Voted for Springbank and Aberlour. The only two on the list I have more than one expression from their range...

I voted for Aberlour and Linlithgow as well. Aberlour because I love the a'bunadh and I have 2 bottles of it at home, plus a few samples of other batches. Linlithgow because I've never tried it, and I have a nice batch of samples on their way!!

Aberlour and Mortlach for me. I don't have any Aberlour just now but have enjoyed it in the past. Mortlach - I have the dregs of a bottle of 16 yo Flora and Fauna which is asking to be killed off and I am looking for an excuse to open a bottle of G&M 15 yo. With a third vote I'd go for Bladnoch.

I went with Mortlach and Springbank of which I have multuple expressions of. A third vote would have gone to Strathmill to give me an excuse to open an older cask strength bottling of. :wink:


Cheers!

Still a week to vote everyone. I wouldn't mind Rosebank, Bladnoch or Mortlach, I have a few of each to try between samples etc. But it's looking like Aberlour might be tough to beat. Between the regular expressions and batches of a'bunadh, I'm sure it will be an interesting one. :D :D

Remember if is leading the first pole does not mean it will will the second..... :-)

Cheers,


True, but it is the runaway leader :o

I'd really like an Aberlour tasting actually. At least it'll give me an excuse to pick up the 18yo I've been meaning to get for ages, and it'd be good to look at the comparisons between all the a'bunadh batches.

I don't mind it being any of these and I haven't voted the last couple times cos it's easier for someone else to make the decision for me :) Anyway, we'll get round 'em all eventually :dead:
