    Neat in a tumbler or with the tiniest amount of water.

    My go to at the moment is Glendronach 12, great value and superb whisky, if you like sherry itís well worth trying. The 18 and 21 are obviously amazing, but the 12 is definitely what sits in my (non-lead crystal) decanter and gets topped up as soon as itís finished.

    Plantation XO is in my ships decanter for non relevant info, but itís also my staple, only neat with rum though.

    What makes all the difference is a nice glass in my opinion. Well worth an investment!

Snagged one for £60 on Prime day last week, along with a new (as of 2018 I think) offering of theirs - the casg annamh screen right - a rich, Sherry finished number, 48% and cheaper than the abunadh at £49 or so (£40 on Prime day). The 12 on the left is useless.

    So I think I've found my goldilocks staple now.
    Totally agree....don't under stand how the price had gone up so much in the space of a few years.

    I think it was last prime day sale ended up with 3 bottles for the price of one because they kept sending me the wrong batch

    My dad gave me a couple of drams of the Aberlour 12 unchill filtered at the weekend. 48% abv. It was excellent. Well worth buying a bottle.

    It is different to the standard 12, much better. More expensive as well but worth paying extra for.

    This is how I like it. Neat. There is no way I will destroy this with water or ice.

    This is my favourite pairing.
