I thought the Dalwhinnie was good, too. Any one tried Bunnahabhain 12? It's an Islay. (Price is a concern) My state (Oregon) decided to drop it, so now I have to go to Warshington to get it. Stupid state liquor control.

Glennfidich - straight from the bottle

It lives on the kitchen counter and I will have a mouthful when I want, some times after a long hard cycle ride, some times after dinner, some times just sitting in the evening.
On multi day cycle rides it always comes with usand usually starts with breakfast.

Yes, there are others out there, I have had some nice ones too but like tires for moto's, cars and pushies it could get expensive finding one that works.

Glenlivet "Nadurra" 16 year old
I drink it with a splash of warm water to open it up and cut the 59.7% to a mild burn. I've converted friends that typically don't drink scotch really enjoy it that way too. Wine Enthusiast pretty much hits it on the head.



92 points Wine Enthusiast
Light and versatile, although at over 100 proof 'natural cask strength,' this golden spirit could stand some dilution, whether via a dose of ice water or mixing into a cocktail. Perfumy floral-honey nose, with flavors of vanilla lemon, oak, and a hint of smoke on the finish. (12/ 2011)

90 points Whisky Advocate
Aged exclusively in first-fill bourbon casks and bottled unfiltered and at natural cask strength. This takes the usually subtle Glenlivet and makes it more vibrant, amplifying its flavors while accentuating the bourbon oak. Tight notes of honeyed malt, vanilla bean, toasted oak, bright fruit, and nuts, are peppered with more subtle floral and spice notes. Dry, spicy finish. A Glenlivet with pizzazz.

Any one try....

Grangestone (12yr)?

We just got rid of the state run liquor stores here and we now have a lot better choices. Tried this on a recommendation and it works pretty well. New to me and not on the list but might be worth trying. As usual the older ones are supposed to be much better and of course more $

I'm by no means a seasoned Scotch/whiskey drinker, although I did enjoy a bit of Bushmills in Ireland.

We'll see, though, as Santa left me some Laphroaig Quarter Cask under the tree. I look forward to giving it a try.

Anyone one a distillery tour?

I'm thinking about giving it a go either next summer or the summer after.

i've visited a few distilleries in scotland and kentucky.

there's a cool distillery in the hudson valley region of ny state:

http://www.tuthilltown.com/

their baby bourbon is well reviewed. i like their rye.

and there's another small distillery in the fingerlakes region of ny:

http://www.fingerlakesdistilling.com/

one thing to realize about the distilleries is that most brands/distilleries are owned by a small handful of companies. the labels on the bottles might make it sound like a family/small town tradition, but this is huge business.

Up to over $600 for that 25 yo Macallan in the Seattle area.

Cardhu, Balvanie (portwood 21 preferrably, doublewood is good too) and Oban are my favs. I like the highland malts.
