Got back into whisky after a long break, got an Ardbeg 10yo, Lagavulin 16yo but pick of the bunch was a Cambeltown, Kilkerran 12yo. If you like salted caramel or butterscotch....apparently stocks are running out already, it's been so popular. Now I've decide I like Cambeltown, what would folks recommend next? Springbank 10 and Longrow Peated are on the list. For peated Islay type stuff, any other recommendations, Ardbeg Uig is on that list.
I've not tried corryvreckan, and it's been a while since I've had an Ardbeg 10, but wow, the Uigeadail was one of the best I've had. I remember being mildly underwhelmed on the first few tastings, perhaps too high expectations. But once I got into It, it was maybe the best I've had.That said....recent reviews seem to imply a steady downward trajectory of quality for the Uig, so maybe not? Your call. If you liked the 10, maybe just go with it.
Springbank is probably my favourite whisky
Master of Malt do taster sets that might be worth investigating?
First whisky-related post from me too. I've always avoided whisky since my first experience as a 17 year-old didn't end well...In April I was in Scotland and had a Talisker (I think 10 yr) which I was surprised to like quite a bit, later on that week I had a Balvenie (12 yr I think) which tasted awful and gave terrible flashbacks...If I wanted to get into whisky and try some more, what would be recommended given the above reactions?
