Top 3 Whiskies…

Please take into account that these are my personal tasting notes and personal experience, as such you may interpret this whisky very differently from me.

It’s been a whole year since I started this blog and in that time it’s undergone a few design changes. With a total of 54 tasting notes now published along with a few other articles my tasting notes have certainly improved in that time and my whisky collection has grown considerably.

To mark 1 year of whisky blogging I’ve decided to list my top 3 whiskies that I’ve blogged about in that time. These are my personal choices so they might not appeal to everyone but if you’ve not tried them before then consider these firm recommendations 😉


Lagavulin 16 year.

One I’d been meaning to try for sometime ever since watching Nick Offerman’s My Tales of Whisky (well worth a watch if you have a spare moment). I’d also had many a recommendation for this particular dram – which can often be a bad thing as it gives you a preconceived notion of what it will be like and if it doesn’t meet your expectations then you’ll be even more disappointed! I had nothing to fear with this though and as soon as I gave it a go it shot to the top of my favourite whiskies list.


Highland Park 12 year.

HP 1

Highland Park 12 year has been top of my whisky list for many years, only recently being supplanted by Lagavulin 16 year. As the first whisky which truly spark my love affair with the water of life it will always hold a special place in my heart.


The Balvenie Caribbean Cask 14 year.

Balvenie 14yr

Out of all the Balvenie’s I’ve tried this is my favourite by far. The time spent in rum casks adds an extra dimension to the whisky which I found made it irresistible!


Honorable Mentions.

Teeling Small Batch Irish Whiskey.

Dalmore 15 Year.

GlenDronach 33 year.

    Ye cannae beat Lagavulin. It was the Distillers Edition which made me sit up and take whisky seriously.

    1. Agreed! It’s my go-to dram atm. I have a sample of the Distillers Edition to try but it’s part of a blind tasting set from another blogger and I haven’t had the time to try all 3 samples together to guess which is which.
