I think this is a great whisky too, but I'm shocked to hear you say this ! Including all bourbons ?

My stock answer to this is Highland Park 18yo, but truthfully it was probably a Scotch Malt Whisky Society bottling of Glenugie (24yo). No point recommmending it as the distillery is demolished and that particular dram on lives on in a few peoples' memories Glenugie is very distinctive and full of tropical fruit flavours (and plasticine ! - but nice) and if you ever get a chance to try it go for it.
