    Glenfarclas 12 ($45)
    Glenfarclas 17 ($106)
    Glendronach 15 (96)
    Tomatin 18 ($55)

    They also have A'bunadh (batch 46) and Glenfarclas 105 CS, but I was afraid they would just repeat my Mac CS experience. Thoughts?
    Glendronach 15 Revival, A'Bunadh (I've had 42 & 43) and Glenfarclas 105 are great. I'd probably go for the Revival first. I also agree that MacAllan CS is uninteresting.

    Finally decided to take the plunge and picked up a Yamazaki 18 I have been eyeing for quite some time. I can't wait to try it and compare it to the 12.

    I love the Yamazaki 12. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts about the 18yr.

    I picked up a bottle of Lagavulin 16 year today.

    Ardbeg 10. All the talk here pushed me to actually try it, after starting with Uigeadail. I like it very much: it has a light peat (compared to Uigeadail or Laphroaig) and nice mild sweetness to balance it. It is fun to see where the base peat and sweetness notes come from in the Uigeadail. Having tried a few variations and met Dr. Bill Lumsden, I have to say I am very impressed with the Glenmorangie/Ardbeg products.
