For me, it's a mixed bag on the younger ones. I had a 8-yr old Caol Ila one time that was was one of my favorite whiskeys of all time, yet I had a 10-yr Ardbeg a few weeks ago and found it to be too harsh - - - - and I like all of the other Arbeg's!

You're definitely not going to like these then (left to right)!

First Christmas present. I know people say you are paying for the name but if anyone can point me towards a smoother scotch feel free.

Funny story, a few years ago I bought a large cube mold and a few new Speigelau or Reidel glasses and the cubes were about 2mm bigger than the glass opening. Fancy fail.

Interesting you say that. My good friend just recommended the 16, because that's the only one available.

The 16 is great, and easy to find. The 8 is just a really cool, limited run with a little more upfront bite and burn that I really like for its more aggressive approach. But you can't go wrong with either.

Certainly the easiest approach. I like a splash of water, but in Texas summers, a really big ice cube that won't dilute things too fast extends whisk(e)y season for me.
