I can't remember if I actually nominated any of these, but I have gone for Ben Nevis, Bunnahabhain and Glenfarclas. It could easily have been others though.

Votes seem very well spread so far.

I had voted for Bowmore, Bruichladdich and Glenfarclas, but I'm happy with many of these choices.

I voted Ben Nevis, Bunny, and Laphroaig because those (along with Talisker) are the only ones on the list that I actually have at the moment. :D

I always look at the monthly tasting as an opportunity. What's that you say, an opportunity? Yes. I generally want to try something new to me when we do a tasting. Maybe that requires getting a bottle or trading out some samples. I also like to have something that I am familiar with to see how it compares to the view points of others.

I have no Ben Nevis nor any Bunnie right now but if that makes the list, I will definitely go about getting some from somewhere.

I agree, Ganga, and I should have specified that I have unopened bottles of my choices that I'm quite looking forward to tasting for the first time! :D

I know I didn't make any nominations for January's tasting but whoever nominated Talisker I tip my hat to. :thumbsup:

Cheers!

Really hard to see what will win here. Might be really hard to get three for the final. Come on folks get your votes in.

Talisker because I have several and it would be good to compare them
Ben Nevis because we never here of it and it's really rather good


Exactly Nick, as far as Ben Nevis, I've never even seen a bottle, let alone tried it. So that would be an interesting one to me, I guess I should have voted for it. :oops:

You know, I really don't care which one it is. Ok, Littlemill is probably a tough sell. :shock:
