I'd highly suggest Oban if anyone likes Scotch.

Going through a period of trying Japanese whiskeys and enjoying it.

Oban is on my list. Oban 14 is listed as one of the "Six Classic Malts".

Had a bottle a few years ago but don't remember too much about it, but I drank it all relatively quickly so can't have been bad!

I've had Hibiki 12 (I think) which was decent, a Japanese blended whisky.

I'm a big fan of it. They do a 15 and 18 year too I believe which I once had in what was a former Soho flophouse

I agree. Of the many i've tried over the years Laphroaig is my favourite by quite some margin. Love the stuff.

My old boss got her husband a bottle of Ardberg Alligator for their wedding anniversary a couple of years ago but told him he wasn't allowed to open it as it was too expensive to drink <laugh>

Last time I saw a bottle of that it was about $400. Lots of money for a bottle your not allowed to drink.

Yeah, I find with those kind of things that you get bang average beers, but if you're cancelling straightaway then nothing to lose.

I agree, it's spectacular. See if you can get a bottle of laphroaig cairdeas or Ardbeg Uigeadail. Both similar and both great.

Got a bottle of Russell's Reserve Barrel Proof. Bloody good stuff. Definitely recommend getting a bottle if you can.

Having my first taste of Eagle Rare this evening.

Up there with Woodford Reserve and Jeffersons for me and it's possible that by the time I reach the bottom of the bottle it may well be my favourite. Enjoying it immensely!
