can I suggest we try to remember to come back to this question in a year's time? It could be interesting.

ARDBEG. It has higher highs and lower lows, but Laphroaig is more consistent

Glenlivet 21 YO Archive

Abraham Bowman 10 YO Rye 69.4%

Tequila

Rye, Scottish MALT, bourbon & Irish tied, last, that 92% of SCOTCH which is blended with wheat and corn whiskies. If I had to put it by volume of production SCOTCH WHISKY would come in DEAD LAST.

Whisky. Wine? You have GOT to be kidding.

Bruichladdich. Way more variety than Highland Park.

Hangovers? Haven't had one for about 30 years.

Wiser's Legacy

Booker Noe. Living whisky personality? @MaltActivist !!!

1) Ardbeg 2) Balvenie 3) Buffalo Trace 4) not sure 5) Bourbon, Scotch, rye, Irish 6) whisky 7) Highland Park - only because Bruichladdich seems to be 're-inventing' themselves courtesy of the distillery changing hands so often. 8) Water (or Gatorade), a few Aleve, and sleep. 9) Monkey Shoulder 10) Ralfy
