Hi I'm pretty new to whisky was more of a brandy drinker but have recently become interested in the barley as well. Not tried a lot yet but working my way through a few miniatures at the moment just to get a feel of the different malts out there. Quite like a lot of the Speyside whiskies so far and will definitely take a nip of Laphroaig next time I have a cold Laughing So far no bad whiskies but I read on one of your posts that I may eventually find the odd one. Sad

Hi Tim, Welcome to the Whiskyroom!!!!! Beer Beer Beer

I wouldn't worry too much about coming across a bad whisky - they are pretty rare thankfully!!!!!

Just steer clear of Drumgish, & 12 yr old Fettercairn, & you'll be fine!! Very Happy

Glenfiddich 18yr old is a corking whisky, as is 10 yr old Talisker (Currently on offer for 20 at tesco!! Beer ).

But if you want a dram to really blow your socks off it's gotta be an Ardbeg any day!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome Tim, if you fancy something on the softer but firm side try Glen Grant 10 year old.

I also would not bother with cardhu as it is a vatted malt now and not the best but i would agree with the rest, i would also try the talisker 18yo, around 36 from oddbins, a whole new dimension to the talisker family, a bit more expensive but worth the money:beer
