    Age statements help. I sure as heck hope that you are not hating on Talisker 25.

    i've tried all but the auchentoshan because the lowlands are another i haven't really developed much interest in. i'd rank them, in general, as such:

    glenmorangie > talisker > macallan > glenfiddich. but that's just my personal taste. i won't turn any of those down, that's for sure.
    oh and i actually prefer the younger taliskers to the 18, which is the oldest one i've had. i find them to be more gentle, yet still smoky and peppery.

    I hit bevmo every couple of weeks to restock my Bailey's Irish Cream and I have to keep myself from grabbing another bottle of scotch every trip. lol, those trips can get expensive.

    I try and limit a new bottle to every couple of months.

    Serious business for a serious celebration.

    Then again, its relatively nothing compared to some friends of mine that shared a Port Ellen 4th Edition upon learning the news that Bin Laden was killed.

    My in laws live about 10 mins from Talisker distillery so I took a trip down there for a distillery tour, easily one of the most scenic distilleries in Scotland.

    Take a look at that view.



    I then took a trip to the Old Inn pub near the distillery and had another sneaky scotch there too.

    Just visited a friend who spent about a week in Scotland. Very picturesque country. He even brought back either a similar or that same bottle of Cragganmore. We didn't get around to sampling it though in favor of a Glendronach, Glenmorangie, Oban, Aberlour, Ardbeg Supernova, Chichibu (yeah Japanese, go figure), Lag, and Society Laphroig (and I also ennjoyed my new Rosebank Flora & Fauna and Signatory Royal Lochnagar). All of the scotches were single barrell bottlings which are not sold outside GB, and some are only available at the distillery just like that Cragganmore. If you're going to get some whisky in Scotland its nice to know its something you can't buy here in the states.

    Lowlands should not be discounted. Yes they are few in numbers, but tend to be some of the more interesting whiskies because of it. Very floral and delicate. I am enjoying a Rosebank 12 now, and it is f'in fantastic (and I'm drunk as a skunk).

    Give Lowlands a try. Start with a Rosebank or Littlemill. Littlemill is considered in my circles to be an "unscotchy" scotch. It has such unique flavor characteristics typical of melon; canteloupe, watermelon, honeydew, etc. Really good stuff, and not terribly expensive either.

    Slainte!

    thanks, we're running low (just a few drams of highland park left) so that might just be what i include in my husband's father's day gifts.
