My First, Glenlivet 12 yo, My Second, ?
I recently decided to start tasting single malt scotch and, after some research, bought a Glenlivet 12 yo and enjoyed it.
The Glenlivet 12 yo was what you could call on the fruity floral side of tastes and for my second I was looking for something different.
I decided I wanted to try a scotch with a peaty taste and therefore started looking into the Islay region. I am limited by the local availability of single malt scotch.
The three I have chosen as 'finalists':
Highland Park 12 yo
Bunnahabain 12 yo
Laphroaig 10 yo
I am looking for some guidance here and was wondering if anyone had a preference or could help me make a final decision.
If there is another suggestion below I have listed the other single malt scotch that is available to me. Older malts from each distillery are available but out of my current price range.
Balvenie, The 12
Dalmore, The 12
