Super strong flavoured whiskeys?
I am finding myself more and more attracted to heavy strong whiskeys. I've always liked Lapfroig, Lagavulin, and Coal Illa, but am desiring even bigger flavors. I've also found my old favorites have started tasting a little too sweet for me as well, especially when they've been aged longer. I've reciently found a new love, Ballechin #2 (The Maderia cask) by Edradour, and have scoured up several of the last remaining of the 6000 bottles ever produced that are here in the USA. It has a huge pungent peat & medicinal flavor with heavy tar notes, a 46% alcohol content that burns your tounge, and a super dry earthy finish that tastes like dirt. It is the perfect whisky! BIG, BIG, BIG! I've purchaced a bottle of Aberlour Abundah (59.5%) and enjoy the burn of the cask strength higher alchohol as well.
Does anyone have any other sugestions of super strong whiskeys you've tried that you think I might enjoy?
