I've enjoyed every Laddie I've had, and there are so many to try - so I'm starting with that.

St. Magdalene has faced rejection too many times. It is my second. (Plus I've had one sample of it and it was excellent - ty ryguy)

I voted Ardbeg (because it's so damn good) and also St. Maggie's (for obvious reasons stated above).

St. Magdalene - Not as much because I want to try more (obviously I'd love to though), but I really think other people need to be shown what a great distillery it was. Every sample I've had has been really good to excellent IMO.

I voted for Ardbeg and Glenmorangie as these are the two I have most expressions of.

I've never actually made it to on of the live tasting nights yet, but have my fingers crossed I can make October.

Martin, we are also doing a Port Ellen tasting on Oct 4th, and an Irish Whisky tasting Nov 15th. And if you can make it, Bladnoch is next up...it's being held on Sept 20th. :thumbsup:
