1/10
Johnnie Walker Black Label
Perfectly rounded, deep and full, this is the blended Scotch most admired by blenders. If I had to take only one whisky to a desert island, it would probably be this one.
40 per cent ABV

Lagavulin 16 Year Old
The prince of the Islay malts, this is deep and dark, with notes of fruitcake and sweet seaweed. A voluptuous texture and a fragrant, smoky finish. For drinking with poetry, late into the night.
43 per cent ABV

The Glenrothes 1985

Old Pulteney 12 Year Old
An elegant malt from Wick in the far north of Scotland, this has a lightly "maritime" character and goes well with fish and seafood. The distinctive bottle features a traditional Wick herring drifter.

Clynelish 14 Year Old
A North Highland malt, from the coast of Sutherland. Fresh and heathery, with waxy notes reminiscent of a High Church. Drink from the deep freeze in chilled glasses with dessert ? you will be amazed! 46 per cent ABV

Auchentoshan 18 Year Old

Bailie Nicol Jarvie
An entirely different creature ? light in style, clean and zesty. Easy to drink, this is a blended whisky from the Glenmorangie distillery in the Highlands, named after a character in Walter Scott's novel, 'Rob Roy'.

Talisker 10 Year Old
From the Isle of Skye, this is THE malt to accompany haggis (and many other dishes). Sweet and lightly smoky, but watch out for the chilli-pepper hit in the finish. Robert Louis Stevenson regarded Talisker as "the king of drinks".
45.8 per cent ABV

Find a picture on the internet  if the picture is part of an article, run your mouse pointer on the picture right click the mouse pointer over the picture or image and the box displays on your screen click the view image, the image then appears in its own web page, go to the address bar and cut using mouse the web address. Now go to the covers post. in that post either print  symbol like # or o or simply type link. once you have typed a sybol or typed link highlight it with mouse, then click the link near the smily face above the dialogue box, a new box appears, paste the web address in that new box and click ok, your link is then highlighted and click submit your post.

Talisker is my favorite! Pair that with a Monte Christo #2, and I'm pretty sure you'll have an enjoyable evening at home on the deck..........

Lagavulin is also very good, IMHO.

But for an affordable single malt, you cannot go wrong with Bowmore. Very nice. If you can get Bowmore Claret, even better. This is Scotch aged in a Bordeaux wine cask, and imparts a slight wine flavor, that has to be imbibed to be believed. Just amazing.

Stay thirsty.................
