Re: Most underrated single malt?

My vote goes to Ardmore Traditional Cask.

Can usually be found for a smidgen over £20 - great quality whisky at that price. Dangerously drinkable though :)

Uigeadail is among the few fantastic whiskies for "only" $100 in the U.S. Most whiskies of this caliber are well north of this in price, and often hard to find at your local merchants. If the price isn't too far of a stretch, I highly recommend you acquire a bottle. Keep in mind that if y...
