Alternatives to Bunnahabhain 12...
First of all, don't tell me the 18!!!
I have a business friend who loves Bunnahabhain 12 and we are traveling g to Florida together. I wanted to bring an alternative that he would like as well as one I haven't had before. He hates smoke, and has only tried the Aberlour 12. He thought it was okay, but not as good as the Bunna. I'm guessing he wants more impact and alcohol. So my question is: do you know of a scotch that is similar to the bunnahabhain 12 year?
I was thinking of the Edradour 12, Edradour 10 yr from signatory vintage (I've already had this, but it's sooooo good), Jura 16, Balvenie 17 doublewood (might be too expensive), or glanfarclas 15.
Any other suggestions...?
