Well I found glenlivet 12, it was $47 for a bottle of first fill 12, the regular 12 was $45, so I got the first fill, it was only $2 more. How should I try it, on the rocks or just straight up?
Always straight up. Take your time, two fingers should last as least as many hours. The alcohol will slowly change character over time (absorbing water from the air). You'll get different notes and aromas from start to finish.

I don't drink all day, but when I do I prefer Four Roses Small Batch, but drink Maker's Mark. I also like Tanqueray, but drink Beefeater.

If you have a BevMo near you, when it goes on "Club Bev" pricing, it's usually around $35.99 for Glenlivet 12 YO. For Scotch, I drink it straight up. The same goes for most typical 80 proof burbons. I also watch my local grocery store chain (Safeway) for periodical sales on booze too.

When I drink Knob Creek 100 and the 120 proof burbons, I add a few cubes of ice, to lessen the "bite" or "hotness" of them.

Well, appearance it looks like a gold rum or an anejo tequila, not darker like a traditional bourbon or whiskey normally looks like.. Taste wise it's not what I expected, it's kinda sweet and has a slight fruitiness that I can't put my finger on. It's good, but in a different kinda way. I'm totally surprised, it's nothing like you would think a scotch would be like.
