I've acquired a batch 38 recently so should give it a try. Maybe the cut is going a little too wide if there are Sulphur notes showing up. I'm also looking forward to trying a newer batch of Edradour, which I always used to enjoy ... I hear the soapiness is gone in the product, which would signify to me that the cut is shorter again. The Signatory CS Edradour was always a sweet whisky for me and I see Edradour has an OB CS one the market now.
I must find one.

Deanston is always enjoyable with some sweetness; the Spanish Oak was excellent but that's now dried up. Not managed to try the Toasted oak new batch yet but the first one was pretty popular.

Apart from that wine casks do up the sweetness. The Longrow Shiraz cask for instance is sweet with a long dry finish and an interesting experience. Couldn't drink too many of those in a night though.

I don't have a problem with more austere, dry whiskies like some Ardbeg, much Lagavulin, and nearly all Clynelish, but sweetness is a great property of whisky -- especially as an after dinner drink.

Most whiskies are sweet, but the ones that stick out in my mind as having maximum potential for sweet deliciousness are Macallan (nutty caramel brown sugar notes), Springbank (tropical fruits), Bowmore (candied fruits or maybe fruity candies), and Highland Park/Oban (orange marmalade).

My favorite is Talisker 10 years old. Type Single Malt. It's very good.

Amrut Single Malt Whisky was highly rated by noted critic Jim Murray, and is a must try for whisky enthusiasts. I love to drink this whisky.
