you pop the 37 yet? I'd love to hear how it is...my wife and I said when we hit a certain milestone in our business, we'd splurge on it, but then it sold the next day from the shop that had it...frown.gif. We would've had to wait a while anyways...

That's a serious dedication to Lagavulin, very nice!

No, too many open bottles around (12 (2009) , 12 (2011), de '91, 16 WH, 16, 21 (2012), and 30)
if you are still looking for a bottle PM.

What do you guys like from the independent bottlers in the 12-21yr range?

which style/distillery?
very little independent laga.
Some mmd and syndicate and a very few others.
Also, supposedly classic of islay and possibly finlaggan.

I'm low on highlands at the moment, so currently I'm kicking around a Longmorn 20 yr bottled by Duncan Taylor.

HP 12, Oban 14, Macallan 10, Macallan 12, Macallan 18, Balvenie 15, Laphroaig 10, Lagavulin 16, Battlehill Macallan 16 (independent bottling from Total Wine), and WhistlePig. Run out of Talisker.

Nice collection
Lagavulin 16 is my favourite, these days I am currently enjoying the Glenlivet 15 Year Old / French Oak Reserve.

Gordon and Macphail George and J.G. Smith Glenlivet 21 is excellent.

 

I've had good luck with G+M, the Classic Cask, First Editions, and AD Rattray. Sorry to say that to date I haven't been impressed with the Duncan Taylor stuff, particularly the Dimensions line.

Thanks LM, I will skip that one in that case. There was a couple from AD Rattay that looked interesting.

don't shoot me but johnnie walker gold 18 the centenary blend (not the new reserve, the discontinued one) has a high proportion of clynelish 18 (a light highland and i think there is only a signatory bottling that is no longer available). at any rate johnnie walker gold at $75, 80 is cheaper than what the clynelish 18 was going for (and pretty much cheaper than any other 18 on the market) and honestly is a good value if you can look past the diageo name.

i realize it's not an independent bottler, but i'm about to go buy some so thought i'd share thoughts

I have a bottle of gold that was a gift, but I generally avoid blends. Looking for one off casks more than anything.
