Aberlour a'bunadh is fantastic, got a bottle of batch 25 from waitrose at brent cross. The only bad thing is that it cost rrp at £31, it was at £23 during the Christmas period - tried my best to get it at that price but was sold out everywhere.
My dad got me a bottle of Talisker 10 from the duty free - I liken it to alcoholic cod liver oil
. He's in Jordan at the moment and i asked him to get me a bottle of Macallan 12 if he can find it as it is a duty free whiskey. And next on my wish list is Macallan 18.
I think i'll stay away form the islay malts and stick to the spey's at the moment.
