Fantastic Classic Speyside Whisky! Hard to go wrong with this Whisky, and should be in everyone’s collection. Well balanced , rich creamy and maybe only thing better then sipping it, is nosing the empty glass for hours.

Aberlour distillery also has one the bet tours in all of Scotland if you find your way on that side of the pond.

The closet dram you’ll ever get to perfection regardless of price.
This is amazing Whisky in every way and Glenmorangie will be the #1 selling Single Malt in 5 years or less. Quality! Quality! Quality!

This is the Whisky that all others should be judged. My hat goes off to Glenmorangie for perhaps creating the perfect Whisky.

The perfect balance between, coastal influence, peat, and maturation.
This distillery is one of the best in all of Scotland and the 18, 25 is even better.

The Whisky which all sherry drams are judged. I still remember the days when this was $75 dollars on the shelf. Nice balance between age, wood and distillery characteristic
