So,

Just picked up a nice Caol Illa 12 (Gordon Macphail bottling) which isn't too bad. A touch lighter than my other Islay drops but pleasant enough all the same.

Big fan of most Islay whiskeys and, well, that's about it.

Who else is a fan?

I am also a big Islay fan - my favourite probably being Bowmore. I had a fantastic 30 year old bottling I picked up relatively cheaply in Singapore this time last year but it didn't last long. I also rate Bruichladdich and Caol Ila.

On the other side of the pond I really do like good Bourbon. My go-to is a toss up between Woodford Reserve and Maker's Mark.

As mentioned elsewhere, I've discovered a love for Single Malt Scotch.
I've worked my way through all the 30 year olds stocked at Dan Murphys, and quite a few 20 and 25 year olds.

The conclusion of all this extensive research is that Glenfarcla's 30 year old is the best in terms of taste and interestingly, value. At $330 it comes in $180 less than the Glenfiddich 30 yr old; but has a superior taste. They have obviously put the money into the Scotch rather than the fancy wooden box, and that works for me  :thumbsup:

It's getting hard to find though as it is frequently out of stock, so I'm obviously not the only person to discover it.
