There are some very impressive finds on this posting.
I too discovered Balblair 1997, awesome, and my first thought was pineapples, believe it or not!!!
For me, though, pound for pound was the ledaig sherry finish, which I cannot apparently purchase anymore, together with a Benromach madeira finish which arrived by accident (long story) -neither distilleries would be top of my list (nor bottom, I might add) but both were an unexpected pleasure, and extremely good value for money.
A heads up for the future, I have now also tried the Arran 12yo which I think will be a superstar, if you like previous Arran deliverings, of course.
Hope the current bad weather is not upsetting too many of you. Unfortunately the sun will not reach the yardarm today so I am going to have to go with that old "it is 5 o clock somewhere" excuse in a minute....
