My experience in alcohol is limited, and I'm afraid I know more of what I wouldn't
For sure, I'd pick Lagavulin 16 year for my scotch whiskey category. Maker's Mark is good, though it's the only bourbon I've tried.
Anyway the categories:
If I understand you properly, you're looking for everybody's favorites, so as to correlate and come up with a list of well-chosen spirits? Good idea.
Pierre Ferrand Ambre
Pierre Ferrand Ancestrale
(all Cognacs, I know -- I don't really bother with brandy except for cooking, and that's Christian Brothers)
(all really different styles)
Cragganmore Distilleries Edition
Caol Ila 18
Lagavulin Distilleries Edition
Have fun and drink in good health...
