    The Aberlour 10 is excellent, however for just a few dollars more the Aberlour a'bunadh is even better. Cask strength, non-chill filtered with a nose so rich it's like a trail mix.

    If the price is right I think Cragganmore 12 yo is worth going out of your way. I'm not familiar with Aberlour, but Cragganmore roundly beats the other two for me.

    And by the way, what should I drink when I come to Sydney next month?

    One would be hard pressed to find a better Speysider than Glenfiddich 15 Solera Reserve in the low price range. You can usually find it on sale for less than $30 in southern California. IMO, you would have to get up around $45-$50 to do any better...

    I have never seen that version of Glenfiddich before. Can you buy it in the states?

    Glenfiddich Caoran (pronunced "ku-ran") is not available in the US. It is a 12 year old Glenfiddich finished in casks which previously held Islay whisky. About $54 (£27.00) in the UK

    I just visited a forum for Scotch Whiskey and nobody had anything good to say about the Glenfiddich Caoran. Interesting...
