As a malt I am currently loving Penderyn Sherrywood from Wales. As far as Bourbon goes I am a big fan of Woodford Reserve. Bourbon neat with three cubes of ice and the malt with a tiny bit of water.

I don't get this drinking neat thing

Water releases the phenolic compounds which greatly improves the flavour of the spirit, plus drinking at a minimum of 40% is asking a hell of a lot from your taste buds and olfactory glands.


well its all about opinions however I totally disagree - tastes better neat for me and after all, that's all that really matters.

Scapa is indeed very fine. To many good ones out there to narrow down really but some ones worth a try IMHO Glenfarclas, Cragganmore, Ladyburn, Lagavulin, Bunnahabhain and springbank.

Old Puteney a particular favourite, good if you live by the sea and a taste of my heritage, Oh and the water thing I go with the Doctor's opinion in Whiskey Galore "it's not the uisgi that will kill you, that'd be the water''
