I agree that the Caoran doesn't work Adrian. It's drinkable, but the flavours don't work together. You should try to get a taste of the 18 though. It is much nicer than the 12.vengey wrote:Just curious, has anyone changed their minds after the live tasting?
As to what their favourite 'fiddich is? I suppose I was impressed by the 30 as a quality dram, but I wouldn't pay the money for it. The 18 is nearly as good IMO and is a lot cheaper.

I've since bought another full bottle of 12 for 'everyday' drinking and an 18yo for special occasions, which happily seem to arrive quite frequently
My wife, who is not a great whisky fan, also preferred the 18 which was a surprise. I thought shed prefer the Solara as she usualy goes for a lighter malt.
Perhaps I'll make a convert of her yet!
Don't do it Derek!! Think of the expense!

Tasting them altogher, I'd rank them in this order: 18, 15 CS, 12, 15. The 18 was a great balance of malt, fruit and wood. The 15 was a bit too fruity for me.
