Balvenie is a good starter. Other good starters include monkey shoulder, macallan/dewar 12, maybe something like Nikka Coffey Grain or Oban.

If you're trying to get into a peaty dram you could try Lagavulin 16

Oban is really good it tastes more distinctively Scotch like than a lot of the other non peaty ones

You don't have to be like A SCOTCH EXPERT who worked his way up from Johnny Walker through the Glen whatever's to like peaty scotch, Laphroaig was one of the first scotches I ever tried and I loved it but I'd been drinking smoky beers for years

Hah. When I was in Junior High I had a GIANT crush on this one girl at my school (we live in CA). My parents took me to Hawaii and we were eating in the Hawaii Costco and we not only saw that exact girl in Hawaiian Costco, she was in a bikini and it was basically the best day of my young life.

Anyways that's my Hawaii Costco story. The Lord provides. PBUC.

Go into the co and immediately go to the food court. Tell them you want either a whole pep, whole cheese, or whole combo (co for supreme). They'll give you a receipt with a number (do not lose it) and you go do all your shopping. On your way out swing by the food court again and pick up your giant rear end pizza at the window with your receipt. A dog + churro is optional at any step.

Lots (though sadly not all) churches now have a dedicated pizza line that you can place a takeout order from too. Call the listed number for your co and there will be a pizza option on the dial menu.

Nice I saw someone doing this with like 2 pizzas and 4 churros today and wondered how it worked

I think you'll find a huge portion of America is scared of flavor. This shows up some in Food Court but is most noticeable in anything pre prepared. Also seen in Disney.

The way I describe it is "accessible to everyone, even the midwest"

There's a ton of actual good food in Disney, but it's very isolated from the bland poo poo. The best places tend to be in the resorts and in Disney Springs. Otherwise, yes it's very much catered towards the palette for someone from Ohio

Why doesn't the Midwest like flavor anyway, these people are less than a century removed from parts of Europe that eat all kinds of poo poo that may not be "spicy" but has a lot of flavors
