    Whats the best single Malt / Bourbon/ Irish/ etc

    Glen Moray is smooth as fook
    Talisker has a loverly taste ...in fact only one I didn't like so far was Lafroagh of something similar sounding......

    Laphroaig? is that the one you mean?

    At the moment i have a bottle of glenfiddich 15 year which is perfectly adequate, but not that exciting, and a bottle of benromach 10 year which is really really nice.

    Riisu is pretty big on his whisky as i recall, would be interestnig to hear his suggestions

    I have a bottle of Laphroaig at the minute. Don't mind it actually. Glenmorangie is alright too.

    Islay: Talisker, Lagavullin.
    Tradi: Glenfiddish 15. Matured in sherry cask. Pretty interesting.

    After the traditional islay, my best mention would go to Highland Park (18). Just awesome. Bit expensive i admit but it definitely worth it.

    Would be interested in a great bourbon if somebody can help me choose.

    not a great fan myself, but it is classed as a whiskey so figured it was appropriate to include

    a step up on price would be Elijah Craig , a decent Woodfords & Eagle Rare , ... eagle my bosses mrs let me try, elijah craig my cousin bought my bro, its expensive but nice ... and woodfords you can find in some places, but theres a shit version and good one , similar to the difference in the basic Hennesey , and the step up .. same as makers mark acutally, in spoons you'll find the bottle with the red wax on right , but you can get silver and gold and others i think ... not sure ..

    also Laphroig i like , very pety , almost tastes like pcp , but with one ice cube and a game of poker you fell well porn.

    dont know much bout others, decent glenfid , jamesons , the ballvenie ... but these are all run of the mills ..

    theres an old spirit shop near my work, that sells all kinds of rare bottles n spirits ...

    this is the one ..

    http://www.ahadleigh-wine.com/

    got some nice Brandys from there when ive had a cheeky 50-60 to spend ... but they go up to like 200-400 a bottle, and some 2 grand bottles of wine in there etc .

    hahah tcp i means
