I realize I've only had a couple Highlands scotches and one Islay. Just wondering if anyone could recommend any others to try out next!
I love Macallan, so if and when you are ready to try more, look for the 15 and my favorite, the 18, its a bit expensive, so don't rush on this. You will appreciate it much more when you get a good acquired taste for scotch. A few others to try out.. in between the 12-15 year range.
The Balvenie (14 year Caribbean Cask is great, 15 is awesome as well)
Oban 14 (my personal favorite and go-to scotch)
My most recent new one that I am enjoying.. Bruichladdich The Laddie Ten Year. After a solid two years of drinking the more popular scotches, I am finally starting to get into the less well known scotches just to keep my interest going. If you liked the Laphroiag, you will enjoy this scotch. It isn't at peaty, but it packs a punch and still gives a smooth finish. Delicous!
Thanks for the recommendations! I'll definitely try out some of those, I checked out the Laddie Ten Year today, heard some really good things about it, also the Bruichladdich Peat Project, have you tried it out? Haven't seen the Macallan 15 in any liquor stores yet, but I'll keep an eye out for it
