    I'm well aware of all of this. You are missing the point of my post completely. I explained in detail the point in an above post. I will re-iterate. In Scotland you can make Scotch. Scotch has to be made a certain way by law. Bourbon comes from the USA, bourbon also has a strict way it must be made. Whisky(ey) from other places around the world may or may not have rules/laws for their whiskey, so they have more freedom to try different things. This is why I excluded categories as I did.


    Ah, gotcha. Ok. Thanks for clarifying that for me. You've got me curious now. I'm going to do a search on that very topic. Interesting point.

    Nikka Taketsuru 17 year old is my true love. Better than many single malt whisky. Very smooth. Espresso... and love that smoky after taste... yummy...

    Haven't cracked open my bottle of the 17 year old yet, but tried the 12 year old (nice, but not outstanding) and the 21 year old (one of my favourites).
    Looking forward to try Taketsuru 17 then... :wink:

    I am just the other way round of your experience. Having my third bottle of the 17 and have not opened my 12 yet. How I wish I can taste or own a bottle of the 21 as the price of 21 has skyrocketed to around USD1000 here...

    I think the Kavalan's kick your butts - I bought my friend a bottle of Solist Sherry for his birthday and it's an amazing sherry bomb!

    Yamazaki 12 is a great pick too, no need to spend a ton of money on the 18 yo.

    Same with the Hibiki - I think the 12 and 17 yo are great.

    Surprisingly good was the Guglhof TauernRogg from Austria if you can find it:



    Has anyone tried the Mackmyra from Sweden? I hear they are solid.

    Cheers

    I've tried one once. I'd say "solid" is a pretty fitting description.

    I was in Australia last week and had a chance to try Nant Whisky. It was very nice! And what was even better was the chance to do a flight of it with three different finishes: one was finished in sherry barrels, one in port barrels and one in bourbon barrels. I had no idea that the finish would make THAT much of a difference in the final product. The sherry finish was my favorite of the three, but each had some interesting things going on.
