Recommend a Highland

Post by 4Zilch » Wed Jul 17, 2019 9:37 pm

I’m looking for a non cask finished Highland to replace the GlenMorangie that I’m running dangerously low on. What do you guys recommend?

It's pricey but that Dalmore Cigar Malt I was sipping on a few weeks ago is flipping fantastic. Alternatively, Speyside but I live for Balvenie.

Does Balvenie have a non finished offering? If so, I’m on board.

Alternatively, I’ve been eyeballing Dalmore for a minute.

I haven't noticed until this post how hard it is to find an "unfinished" Highland Scotch these days. Especially something that matches up to Glenmorangie in price. I believe Balblair 12 may come close.

I suspect it's because it's easy to hide flaws and increase cost with finishing?
