Easy enough question. What are your top 5 world distilleries or brands of malt( say you like chivas for example) Min would be in no paricullar order. 1. Highland park ( introduced me to more complex flavours and in my opinion produced some of the most consistent high quality malts) I've never had one I'd score below a 80. 2. Glenmorangie. They really know how to use wood in creative ways and their 10/18 year old malts are wonderful even without fancy finishes. 3. Lagavullin. Prince of islay4. Woodford reserve. The best bourbon money can buy. 5. Glen Breton glenora distillieries. A speysider from Canada. Wonderful at about 15 years. They also do a magnificent ice wine finish. The 15 year old ice wine finish may be my favorite malt.... Now if only I could get a second bottle.
Hmmm...I would say:1. Ardbeg 2. Macallan3. Lagavulin4. Edradour(just recently)5. Aberlour(just recently)

You have incredibly elusive tastes. To be honest I'm a little jealous. I've never sampled those last three. I want to though.
Even though I like quite a lot of "special" whisky like some Lochsides, Port Ellens or especially St.Magdalenes and Dallas Dhu, I'd rather name some "regular" distilleries as my favourites:Blair AtholCaol IlaGlen Grant / Caperdonich (can't really decide :rollGlen MorayScapaNot necessarily in that order... but I really like the malts these distilleries produce - not every bottling is brilliant, but in the end I always have good times with their stuff!
It's THE peaty malt for me. Perfect smokiness and sweetness. The Corryvreckan is my favorite of the whiskies I've got at home regularly. What a force of nature...2. TaliskerAs ASWhisky has put it: always the right decision. Nice, but not overpowering peat and lots of spice. The best whisky I've tried up to now was the Talisker 1994 Manager's Choice.3. BenriachThey have such a diverse range, and almost all they do is at least good. I love the Solstice, but the wood finishes and the Fumosus series are nice, too.4. Springbank/LongrowI like the Springbank malts, but I love the heavily peated Longrow stuff. I definitely hve to try more of that.For number five I'd like to make a little prediction of the future: If Kilchoman continue doing such a great work, they're bound to make it on my list. Their malts are already very good, although they're still young. Definitely a distillery to watch.
It's pretty hard to decide on only five distilleries.
