I haven't tried many of them, but of those that I have, the Mortlach 16 is my pick.

Not simple this because there are multiple batches of many of these. I vote Rosebank for sheer consistency.

From my limited experience, (I've tried, I think) 9 of them I'd have to say the Mortlach. It's one of my regular drams. That said the Rosebank is a favourite too and I enjoy the Linkwood when the mood strikes me.

Only one I remeber definitely not liking was the Dufftown.

Actually me three! Though I do have to acredit the Mortlach 16 F&F for making me the Mortlach fan I am today.


Cheers!

And I thought George Bush was reason enough not to want to be in the US :twisted:
You're missing some great whiskies. Mortlach 16 is a good whisky, but not among my choices (it'll probably win anyway). My personal favourite must be Teaninich - a very underrated dram. The main problem I find with it is the bottles don't seem to last long :wink:
Many other underrated whiskies in the FF range - Glendullan, Glen Lossie, Inchgower, and if you can still find it Bladnoch.

I'm with Willie on this, the Rosebank has always been good and I think it's the best of the line.

Even of the countries I've been to around the world that include Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the U.K. and Western Europe, I'm quite happy that I live right here in the USA.


Cheers anyway~ :wink:

It would have been really nice to be able to see how this vote is going. I can't vote as I really haven't had any of the F&F range as it is not available out in So Cal.

I'm interested in tasting several of these especially something like the Aultmore.

feel for him/her

I believe he's "him" LSD - I'm sure he's mentioned his wife in the past.

Yeah, but one of my kids' schoolteachers talks about his husband so you can't be sure Nick. Spect you're right though.

Rosebank . One of my favourite drams of the last few years , now down to my last 2 bottles.If you see it well worth buying although the price has been going up lately.

What are the thoughts on the Auchroisk, Glen Spey and Strathmill?

As I don't know all of them, I voted Mortlach 16.
