    I would give a very strong recommendation for Highland Park 18.
    That dram will keep changing even sitting in the glass. Massive complexity and just a complete treat.

    For the bourbon drinkers, I highly recommend Russell's Reserve Single Barrel overproof by Wild Turkey. I get it for about $40 locally and it is a stand out performer with broad appeal, just don't water it down too much.

    The Glenlossie is very nice, with lots of character.

    Of the easy-to-find varieties, I like the Balvenie Doublewood. The Macallan is nice, especially the older ones, but I think over-priced.

    Cheers,
    Jeff.

    Yes, sir. I just scored a bottle of this year’s George Stagg from the Antique Collection. It’s been a few years since I’ve had a bottle, and it’s great as always.

    That Stagg is ridiculous. Barrel proof or close to it, right? The Stagg Jr is ok but nonce you've had the real thing theres no replacement.

    If I had my way there'd be nothing but cask strength/barrel proof.

    Yep, totally barrel-proof, and really high even compared to other barrel-proof whiskies. This year’s edition clocks in at 129.2 proof. I haven’t had the Stagg Jr., but I’ve always heard the same thing that once you have the real thing it doesn’t compare.
