Thank you...I've been meaning to give HP a try. So that's a winner.
As far as Pulteney is concerned, you may be right although I was thinking that at least it wouldn't be sweet.
I just ran across this:
"Then comes Clynelish at Brora (built in 1969, beside an earlier (1819) distillery) - a sophisticated and complex whisky (hyacinths, fennel, Latakia tobacco), it was once very highly regarded and deserves to be better known."
I used to love Balkan Sobrannie and the Lataka notes sound good to me.
Any experience with it? anyone?
Do you think Clynelish is available in the States? At what price point?
