Some suggestions

Postby Clyne » Mon May 23, 2011 11:40 pm

Hello,
I'm interested in trying other whiskies so I thought I'd ask the experts around here what they'd suggest.
The single malts I like are Cragganmore, Talisker, Clynelish, Springbank, Lochnagar, etc, and I've tried most of the better-known ones, from all regions of Scotland. Which not so well-known whiskies should I go for?
Thanks

Benriach (especially the peated varieties)
Bladnoch (high proof/cask strength versions preferably)
Brora (if you can come across any distilled from the early to late 1970s, you'll be in 7th heaven)
Glen Garioch (15YO or 21YO to start, older peated versions distilled in the late 1960s or early 1970s if you really want to get serious)
Longrow (the CV represents an excellent starting point)
Longmorn (the older 15YO edition if you can find it, or the newer 16YO release otherwise)

Brora, longmorn and bladnoch is a good sugestion.

I am adding lochside. (a favorite of mine) 1966 and 1981 vintage being the best.

Recent release of littlemill 1989 and 1991 are not bad if not very good (grass + fruits).

Thank you.
pkt77242, I get original bottlings but have had some by Signatory Vintage. I remember a very good Highland Park bottled by them. In what way is IB better?
