- Glenlivet 18 all gone, what next?
Bruichladdich Rocks is superb for the money. I’m just on with another Bruichladdich, ‘Peat Project’ that I brought back from Islay in June, lovely. Jura Superstition you can’t go wrong with I reckon.
All a matter of taste though innit? Like, I hate cucumber, but lots of people love it.
I think my fave is Bunnahabhain 12 yr old, IMO it’s just what whisky should taste like.Posted 4 years agosomafunkSubscriber
Try a fettercairn or auchentoshan, both on offer in our local tescos so maybe in yours as well, as you mention near to the taste of a glenlivet then any speyside whisky will satisfy the tastebuds, if you want something special that is worth paying for then a Balvenie Doublewood, lovely caramel thick n’ bold flavour with a hint of sweet fruit, i’ve converted non-whisky drinkers with this nectar.Posted 4 years agomessiahMember
Glenlivet 18 is a cracker and a tough act to follow. If you like the sherry finish Speyside style try Aberlour 16 or Glenfarclas 15 which are both fantastic, or spend a little more for an even older version of these two. Glenfarclas 21 is amazing and a bargain for you don’t see many 21’s for that price.Posted 4 years agobeagleMember
I’ve been up on the highlands/islands recently. Took an unopened bottle of Benromach 10. Not much came back! It’s a speysider, finished in a sherry cask, from a pretty small distillery. Incredibly drinkable, reasonably priced and tastes pretty sophisticated for its age. Quite hard to find but booths are stocking it, or you’d get in on line for under/around £30.
Not my usual style of dram, but one ill be buying again for sure!Posted 4 years agoRusty SpannerSubscriber
Thought the Fettercairn Fasque was a waste of cash.
Bland & slightly unpleasant.
Trying the Auchentoshan Classic at the mo but underwhelmed, a bit insipid.
The Old Pulteney which is usually on sale at Tesco is genuinely lovely, very fresh tasting.Posted 4 years ago
Abelour and Highland park for me at the mo though. Seem to be the ones the rest of the family like too.crashtestmonkeyMember
Easy drinking, but not bland. Bags of character.
I like different types of whiskey, but Dalwhinnie seems to get drunk the quickest 😀 Had a bottle of anCnoc for Xmas too, light and “easy drinking” like Dalwhinnie and also seemed to get finished in double-quick time.Posted 4 years agodan86Member
Dalmore Cigar reserve 😉 Balvenie doublewood is another nice one on the sherried side so your wife would probably like it! Have you ever shopped on loch fyne whiskies? they have a taste table , each bottle has its own reference to the table so you can roughly work out the style of each dram!Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
Recently finished a bottle of Edradour cask strength. Most definitely a sipping whisky. I don’t usually add water these days but this one needed it. Very, very highly recommended. At the wedding I shot today, one of the guests was telling me about his job at the Scapa distillery. He made the whisky sound like liquid gold. Apparently very smooth, to the point of having no burn. Just for the other end of the scale.Posted 4 years ago

How does Monkey Shoulder compare to any of the above?
In particular the Jura’s?

It’s a blend of 3 malts. Less honeyed, slightly fuller and fruitier is how I would describe it. If you like Jura original there is a very good chance you will like monkeys shoulder.Posted 4 years ago
