I have spent a lot of time researching this subject and must say that it really is a matter of your mood at any given time. However one that a find fits the bill a lot of the time is Strathisla 12 year old single malt. Not wishing to pass on false information I have taken care to test a small sample before posting this message and I can confirm that it is very smooth. TRY 5S Buzzin' Bee It's never too late for a happy childhood You don't stop playing because you get old You get old because you stop playing

You'll get as many recommendations as there are people giving them on this topic FWIW, even as a keen whisky drinker I just can't stomach the smokier Islay malts. Try before you buy when it comes to these, I should think. Me, I'm a Longmorn man, though Bruichladdich is an Islay malt I find most agreeable. And then there's the cask strength Aberlour I treat myself to a dram of now & then, very fine.

Sacrilege Giles, are you a lager drinker Drolling available here I was disappointed to read that Brian enjoys scotch at £12.00 per bottle .... Blatchat is no place to read about such activities Edited by - Micky on 25 Jan 2004 14:52:34

Don't be so la-di-dar. What's wrong with good old Bells?

Micky. Laphroaig is my favourite tipple.. it's my wife who objects. Problem is that it is my achilles heel; can never drink it in moderation. Luckily I am flying to Scotland tomorrow, so I'll do some tasting on Blatchat's behalf and report back

Most of the blended variety are not worth drinking except for small splash in your coffee on a cold day. But there are a few good ones around. After many years of dedicated research and drinking lots of coffee, Black Bottle is very good. You cannot compare it to the finest single malts, but if I was offered a choice of Black Bottle and the best selling single malt, which comes in a triangular bottle, I choose BB. If you have never tiried it, you should. If you don't like it - Put it in your coffee! Brian

What special offer? I am not keen on the Port/Madeira/Sherry Glenmorangie offerings but their standard malt is very good. At the end of the day you get a lot of pleasure trying as many different ones as you can. Also visiting the many distilleries is most enjoyable. The visits themselves are not that special, but you get to drive around Scotlands wonderful scenery. Maybe an idea for a Blat, although the temptation of the free tipple would not mix with driving the seven. Brian

Strongly recommend Glenmorangie, the 10yr old is nice and smooth with a taste that flows all the way down your neck where others only taste in the mouth. Slight peaty taste lovely Or a 15 yr Glen mo depending on budget 1.4ss Yellow/Black striped Seven...Who said you needed to die to get to heaven??!!!
