    Foreign Whisky of the Month - July 2013 , POLL

    Yeah, that is right, this month we are going to do a poll to decide which whisky is the Foreign Whisky of the Month. Everyone can be involved a little, and I am not sure yet but may always carry over the 2 not chosen into the following poll which may or may not be the next month.

    The poll will run for 4 or 5 days, give or a take a week .... .

    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month - July POLL

    I do plan to try to make the polls hit on different styles, with at least one being on the less expensive side to get an entry level bottle. HP 12 seems pretty reasonable in most places, and of course their expressions go far and wide from there.

    I voted for Highland Park but could've easily voted for either of the other two.

    I voted for Springbank as I've never had the pleasure.

    Highland Park in a no-brainer. To me it perfectly combines flavors from all Scottish regions into one superbly complex malt.

    Foreign Whisky of the Month - July 2013 , POLL

    By Springbank are we talking the distillery or the expressions? I have more Longrows open than any other scotch at the moment, so that would work well for me, but that's likely to be the case in the future as well. I actually have a bottle of Talisker DE open right now too, my first bottle. I haven't revisited HP for a few years, so maybe it's time. Only problem is I prefer my malt at CS and NCF, which is not likely with HP.

    Yeah, so I'll be happy enough with any of these, and all of them eventually.

    Like the rest of you, I could've been happy with any of the choice but I chose SpringBank (includes Longrow/Hazelburn?)

    Same here.
    Any of the 3 would be a good choice but the HP offers something for everyone - from the beginner (12yo), to the whisky nerd (18-25 year range plus "limited" releases) to the uber rich (30+ years).

    Re: Foreign Whisky of the Month - July POLL

    I had thought when picking Springbank that it would be just that and not Longrow. I'd kind of like to play it that way because planned to throw Longrow in the mix later, but could be swayed. We'll decide it if it wins.
