    I think this was the bottle you are a genius. What is your expert opinion on this?

    Huge fan for the price. I bought one, tried it, then bought three more.

    Cool! Mortlach is pretty singular, they have a richness I rarely otherwise encounter.

    The timing was bizarre, I would have never noticed it had it not been for your post. The intro, body, finish and profile were all great there was not one thing I didn't like about it. It was pretty damn smooth too compared to the highland 1991 signatory bottling I think it was my buddy had not to mention superior.

    Presentation is nice for a gift; it does depend on the preferences of the recipient. I don't care what it looks like.

    Get Purple Label. Blue Label is for plebes and women.

    I've always been an Islay man with Lagavulin16 being my favorite. I like Laphroig QC, 15 and 18 (when I can find it) occasionally and Talisker as well.

    I can drink the Speysides but they're not very interesting to me.

    I like the reek but I'm wanting to get away from the iodine and kelp....just for the novelty/experience if nothing else.

    So...what I'm looking for is a really good Highland Malt (no blends)...somewhere under or around $100.00. Priced like Lag perhaps. Nothing under 12 years old.

    Any suggestions?

    Glenmorangie?

    No wooden presentation box with any of those. Pls go.


    :lol:


    Just curious but what is it about the Speysiders that don't do it for you? What's your opinion on sherry bombs?

    Too sweet, not enough (any) peat.

    I'm thinking Pulteney might suit me...

    If you're looking for peat and smoke without the sea-side elements, I don't think Old Pulteney will fit the bill... if anything, they are the reverse. My go-to for (some) peat and smoke without the sea-side blast of Islay and Talisker is HP18.

    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?
