My 'most drunk' 5 are:

White & Mackay (everyday use)
Dalmore 12yr
Caol Ila 12
Royal Lochnagar 12
Longmorn 15yr

But this has more to do with availability and cost than favourites.

I think I will answer this by distillery, rather than individual expressions. Alphabetically:

Ardbeg (esp 10)
Balvenie (esp 15)
Bruichladdich (many different)
Glenrothes (maybe)
Lagavulin (but not so much lately)
Talisker (if not Glenrothes)

Did you get chance to try the 12, 15, or 18yr W&M at Whisky Live? They are a bit special - taking blending to new level!

Caol Ila 12
Laphroaig 10 C/S
Laphroaig 15
Macallan 12

So far it goes like this:

Laphroaig 10yo
Lagavulin 16yo
Balvenie Double Wood
Clynelish 14yo
Laphroaig CS

I have 11 open bottles right now (yeah, still wet behind the ears), and the only bottles I've had to replace are the Lagavulin 16 and the Laphroaig. That Clynelish 14yo bottle is fading fast though... :P

Not at all. I've been keeping an inventory since fairly early on, and now keep track of purchase date and place, price, opening date, and finishing date. The empties are still in the inventory, just sorted to the bottom. Just don't ask me for tasting notes!

Postby hpulley » Tue Mar 21, 2006 2:15 am

I thought this one would be easy but it is not, especially for exactly expressions.

1) Mystery Canadian, probably CC, in bar shots
2) Royal Reserve (yes, gut rot I know now)
3) Ardbeg 10yo
4) Ardbeg 17yo
5) Laphroaig 10yo

Then a big group tied at #6. DTC Glengarioch will be vaulting up there shortly.

Highest volume imbibed

Postby Muskrat Portage » Tue Mar 21, 2006 2:54 am

Okay... reeling back 30 years... analysing...
1. The Glenlivet 12 yo
2. The Edradour 10 yo
3. The Balvenie Founders' Reserve 10 yo
4. Haig & Haig Pinch (Dimple)
5. Laphroaig 10 yo
5. Oban 14 yo (Tied at number of bottles)

Drank a lot of Pinch in my youth :P , still have 1 1/2 bottles left.

This one is easy. In no particular order, my top 5 by volume consumed are as follows:

1. Talisker 10
2. Elijah Craig 12
3. Highland Park 12
4. Glenmorangie Port Wood Finish
5. Alberta Premium

I suspect I've had a lot more Alberta Premium and Elijah Craig than the others based on their relatively low cost.

Glenmorangie
Ardbeg
Laphroaig
Talisker
Highland Park
Nothing if not original!
Wish those Canadian lads would stop drinking all that Alberta Premium and force the company to export some. The unattainable is always so attractive.

At a guess, my list would include, in no particular order:

Claymore - the cheapest whisky when I was at college

Bushmills - available on flights between Belfast and London + drunk from a sense of local loyalty when I lived in Ireland + all my friends had it at home

Glenlivet 18 - freely available in British Midland Diamond Club lounges

Laphroaig - the malt I started drinking before I discovered the rest - hence I had several bottles

Who knows what the fifth would be. These days I get one off bottles and try something different when I've finished it.

I guess if we're including cheapies that were used for medicinal purposes at college Sainsbury's Bourbon and Northen Scott would be my top 2 !!

Looking only at SMWs, Probably the following for me:-
Ardbeg 10
Glenmorangie Port
Glenrothes 92
HP18 (just can't help myself when I get started 8) )
and Scapa 14 just sneaks in at the end.

Close contenders: - Balvenie 10 and 12, HP12 and 'fiddich solera

What 5 drunk most

Postby Green Manelishi » Thu Mar 23, 2006 6:18 pm

I began my search for my favorite whisky some time ago. I stopped searching when I encountered Islay.

I buy whatever bottling is available, of the following:

Laphroiag, Lagavulin, Ardbeg

The other Islay's are a bit too mild for my taste. My wife's favorite is Bunnahabhain.

With that said, when I am out I will try a single malt that I have not experienced. Through that I have found that I enjoy The MacAllan. Dalmore cigar malt was also to my liking.

But nothing beats an Islay.

Hard to tell... But here are five whiskies that almost always inhabit my shelves:

Lagavulin 16
Bunnahabhain 12
Balvenie Double Wood 12
Springbank 15
Highland Park 18

But there are a few more which could be candidates for these positions.

What five whiskys have you drunk the most.

Postby Danny » Fri Mar 24, 2006 3:59 am

Well counting the days when whisky was some thing to get drunk on and not having any appreciation beyound that some real Canadian stalwarts :D

Five Star :oops:
Royal Reserve :oops:
Seagrams 83 :wink:
Gibsons 18 year old :)

Maker's Mark
Wiser's Deluxe (10 y/o)
Crown Royal
Eagle Rare Single Barrel

The fifth one isn't a particular product, but my consumption of Buffalo Trace products as a whole far outpaces anything else.

Jameson
Jameson 1780
Greenspot
Johnnie Walker Black Label
Evan Williams Vintage bottlings (Currently 1995)

I guess i need to find a favorite single malt and stick with it. Wait a minute that would be boring. The list above is driven alot by the fact I live in the US (ussually) and Jameson and Johnnie Walker Black are ussually at every bar. The other two (greenspot) is absolutly fabulous and I've been drinking quite a bit of it lately and I've finished off a couple bottles of Evan Williams with my dad and have a 3rd started (Great Bourbon at a great price $26.00)
