Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

Depends on the night. Can't imagine having the same one on a real regular basis with all the choices out there. Especially now that there are some good one's coming out of places like Japan, Ireland, Taiwan and India . I know these aren't "single malt scotch", but that's just a matter of semantics.

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

All time favorite is Macallan 18, but at the rate I drink scotch that would bankrupt me fairly quickly. More reasonably priced, non "special occasion" favorites are Oban & Highland Park.

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

Glad to see this one bumped again.

I fell in love with my first dram of Caol Ila 12yr -- IMO a more balanced, subtle Islay (if such a thing exists). My wife, who is not a whisky drinker, had a taste and said she'd like to have it again sometime. Which is good news bc she'll be more agreeable with me buying a bottle, but bad news bc I'll have to share and it won't last as long. meh, better than none at all I guess. Aren't I just the sweetest?

Currently into a fantastic bottle: Laphroaig Quarter Cask -- mmm lawdy, that finish goes on for dayyyys.

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

Oops...didn't realize this thread was nearly a year old when I replied, but hopeful it picks up again -- always looking for new scotch to try!

Macallan 18 is one I have always wanted to try, I should probably pick up a case.... or maybe just a bottle .

There are only a few I haven't really liked but the fav's are Lagavulin 16 and more recently Highland Park 18. I picked up a bottle of the latter 2 or 3 weeks ago and noticed there is only about a quarter of it left. Damn it, how does that happen?

He's thrown a kettle over a pub, what have you done?

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

My current favorite is ardbeg corryvecken. I like pretty much any Islay. For lighter, sweeter whiskey I like bourbon. But, unless its poured for me I stick to Islay scotches.

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

I have a bottle of that too- very good. A little smokier than Lagavulin even.

Re: Single Malt Scotch of Choice

Didn't read through this whole thread, but even if someone already mentioned it, it needs mentioning again: Aberlour A'Bunadh. Such good stuff and reasonably priced.
