Single malts that have been long term residents of my bar have been Laphroaig 10, Aberlour 10 and Aberlour a'bunadh in the form of various batches.

My list is short but here it is:

Canadian Whiskies: Canadian Club
Crown Royal

Single Malt: Glenfiddich Special Reserve
Dalwhinnie 15


My new SM acquaintances will need to go along way to match the 35 year relationship with the Canadians or even the above SM stalwarts.

Hmmm...the two distilleries I drink the most whisky from are Bushmills and Highland park. Just on Scotch, I have a definite preference for Northern Highland distilleries. But to actually answer the question, to date I've probably drunk these ones the most:

Bushmills 10
Bushmills 12
Bushmills 16
Highland Park 12
Jameson
Laphroaig 10 (though rarely drink this any more, much prefer other whiskies)

I'm drinking more Connemara these days, and Dalmore 12, HP 18 (love this one), Clynelish 14, Bowmore 17 (Bowmore is my fav Islay dist), Glen Ord 15, Glenmorangie 10, Strathisla 12, Longmorn 15, and SMWS Ardmores

There's a lot of people drinking a lot of HP 18. It's not cheap you know!
Mind you I do have one on the go a the moment. :D

Well, definitely the Ardbeg Ten, my first love! It's why I'm sitting here writing this. And Ardbeg in general. In fact, I'm drinking the Very Young as we speak! Golly, that's damn good stuff!

I haven't been at this long enough, so here's my top 3...

Macallan 18 (wide margin)
HP Bicentenary
Springbank 32 (this one started me on this journey..! :shock: :D )

After that, it comes down to a mix of Lagavulin 16 and DE, Bowmore 17, and the various wood finished Glenmorangies. You could probably toss in the A'bunadh too.

In order:

Bowmore Legend
Johnnie Walker Red
Laphroaig 10yr
Laphroaig Quarter Cask
Ardbeg 10yr

Unfortunately, I live in Washington State which has a government monopoly on liquor sales. Accordingly, you can only purchase what is on the "Master List" which only carries about 30-40 single malts (and only 3 Islays) :x . The Laphroaig QC and Ardbeg are not on the list, so I have to smuggle them in from time to time when I visit my family in California. :twisted:

Judging from the website (which nicely lists inventory for individual stores), store managers are able to get items not on the master list (in Oregon that's verbotten). It seems the Seattle area stores take advantage of this the most (ie Talisker 18 for $62), although Vancouver occaisionally has something unique (which is why I keep an eye on the site).

Really!? I was told by my local store clerk that they can order stock they don't carry from other stores in Washington, but that they cannot order anything that's not on the state's Master List. They said that if I wanted something else, I could fill out a "Suggestion Card" but to not hold out much hope. I'll have to press them further for the exact regulations.

Maybe that's it, but the master list is then more extensive than what any one store carrys. So maybe you could get your local to pillage other stores.

At the moment the list could be:

Laphroaig 10 yo
Glenfarclas 12 yo
Dalmore 12 yo
Lagavulin 16 yo
Talisker 10 yo

but it could be different next year.
