Bruichladdich


An Islay malt with a tongue-twister of a name, Bruichladdich (pronounced broo-ich-laddie, with the 'ch' as in loch). Nice fruity flavour with the Islay smoke and peat.
Laddie Classic is a personal favourite.

Another Islay malt with arguably even more of a tongue-twister name! Bunnahabhain (pronounced boo-na-ha-vane). Smooth, smokey with a hint of treacle.

Your comments


"Glendronach 18-year old is a huge malt which rivals the greats. 100% sherry casks and at 18 years old - possibly the smoothest and fullest flavoured of anything you will ever taste. It's not easy to find nowadays - be prepared to pay at least £35, but it'll be money well spent. Totally kicks the butt of Macallan!"

Glengarioch


Probably the closest malt whisky distillery to the City of Aberdeen, Glengarioch is in Oldmeldrum, Aberdeenshire. The distillery was "mothballed" for some years but is now back producing excellent malt whisky.

Not so easy to find online, but worth the search.

Glenkinchie


Sometimes the peat flavour in Highland, island and Speyside malt whiskies can be a bit over-powering, especially for those who are newcomers to malt whisky. If you are not so keen on that element, try Glenkinchie, a Lowland single malt - it has the classic single malt flavour but without the pungent "peat reek".

Your comments
"The Glenglassaugh 1975 28 years old numbered malt is only available in Parkers, Low Street, Banf and is the best by a long way of the not-too-exciting 'Glassas'. It reminds me of sitting ont he beach betweenSandend and the distillery (now closed) when the surf's up and the smell of salt, grass, sand and something lemony hits the senses. This is not cheap, but play your cards right and Mr Parker will give you a taste."

Lagavulin


A personal favourite, Lagavulin (pronounced laga-voolin) is an Islay malt to graduate to. Robust flavour, quite smokey and pungent. Definite aftertaste of the sea, which laps the island distillery. Another personal favourite.

The Macallan


The Macallan is silky with a smooth aroma and a subtle sherry taste from maturation in sherry casks. Amazing that this outstanding Speyside whisky used only to be used to make blended whiskies! A personal favourite among Speyside malts.
