Visiting Scotland: Want Good, Hard-To-Find Whisky
I'm new to the forum and this is my first post.
I am visiting Scotland (from the USA) and am excited to taste some new whiskys and bring some home. To that end I have a few questions that I hope you can help me with.
To begin, I'll let you know a bit about my preferences. I love Islay whiskys, particularly Lagavulin, Caol Ila, and Laphroaig (Laphroaig is my favorite whisky for value. It's relatively inexpensive and very good for my taste. This is one I always have a bottle of at home.) I also like Talisker and have recently come to love The Glenrothes malts. Highland Park is great. I am not enamored with The Macallan or Glenfiddich as much as the others.
I am looking for some great whiskys that don't make it out of Scotland (or the UK, or Europe). I am interested in trying something new and different and I'd like to be able to bring something home for my friends that we can't get in the USA. Any recommendations?
Also, if you have any tips on getting a few cases home, I'd appreciate that as well.
Thanks, everyone. I look forward to reading your responses.
