Default 10 - 12 year old Scotch

Name your preferred 10 - 12yo scotch, single malt or blended.
Glenmorangie Original is one my preferred. Recently gifted a Glenfiddich 12 and can't wait to enjoy with a fine stick.

For some reason I keep going back to Macallan 12 Single Malt. Great for the price. As far as blended I like Chivas 18 yr

There are other more expensive 12 yr olds, but Chivas 12 year is my everyday. Prices are very reasonable - I just paid $19.70/750 ml (out the door, no tax, AAFES price). That was the case price so I'm stocked up for awhile. It's the scotch I cut my teeth on and was my old man's whiskey. 18 yr old is better, but I couldn't resist the $19.70 price tag.

Default Re: 10 - 12 year old Scotch

Well, I dig the Islay's so if I have to choose a 10-12 yr. easily available scotch...

1. Laphroaig 10
2. Ardbeg 10
3. Caol Ila 12

But for a step up I go to Lagavulin 16 or Ardbeg Uigeadail. Both yummy.

For a slight change of pace, I reach for Highland Park 12 or 15. Considered an "Islands" scotch and fantastic.

For a bigger change and moving to a Speyside, I go with Aberlour 12 or 16 or Balvenie 12 or 17 Double wood.

Default Re: 10 - 12 year old Scotch

So if we are talking only 10-12 year old and no No Age Statement whiskys I'd go with:

Ardbeg 10
BenRiach 10 Curiositas, $50
Bruichladdich 10
Lagavulin 12
Laphroaig 10 Cask Strength (skip the regular 10 year)
Springbank 10
Sprinbank 12 Cask Strength

For blends I've been liking Black Bottle 10 yr (not the NAS bottle). It has been discontinued for some time but can still be found

I'd settle for this one if I had to pick one 10-12yr bottling.

I would have picked Bruichladdich 10 but the coming price hikes on this means it will no longer be an option.

I think all this talk of Balvinie double wood is highly over rated, there is no such thing...

After all we don't want to start a rush on this below average Scotch..

I mean it isn't that good now...
















Ok I lied this stuff is great, my wife and I finished off a whole bottle in a week, I know we are weak, but it looked so, so nice just sitting there in our liqueur cabinet, couldn't believe we finished off a bottle in less then seven days. Good news though, we have one more left! Happy spirits all! FWIW, I'm having a Glenfiddich 12 year old tonight.
