    Laphroaig 10 is a ridiculously good scotch, especially when one considers the price.

    Agreed, although Laphroaig may well fall into the "special character" category.

    Is Lag as peaty as Talisker?

    I'm partial to Glenlivet and Glenmorangie. In fact give me anything which begins with those first four letters and I won't complain. I tried Dalwinnie (sp?) after some thread recs last year but was a little disappointed.

    +1 on Macallan

    Lagavulin is peatier than Talisker, not as peaty as Laphroaig. Macallan is great and very drinkable.

    Okay, I'll stop posting these pictures....at some point! [​IMG] On your list, you need Cragganmore Distillery Edition. If I had to pick from your poll, the Balvenie 12 y/o. [​IMG]

    is "Arbberg" really "Ardbeg"? If that's the case it is quite good. I also happen to be a big Lagavulin fan....

    Laphroaig. Lagavulin comes in second. It's a pity most bars in Sydney don't have them.

    What? You expect me to narrow my favorite whiskies down to 9 choices?

    What kind of drunkard do you take me for? [​IMG]

    Yes, Ardbeg. Obviously the OP has missed another fine single malt, Oban. Definitely up there with Lagavulin and Laphroaig.

    love JW Blue Label....I like any of the JW offerings, but the Blue obviously the best

    The sad thing is erica, put against the other two bottles of Scotch there, it tasted like stewed iodine band aides. Both the Duncan and the 21 y/o Balvenie are much smoother.

    The only Scotch I really drink is the 15.

    If I had to choose a JW, I actually prefer black label. But that may be colored by my view that blue label is incredibly underwhelming for the price.

    You just love the abuse, you seek it out. What color panties does the iced tea come with?



    I don't think I've tried 10 different scotches. I have simple tastes, the Glenlivet French Oak or 18 year pretty much do it for me.

    I'm surprised you even like scotch, Mr. Stella Artois.

    Why do you need so many scotches? I would be happy with a collection limited to Macallan 18 and an Islay (probably Laphroaig 12 or 15).
