    I've never tried that one. Spring Bank Burbon Wood is by far the best I've ever had. It's fermented for 15 years in old burbon casks, man it's smooth. It's just hard to find as they only bottle a small amount.

    Cheers,

    George

    It's one of the Isla single malts, and for me, they're the best of all single malts.

    I dabble with it, certainly high quality, but I reckon I'm still in JF's "breakin" period which dates back several years. When in doubt, I'll usually fall back on Bushmills from that little Island to the west of the Scots......breakemall

    I think it tastes like a frog crawled in and died.

    But to each his own.

    Nice. Lagavulin isn't a million miles away - even peatier if I recall correctly.

    There is now also a new Welsh whisky called Penderyn.

    http://www.welsh-whisky.co.uk/

    The bottle I had a couple of years ago when it was first released was a bit rough, but the one this year was pretty good.

    Whiskies are like guns. You can't have too many, but all at once will give you a sore head.

    Andrew.

    Laphroig's , the Scotch of Kings. Kings that like to have their whisky taste like iodine and azz.The ten year is just plain nasty to me and is the longest lasting bottle out of the forty on my shelf at one time.A dram of 30 year still lasts me a long time.My favorite,French oak finish Glenlivet , the nectar of the gods!!! LOL, Jeff

    Lafroig is the SM I take when my booze bumming buddies are likely to cut into my supply. They never go back for the second drink. It will never be my favorite as long as iodine and kerosene are major ingredients. Oddly, I would kill for a bottle of Cask Strength 'vulin. Go figure.

    Yes - it's good, kind of heavy - drink with heavy orderves. Balvinney DoubleWood is good too, a little lighter weight - kind of in the same regioinal family of single malts.

    Great stuff, very rich, I remember my late father drinking it after dinner in very small quantities as if it were a liquor. It is also good, as I recall, in small amounts, on a scoop of high quality vanilla ice cream.

    I like The Famous Grouse for a blended scotch. Good value.

    I would not turn it down, but find myself drinking lighter single malts.
