id say the glendronach 15yo, but as it getting like hens teeth, id say a farclas due to their easy to get nature

I'm partial to the Mortlach F&F bottling though it's not as heavily sherried as some like Macallan or Glendronach, it's a wonderful whisky anyway! I haven't tried that particular bottling of Dailuaine ...yet, but it looks yummy! :D


Cheers!

Aberlour, period. Even the Cask strength and abunadh are in a similar league...tho' for me the abunadh is a touch better...

But for me, nothing beats the initial hit, both on the nose and the palate, of the classic standard stength, sherried Mac 10 and 18...

I haven't tried the F&F Mortlach, but the wee taste of G&M's 15 seemed to me to be in that ballpark.

I'm always mystified when Glenfarclas comes up as a sherry monster. Sherry, sure, but nowhere near that range, in my mind.

What about Jon Mark & Robbo's, "Rich Spicy One"? It was crafted entirely with the intention of imitating Macallan!

If you get a chance try the Bushmills Sherry Cask strength which although not very widely available is a good alternative to Macallan. I think it is widely available in Duty Free though.
