I love Islay's but I also love Speyside whiskies that in my opinion can be more complexed than Islay whiskies. I also love Highland, Island and to a lesser extent Lowlanders of which I've only dabbled with from time to time.
I like quite a few of the Islay distilleries but Ardbeg is not on of them. And have favourite from most other regions also. Japanese whiskey is also gets kudos from me but the price is a bit off putting. Had fun with bourbons too but have not dabbled in a while. In general will give anything a go but irish will always be my first and only love
My favourites are HP, Islands
My least favourite are Islay Whiskies of which i have tried many but do not get what all the fuss is about
Please don`t all shout at me at once.
That said i drink whisky from anywhere
I would like to try Japanese whisky but it appears to be expensive.

I'd say that's location dependent - here in the US, I can get the 12 yo Suntory Yamazaki for about $35 - a good price for a nice mellow dram. Or would that be 'dram-sama'??
We had a poll a year or two back for people to choose their second favourite region. The logic - apparently - was that everyone's favourite would obviously be Islay. I guess, looking at these results, that it was a fair assumption.
I do intend to try Irish, American and Japanese soon - well as soon as the budget will allow
Sometimes I want the light floweriness of a good Lowlander, other times the complexity of a Speysider, then sometimes a peat monster.
I also like some bourbons and I haven't yet tasted a Japanese whisky that I didn't like.
I'm a bit into everything so far, one thing is certain though: I started way high on Peat and now I'm moving toward less peaty, more subtle whiskies. It's a great trip around the place either way !
