    i like my Whisky but as a driver (on shifts) i dont get nearly enough time to sample anymore. Im even having a cigar without a wee dram recently.

    im Scottish and most of my collection is Scotch. My favorite tipple is Bushmills 10 but my go to Whisky is Bushmills blended - both Irish Whisk(e)y
    the only others ive only tried is Japanese whisky and bourbons. the Japanese stuff is really nice and ive yet to try a bourbon id try again!

    all the bottles in the boxes are full, ive an attic full of empty boxes lol and a fridge top full of opened bottles

    Have just ordered some Lagavulin 16. Islay has not been too good to me in the past, but this receives such consistent praise, that it deserves a place in the cabinet. Hoping I like it/grow to like it, if not, I'm sure future guests will help finish the bottle!

    I'd like to get into peat; I think it would open more possibilities for me as I tend to stick to Speyside.

    Try some Jura superstition or tailisker Skye

    They are quite lightly peated

    I'm sure I've had Superstition, but a long time ago.

    Just had a drop (literally) of the Lagavulin 16 that I ordered. It's good. Strange, but good. As I said earlier, I'm used to Speyside, but this has a complex, almost medicinal sweetness, in some ways, sweeter than a Speyside. The smokiness is there, but nowhere near as pronounced as I was expecting. Reminds me of Lapsang Souchong in a way. Will need to spend more time with this one, but so far, so good.

    I have seen a few mentions of Lagavulin 16 here and just thought I would let you know that Costco UK now does it at 43 a bottle.

    I really like the Craigellachie...took a punt on it last year and it was lovely.

    Not convinced on the GOT additions.
