Time to tally! Amazingly, no fewer than forty-three bottles got votes. Well, forty-two--Badmonkey voted for Alberta Premium! Survey says...errrrnt. Here is the count, with applicable comments:

Ardbeg 17 Not right now--this is now an heirloom bottle.

Balvenie PortWood The idea to keep a Balvenie open is a good one. Under consideration.

A couple of you have mentioned warm weather coming, and my answer to that is...calvados! I have a Père Magloire 20yo and a Busnel Millésimé (1963!). The fruitiness of calvados strikes me as being well suited to warm weather, although both of these are quite old and perhaps more oaky/whiskylike. But I've had them for two-and-a-half years now, so it's time to crack one of them, maybe in June.
So here's what we have:
Lagavulin DE 1980
Glen Rothes Signatory ucf
Bruichladdich Tonga Valinch
Signatory Islay CS
That's the short list. Any more thoughts?
