I am really enjoying glenlivet nadurra 16 year cask strength. I'm interested in trying some 18 year.

I picked up a bottle of 18 year Laphroaig because I found it for an absurd low price. I know I will like it because I like Laphroaig, at least with BBQ or cigar because it is so smoky.

I've been told be several people the belvinie (sp) 18 is really really good.

Thoughts?

UPDATE

I went for the Belvinie 17 year double wood, but the liquor store had a sale on the Glenmorangie 18. The G18 was $23 cheaper, and when I read the info on it it says it was aged in both standard oak, and sherry casks. So it is exactly what I was looking for, which is an older quintas ruban. The store had only one left on the shelf. $92

"The Best" can only be found by diligent drunke...er, research, and is strictly a subjective thing.

Differing taste buds, etc.

So, get busy and report your results.

My favorite 18 YO distillery release is Talisker, but that can and does change often.

Talisker

The 25yo is spectacular too!
Link Posted: 6/27/2015 7:59:49 PM EDT
Lagavulin 18.

Heaven in a bottle.

I've never had their scotch. But I'd try it. Just would need a bunch of positive reviews before I would blindly buy a bottle. It is funny how completely unfounded mindsets affect us.

The Mac 18 is good, but overpriced IMO. Highland Park 18 is an excellent choice also. If youre budget conscious Glenlivet 18 can be had for around $75. Might help pin one down if you know what type of scotch you like?

I like the also like the 12yr Highland Park better.

Macallen 18 might not be the "best" but it for sure good stuff.

I like glenfiddich 18, won't break the bank and is sweet and bold with nice warmth. I'll take it over the livet any day. The 18 is wayy better than the 12.

Highland Park is good scotch. It's one of those "jack of all trades, but master of none" scotches.

I second this. It's a good, well-rounded Scotch, and easy to enjoy.

Oh my, I must try this. I love glenmorange quintas ruban which is a 12 year oak/sherry. A 17 year sounds outstanding.

Highland Park 18.

Glenlevit 18 is solid too.

Oban 18.

OP, forget the age. It's meaningless.

IMHO people who brag about age of scotch to other guys, don't know what they are talking about.

Some of the best scotches don't have an age listed on the bottle and many 18 year old scotches have been big let downs.

Leg it down to the liquor store and grab some Glenmorangie Lasanta for about $40. It's better than a lot of $100+ scotches.

That's actually surprisingly good, at least, the bottling that I had a couple of years back. Isn't that a blended scotch? Not that that matters all that much.

For the money?
The Glenlivet.

Money does not matter?
Hard to beat The Macallan.

For the price of Macallan 18 you can get Glenlivet 21 which kicks the shit out of Macallan 18.

My favorite 18 is Lagavulin although sometimes it's Talisker. Those two swap the top two spots regularly for me.

Laphroaig has been bumped off for its 3rd place over the last few years by one of my favorite value malts (when I can find it) - the 12 year old Tormore. I need Bevmo to get me in another case.
