You didn't steer me wrong with Longmorn 15, so I'm posting my next dilemma. I'm going to be travelling to Denver in September and the prices are significantly better at Davidsons Liquor store than here in Canada. With these choices I will save between $25 and $40 per bottle including exchange. (Of course I can only bring one bottle back, I'll just have to drink the other or find a mule
In order of preference, here is what I own or have tried:
HP18 - owned - I love it - smoke is great
Lagavulin 16 - Tasted - Incredible!
Longmorn 15 - Owned - Sweet, gentle, clean
Red Breast - Empty - My favorite Irish
Glenfiddich - owned - Not very good...
Dunwhinnie 15 - tasted - Possibly a bad bottle - or a victim of evaporation/oxi?
owned - Balvenie 12 Double Wood - Haven't cracked it yet - waiting until I see my brother in law who is on leave from Afghanistan.
So, what would you do in my situation? Do you like one of these more than the rest? I need an Islay for my cupboard, but I am really leaning to simply picking up another bottle of HP18 or maybe one of the others.
I will be picking up 2 bottles - so if there are 2 that you think would nicely contrast that would be ideal!
