Great story! Love it. Reminds me of an Irish friend that gets quite...shall we say...patriotic when he gets into his cups of Jameson - Aye, the water of life!

I am a bourbon man, but have throughly enjoyed the Laphriog on occasion. I love the peat.

Caol Ila is making a strong run on Lagavullin 16 as my favorite malt.

Competition is good.......it keeps you drinking!

This thread is killing me as I'm 12 days into the detox part of my diet. 18 more days before I can have alcohol, caffeine or a cigar again.
But once again I'm amazed at the breadth of knowledge on this forum. And I'll be chiming in when and if we talk about good cabernets.

Favorite? "The Famous Grouse"

I enjoy most whiskeys except Canadian whiskey. The most exciting Scotch to me in the last year or so has been the Bruichladdich "Laddie 10".

Now, that's a new one on me; and I thought I'd tried most of them.

During the mid-'80's I was assigned to find a European-based manufacturing facility site for some products that we were developing. I looked all over Europe, mostly talking to the governments of countries who were interested in switching their old smokestack industries into more modern ones; and, of course, Biotech qualified then as an up and comer.

In the end, we decided on Scotland; based on some very positive financial incentives, as well as a good pool of well-trained people. Working with the Scottish Development Agency (SDA) put me in Scotland about 1/2 time for almost 6 months, negotiating the agreement.

While in Scotland, I stayed outside of Livingston; close to Edinburgh, in an old manor house called the Houston House. In the cellar of that house, they had over 100 scotch malts. And by the time I left, I had happily drunk my way through well over half of them; and I knew at least a little something about the others; or so I thought..................

I see that Tomatin is a Highland malt; claiming to be the best in that region; I wonder what Highland Park thinks of that claim................................. Guess I'll just have to get a bottle and run the experiment myself.................boy, you can retire, but the work never ends does it?

I prefer Irish whiskey (Bushmill's 21), but my nephew recently gave me some Lagavullin to try. Enjoyed it, but still prefer Irish.
