Decision-One Malt to Drink that's it..Forever

Postby Peter07 » Sat Jun 16, 2012 7:38 pm

You have a decision to make. You can only have one malt to drink, forever. Choose wisely, and then decide. My choice...Lagavulin 16

I'm cheating slightly by saying this:

Aberlour Abunadh. ( I get to switch between batches right?)

Are you looking for something that is regularly available or can we select something that is vintage...one time release?

72 25 yo Macallan from Murray McDavid as a one time release.

Regularly available Talisker 25.

Perhaps, we should make it a regular available. However, it would be tempting to make it a one time release.

Tough one. It has to be affordable, because it would be bad to be locked in to something I can no longer afford. Uigeadail is kinda borderline there, due to a variable and sometimes high price. Lagavulin is better, in that respect, but the quality is (perhaps strangely) more variable than Uigie. Maybe the Laga DE would be a better bet. And probably more likely to remain on the shelves for a long time to come.

On the other hand, Talisker 10 would be safe. Not as complex as the others (complexity is key, over the long run), but really, could I ever get tired of Tal?

Hmm... :?

I'll go with the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition.

Easy for me!
Rosebank 12 flora fauna.
(or should I make it that Rosebank 21 smws bottle?)
(or the Glenfiddich 21 rum finish?)
(Or the Glenfarclas 21?)
(Glengoyne 17?)
Actually, I am not very good at this, am I?
Doh!
