And as you will do so anyway you can of course suggest your favourite Auchentoshan if you want to...
I prefer the Three Wood ( new bottle ) which at the moment is still in my top 10....

Truly! I still remember the quite astounding flavour spectrum of that OB 31-year old cask strength edition distilled in 1965.
Amongst the others, it's a close call for me between the 21-year old and the Three Wood, as the latter really does offer subtleties far beyond what one would normally expect from such a 'young' whisky. The 10-year old is, in contrast, a very pleasurable 'everyday' sort of pour. I haven't tried the 18-year old or the newer 12-year old, though I never was all that impressed with the 12-year old bottling from the Eadie Cairns (i.e. pre-Bowmore and Suntory ownership) era.
Given the choices listed above and those I've tried, I'll 'pump' for the Three Wood.

I will agree with that one the 21yr is a classic whisky.
