Vote on which you think is the absolute best:
1.) Balvenie 21 Portwood
Truly an incredible whisky. Worth it's price tag of $180 or so. Hard to justify over $200.
2.) Glenfarclas 21
VERY good whisky. The 25 was also very good. However, I wouldn't pay more than $100, as the 17 is also very good, but the 15yr is the best of the bunch.
3.) glenfiddich 21
I don't like fiddich. Never tried the 21, as I didn't care for the 12, 15, or 18.
4.) glenfiddich 30
5.) glenlivet 25
6.) macallan 21 fine oak
Never tried these two.
7.) highland park 21
8.) highland park 25
9.) highland park 30 (hp 12 is my favorite btw)
The HP 25 is 'blow your mind' good. Never had the 30, but I sure would like to.
10.) Oban 18 distillers edition
11.) Yamazaki 18
Haven't had these.
Some less old for vote:
1.) Aberlour A'bunadh
Always in my cabinet. The best of its genre.
2.) Macallan French reserve
3.) macallan cask strength
A'Bunadh is better.
4.) Scapa 16
5.) glenrothes special reserve
6.) glenrothes 1994 (15 yr)
I love Glenrothes, but the 94 is thin. The select reserve is good, but not fantastic.
