Geektastic: I don't drink much at all but I do have a selection of single malt Scotch on hand which I dip into from time to time (some are from my wedding 10 years ago, so I REALLY don't drink much!)
Available to visitors of taste are:
Lagavullin 16 yo
Laphroig Quarter Cask
Glenlivet 18 yo
Bruichladdich 12 yo
Glenfiddich 18 yo
Ardbeg 10 yo
Caol Isla 16 yo
My personal favourites are the peaty Islay malts and the Quarter Cask in particular is an excellent dram when the rain is lashing the windows!
Ah, the Islay malts - yes, your preference is highly evident from that list.
Again, I'm very late to the party...but have to admit to being a big whisky fan - especially the peaty malts from the west coast islands (Islay, Orkney, Skye). Laphroaig produce my favourite dram. I've been a friend of Laphroaig since 25/05/2000 and have the certificate hanging up near my computer :-)
Only have a bottle of Irish at the moment but will be expanding the range out again in the near future. Harking back to a previous mention of how to best enjoy whisky - it's up to the drinker as it's a personal thing. For me, I like adding a splash of cold water as I find it brings out the aroma's more and seems to enhance the flavours.
