Lagavulin you can always send my way, a phenomenal whisky especially the Distiller's Edition. The Isle of Islay, where it comes from, (pronounce eye-lah) is my favourite stomping ground, the real peaty whiskies come from there. Bruichladdich, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Port Ellen (the old distillery, better than the re-opened new one), Caol Ila, and Bowmore has some nice ones too. Glenmorangie is a fave, especially the Port and Sherry finishes. Recently discovered Scapa 16YO, and Oban is great but old mainland Scotland faves are Cragganmore, The Macallan, and Springbank. I'm forgetting many, but what a great drink whisky is. I like that they are so different, you choose them based on your meal and on your mood. That's why I hate blends, they are bland.
So far the very, very best I've had was a 27 YO Bruichladdich. Bought the bottle in 1995 as a student, couldn't afford it. I finished the bottle 2 years ago, it was still amazing. Not as good as the 1936 Armagnac I had once, though, that was truly nectar of the gods.
Too bad I'm in Mali tonight, no decent whisky here. Boohoo.
BTW, If someone has some decent bourbon tips, I'm all ears.
