- Glenfarclas 105 cask strength
- Glengoyne Twelve year old cask strength
- Laphroaig Ten ear old cask strength
- MacDonalds Glencoe Eight year old vatted malt

For cask strength whiskies I'd go for so independent bottlings

Dewar Rattray
Duncan Taylor
Wemyss
Adelphi
Bladnoch Forum (best value for money)
Cadenhead (I am rarely dissapointed with their bottlings)
Gordon and MacPhail (most not cask strength thou, but their cask strengths are good)

Thanks for pointing out Bladnoch - Just found a Cragganmore Sixteen year old cask strength offering over there.

I thought it worth mentioning that the old style Laphroaig "Cask Strength" was not actually cask strength but just bottled at a higher ABV

If we're throwing Laga 12 in there, then definitely Ardbeg Uigeadail should be in there as well!
