I've been sipping at a 15-YO Signatory un-chill filtered Clynelish (92 proof). It's one of the palest whiskies I've seen -- even more so than Ardbeg 10. The flavor is terrific, but very delicate, with some nice saltiness and a little bit of vanilla sweetness. This is a whiskey that requires some attention. If I were drinking it while watching a movie or while talking to friends I think it'd almost disappear. I like it a lot, and would definitely try another bottling of Clynelish, especially if it were bottled at a higher proof.

Lately I've been really digging the briny single malts -- particularly this Clynelish and the Talisker 10 and 18. Does anyone have a recommendation for a similar sort of Scotch?
