Distillery Visit Recommendations

I am going to be travelling to the north west of Scotland (Isle of Skye) and would really appreciate some advice / recommendations on what distillery I should visit. I am after a really good tour / tasting and maybe with the oppurtunity of buying a unique 'wee drop' of something special that you mig...

Ardbeg

Can anyone give me an indication whether a bottle of Adrbeg Airigh Nam Beist is a good bottle to by from a collection point of view... will its value increase? I can get it for about 60 Pounds or $US 85

Talisker 10

Hoping someone can help steer in teh right direction. I absolutley love the spicey, smokiness of Talisker. What other whiskies come close? I know none would exceed :-) I have tried Ardbeg, Caol Isla and Lagavulin (all of which I like), but really want to know if there are other whiskies like Talisker.

Help me choose

I absolutely love Talisker and Ardbeg. Is this whisky worth it as a treat http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-9616.aspx

or am I better to just save the extra money and getting a 1litre bottle of the standard 10 of Talisker?

Advice on a whisky flask

I am wanting to get a good quality smallish whisky flask. Can anyone give me some advice or things to look for (e.g. pewter vs stainless).

At the moment I am looking at this one, http://www.gentlemans-shop.com/acatalog ... flask.html

Any one seen or handled these, are they good quality?

Help with next whisky please

I have been trying to decide what my next bottle of whisky should be. I have been sticking with single malts; and ahve absolutely loved Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Talisker and Caol Isla. Highland Park was nice but not in the same league. I thought Laphroeig QC and Belvenie very average (my tastes). I am loo...

Establishing age of bottling

I have just received a bottle of Lagavulin 16yo. For sentimental reasons I really want a bottle which was bottled in 2007. How can I find out what year a bottle of whisky was bottled in, e.g. the bottle of Lagavulin I have?

Talisker - Crap !!

I bought a bottle of Tailser, after advice from this forum. I was going to wait until my bottle of Ardbeg was finished before trying it ... but temptation got the better of me and I opened it during the course of the week. I have had 2 or 3 taste testings, and all I can say is 'oh crap, how the hell...

Whisky Flasks

This may sound like a odd question but how do you get the whisky in the flask without getting it all over the place ... hate spillage. And how well does whisky store in a flask?

Re: Ardbeg 10 Year Old

I sort of understand what you mean about noy getting it. The first time I tried a Ardbeg 10, it was at a gathering where everyone was raving about another whisky ... can't remember think it might have been a expensive bottle of Johnny Walker. All I could think was, bugger the JW ... give me the Ardb...

Re: Ardbeg 17 vs Lagavulin 12

I didn't realise that there was more than one 12 year old. The one on offer is the Lagavulin 12 a cask strength (special release). Not sure if that changes people's opinion. I must say, I like the idea of the cask strength Lagavulin
