I have noticed a number of "rum cask" whiskies lately like the Springbank, the Glenfiddich and the Glenmorangie. Has anyone tried any of these and what is your opinion? I have a bottle of the Havana Reserve but have not cracked it yet.
My main standby has been the Macallan 18 but I recently discovered the Aberlour Sherry 15 and think it's great.

There is also Greenor, a rum finished Irish Single Grain. I'm quite fond of single grains and Irish Whiskey; and I found this to be very interesting as well.

I thought it was about 18yo, and it was outstanding.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
I totally agree with you, however the price is also outstanding ...
I have also tried the Bushmills Bourbon Cask 1990 54,4 %. It's almost as good but a bit less expensive: 122€. I tried both those bushmills single cask last year at a festival in Paris, I had many very high standard and very expensive malts that night and those two bushmills are from the few that I really remember (when you have too much stuff to drink you only remember the striking drams …).
By the end of the night, I had the luck to take home an almost emptied bushmills rum cask bottle. I had two or tree more shots
