Re: Greatest Influence to Your Enjoyment

Taste for me too ( as my nose is note the best in the business :P ). And I agree that taste can work both ways; you either love a taste after the first sip ( for example the Glenmorangie Sonnalta PX for me ) or there is something in it that puts you off on a certain whisky ( for many it's the peat; ...

Re: For a Lagavulin lover, Corryvreckan or Uigeadail?

I love the Laga 16 but didn't care for the Uigadail.

I also loved the 12 CS from 2010 ( and 2008 ) and I think these make a much nicer comparison with the Corryvreckan ( which I also like a lot )

As you liked the Glenfiddich 15 the Balvenie Double Wood 12 will be a good choice indeed. Also The Dalmore 12 would fit. The Glenmorangie Nectar D'or is a great but sweet whisky and wouldn't fit your remark "Not notably sweet mind you, just a hint in the background." A better choice I thin...

You could try the Bowmore 15 Darkest; enough smoke and sweetness and not as strong ( 43% ) as the cask strength Uigeadail ( 54.2% ). I bet you will also get the Highland Park 18 advised; but I found the last bottle I had a bit disappointing and loved the Bowmore better :shock: :wink: ( not many if a...

I agree; for me this is still a very good whisky ( so much better than the normal 12 ) and I love the taste of it.
It is however a bit expensive I think...

And what about Glengoyne? I don't read too much about them here ( lately ) but I love this stuff.
