Single Malt Scotch of Choice

Found an old friend this week in South Carolina I don't often see

Talisker's Distiller's Edition. One bottle, and only one bottle (what I usually find!) Store's distributor said he had more and sent them out. Was simple 12 year, not DE. Figures!

I prefer Glenfiddicht 18 year old myself and its very pleasant and easy could not go wrong with a bottle of this great sippin' juice....

I will have to agree 100% with you, on both the sippin' juice, and on the Glen 18. Happens to be up there in my list also.

My current favorites (sticking with bottlings readily available)

Caol Ila 12 -good mix of peat, smoke and sea
Springbank 12 - tangy with a nice touch of peat
Clynelish - like being at a scottish beach
Glengoyne - very approachable and easy going

I recommend Tomatin 12 y/o single malt. It's a speyside with some body, which I enjoy it quite well. I really like some of the fuller Orkney whiskys, but Tomatin is a fair bit cheaper at $25 in my local liquor shop. I understand that they ship the whisky to the USA in the barrel, and bottle it here in order to help keep costs down. I really like this whisky, even if it is less expensive than some of the "big" brands.

Glenlivet 12 year is my favorite. Has anyone tried the 21 archive?
Yes, a friend of mine bought me a bottle back from St. Barts and I opened it when my son was born in last Sept. It was delicious. I also like the Laphroig 30 and the Balvenie 17 yr. sherry cask.

This is excellent and you can also try McClellans. They make both a Highland and Lowland whisky. About $20/ for a bottle.

I have Glenlivet 18 yr and Lagavulin at the house. Both have COMPLETELY different tastes. I drink the Glenlivet neat or on the rocks, and the Lagavulin with a splash of Fiji bottled water. The Lagavulin took me a couple glasses to get used to the really smoky taste, but I like it alot now. Goes great with a 601 black label.

I suggest looking into the Ardbeg Uigeadil. Stellar.

It's very good but I like the 18 or Nadurra even better.

It's good but Old Pulteney 12 is similar but better, IMHO, for a couple bucks more.

Did a search with no luck so I thought I would ask.

Has anyone tried the Cragganmore Distillers Edition? I'm a Craganmore man myself but this ones a high $. Just wanted to know any thoughts.

Thanks in advance.
