First, thanks for your answers.
I hope other people will participate.
In fact, i've been a Single malt addict since 2 years only.
My own "preference" goes towards the Islay malts.
I enjoy a lot Bowmore 12 y.o. and 15 y.o.
I enjoy also (above all during a cold winter !) Lagavulin 16 y.o., Ardbeg 17 y.o. and Skye's Talisker.
I liked a little bit less Caol Ila 12 y.o., but it was a particular "bottler" (Mac Kullick), not the official one.
I would really like to taste the Bowmore 21 y.o. but in France it will cost me about 100 euros !... so i would like to be sure it is really that good.
I've never tasted Port Ellen, Clynelish, or Brora but i would really want it.
B.t.w., could someone tell me about its feeling for the :
- Port Ellen 22 y.o. - 1979 - 43° (about 100 euros)
- Brora 24 y.o. - 1977 - 56° - Rare Malts (about 87 euros)
I also like very well-rounded and greatly perfumed singles, as Macallan, Cragganmore, Highland Park...
What do you think of the Macallan 18 y.o. - 1984 - 43° (90 euros) ?
I enjoyed a lot the 12 y.o., and i would really like to taste this one, but i find it really expensive.
And, in all the associations i have tried with "habanos" (cognacs, rums, etc...), i am more and more sure that the best ones are with Single malt scotch whiskies, especially from the Islay.
