give me a good old style Macallan anyday! give me some more rosebank!
I'd love another SMWS 5 YO Arran - like a sweetshop in a bottle... and the Yamazaki 18 YO was one of the surprises of late. So many delights to savour on one's travels.
But a good Ardbeg is like a homecoming...

If that's the case, then I'll likely find myself beneath a ton or two of earth in no time flat.
Yes, I love Islay whiskies. But for me, be it concerning wine, beer or spirits, variety has always been the key factor. And intrinsic quality! Would I therefore pass up the chance to imbibe a venerable Glen Garioch or Macallan or Auchentoshan in favour of a fine Ardbeg or Lagavulin or Bruichladdich? The thought of potential deprivation sends shivers up my spine.
Would hate to go without any of the other though ! I love Lowlands, Highlands (+ speyside), Islays.. oh, com'on, bring them all.

I don't really believe in regionalism, but I vote for Lowland just to be contrary.

Yes, I'll follow the flock to Islay, but I do enjoy sooo many whiskies from other regions too!
Hell I'm not even drinking whisky tonight - it's grappa and a damn fine one too: Distileria Berta Bric Del Gaian!

Campbelltown would be first choice, alas it wasn't an option. Second comes Speyside. I refuse to vote.
