I'm a fan of the Shirley Temple.

I won't speak ill of The Macallan. However, I'm currently favoring Lagavulin.

I keep wanting to like whisky from Islay, but I just can't get a taste for it.

Tried any of the ligher ones, such as Caol Ila? It might be a good compromise for people who find Laphroaig etc to be a bit too much.

Speyside spice and toffee works best for me; though I agree, speak no ill of any island single malt!

Let's talk Scotch.  What's something that doesn't make me look like a chump, and most bars would carry?

this may be a stupid question but.... I don't drink. I know there ia a lot of drinking while networking and that sort of thing but will it be looked down upon if I don't have bourbon with everyone else? The smell and taste of alcohol repulse me so I won't be taking one for the team.

Your option would be club soda then.  I think the standards are set lower for a woman that chooses not to drink.  It may even say, I'm a classy abstainer (It might also say you're crazy, but the days of the hatchet abolitionists are dwindling into the past).  If you're a man and choose not to drink then well.... something must be wrong.  And don't use AA as an excuse.

at a lawyerly function...just tell one of the servers to bring you a ginger ale with a couple of cubes of ice, then deliver it to you and have her say "here is your scotch"....then drink it, drink it all and then seductively moan, like "ahhhh, I really needed that.."  It should do the trick.
