Thought this was a WHISKY forum.

A more appropriate poll would be

"What is the LAGAVULIN (or Macallan or...) of cars"

How can anything but whisky be the defining barometer???

Since a very well established contributor to WM and one of the first whiskywriters 'tout court', called Macallan the "Rolls Royce" of Single Malts, and Springbank a "Premier Cru"...dixit Michael Jackson! Now If he may do that, surely we can to?

Otherwise, you are completely right!

P.!!! :wink:

Rolls Royce

The owning families reluctance to change anything, including direct firing of the stills. The insistence of improving mature cask quality. The introduction of new quality control throughout the process and maturation period- there is only one for me and that is Glenfiddich and their entire range. Not killed by sherry or any other non-Speyside flavour, wonderful balance of flavour in each product - brilliant

Welcome Wandering Pict, pull up a high stool and get stuck in to the virtual pub that is the Whisky Magazine Forum.

Thanks for the Irish welcome. I have spent many a happy evening on your side of the water and a few of those at Midleton Distillery. It goes without saying that I have also managed to visit Bushmills and Cooley's as well
:lol:

That's more than I have and I live here. I'd love to visit Cooley now, even though it's not the prettiest of distilleries.

I've been to Midleton 3 times, Bushmills Twice, Bow Street Twice, Tullamore once and Kilbeggan more times that I care to remember but never had the chance to visit Cooley :( I would love that too Aidan it'd be very interesting.


By the way Kilbeggan has been White washed again ... it will be interesting to see how long it lasts.... before it's all black again
