Not whisky as such but enjoying a drambuie as I type this (unadulterated by ice or diluted by mixers of course).

Balvenie Doublewood is the one atm. Not had Macallan 88 (?) but the 10 and 12 are banging. Right up my alley.

Laphroaig is alright but I prefer Talisker - not so OTT with the 'look how peaty I am' thing.

Cragganmore is banging if you like it clean too. Like that a lot Yes

Talisker is one of my favourites, lovely smokey/peatey taste. Laphroaig to me is witches' piss - its like someone took a good whisky then rinced it with seaweed.

I may get off the fence soon and tell you what I really think Grin

Get to a specialist / online and track down some of this:

I was recommended to it by a friend (who happens to work in a specialist whisky shop) as being good if you like Talisker and Lagavulin and it is absolutely fantastic.

Speaking of the Big T, a moment comparable in stature to me and Alison's visit to the Tiptree Jam Factory tea rooms:

This is the Macallan I was talking about.. A 21 year old bottled last year which is surprisingly smooth for 43%. The Spice Tree on the other hand is flavour mania..Really intense..

found a bottle of Laphroaig Quarter Cask left on my doorstep last night, by my sisters-ex who we don't really see anymore. Fair play to him.

Truth be told - it's fucking horrible Hahaha

....at 48% though, it's safe to say i'll be chinning and grimmacing come boxing day afternoon when i'm finally off work for a couple of days Grin

I got one bottle of the basic Laphroig 10yo from my parents and one from Alison's.

I mean, I'm not looking a gift horse in the mouth and I don't not like Laphroig, but next year I might have to start dropping subtle hints about how nice Talisker and Lagavulin are some time in early november...

Present from my housemates. 60.5% single malt. Frankly, it burns.

Also enjoying a 12yo Deanston for milder occasions.

had some of this in denver a couple months back it was bottle #4 out of like five hundred which had me thinking I should have saved it but it was proper good (I like most the Islays i've tried) I like Scotch Whisky and to go off the path anyone that likes extremely good tequila check out Del Maguey it is prob pretty hard to get if you're not down the street from Mexico but I would honestly say it is the best mescal period especially the pachuga

Not really into the really smokey whiskeys to be honest.

I've got a bottle of Dewar's 12 year on the go at the moment which is pretty tasty and really smooth.
