I find that even though heavily peated whiskies are my favorite, I kind of reach my peat limit. Almost like a very rich dessert.
As of right now I would have to say that Highland Park 12 and Talisker 10 (peat but not a lot) are tied. The HP 12 surprises me...but it's just so incredibly smooth and very refreshing. In a previous post I said it moved into my top 10...maybe top 5 now.
Anyway, what's yours?
Glenfiddich 18 Yrs, Ancient Reserve
Highland Park 12&18 Yrs
Lagavulin 12&16 Yrs
Mortlach 16 Yrs
One has to live dangerously
By that i mean, i keep having another helping...and another, just to make SURE it is/isn't that bad!
Had this with the JW Gold( never was convinced all the way to the bottom of the bottle!)also a Glenfarclas 15, and even a couple of SMWS bottles that suddenly come alive about half way down...then they disappear even quicker!!
The glenlivet Nadurra probably takes the prize for the quickest disappearing recently, and at under £30 at waitrose... Deelicious!
Was given a Compass box Asyla last year that I must have been sharing with some very thirsty angels...where did it go?!?
Otherwise, I'm glad I can't afford such costly items as the magnificent Lagavulin 21 of which the Tross kindly sent me a sample...I could marry a whisky like that, and I know she'd be high maintenance!
I'll also add the A'bunadh and the HP 18 .
This is making me thirsty!
Any of 'em can be dangerous on any given day. . .

The 12-year old official bottlings from Caol Ila and Old Pulteney strike me as two well-balanced, high quality, standard-strength whiskies, either of which can all too easily lead to multiple pours. I really like the well-rounded demeanour of the former, and Wick's pride displays an uncanny ability to just fly over one's palate!
Lately, however, Aberlour 16 Year Old seems to be mounting a strong challenge.
