    It is merely serendipity that The Scottish Whiskey Association record double digit profit increases from Brasil since I emigrated there;
    . . . . no caushality whatshoever.

    Scotch Whisky has become more and more a sin of mine...

    My little treasure by personal taste (besides other non-scottish ones):

    1. Glenlivet 12y. (by far)
    2. Highland Park 12y
    3. Pulteney 12y
    4. Glenfiddich 12y

    Next ones to target for my collection:
    -Ardberg 12y
    -Laphroaig 12y
    -Lagavulin 12y (already tasted)
    -Cardhu 12y (already tasted)

    Try a Glenmorangie (Scottish, 3 or 4 versions, priced accordingly).
    It is has a very 'rounded' taste and a nose with a hint of orange;
    a single malt, light but with the characteristic of a liqueur.

    Hi Geoff,

    eventhough dominating orange ist not one of the scents I prefer in Whysky, I will give it a try. Thanks for the hint!
