Re: For a Lagavulin lover, Corryvreckan or Uigeadail?

I'm not overly impressed with the Uigedail, but the Corryvreckan is excellent. I believe 30% of the Corry is matured in new french oak casks

I've been to Pitlochry but toured the Blair Athol Distillery instead and couldn't make it to Edradour, they used to know as the smallest distillery in Scotland but with the recent batc...

Re: Plans for Scotch, Edinburgh and Scotland

For purchasing suggestions I'd definately go for some of the expressions that a) can only be purchased in person from the distillery eg Blair Athol, Glendronach and/or b) 'fill your own' straight from the cask eg at Aberlour(best value tour by far),Glendronach, Benromach. Both the above are also to ...

Good whisky? Yes. But you can easily find many Single Malts which are better(in my opinion) for a fraction of the cost.

Re: Smokiest whisky?

Great responses. Very educational. I will now try to distinguish between peaty and smoky. Maybe Ardbeg 10 vs. Lagavulin 16? Any differences you find between peaty and smoky will be purely imaginary as they are exactly the same thing. The barley is dried by burning peat which produces an intense smo...

For Lowland DEFINATELY go for a Bladnoch. They are all excellent, but probably the best of all is the 8 year old Beltie Label botted at 55%.(Non chilfiltered and no colouring) Not sure what the trade price would be but retails around £36ish.
