Have to agree with you there mike!

The Ardbegs are great and dramming a Laphroaig QC just now!

Alexppp - i prefer the Founders over the 12yo any time and the three wood auchentoshan over the toshan 12 as well

I voted for Aberlour A'Bunadh, giving some weighting to value for money, over the Ardbeg Uigeadail. Sad to see Longrow CV doesn't have any votes yet, this is a great value whisky too.

For me at present moment is a few ...Talisker 57 Degrees North and Aberlour A'bunadh.
But again there is a difference in batches so it must be considered as well. For example..I've tried Talisker 10yo for the first time in 2008 and the last one in 2012 which I've bought it in 2010 and I can tell there is a huge difference..2008 seems to be much smokier and salty on the palate,and the nose smokier as well,but the last one was completely different more kind a fruity and not much smoky at all.I was really disappointed with the last one.

For me it all really depends on my mood which NAS whisky i reach for but there is no doubt that there are some amazing NAS whiskies available of which my favourites would be Aberlour A'bunadh, Ardbeg Corryvreckan, Ardbeg Uigeadail and Talisker 57 Degrees North.

Although for everyday dramming the Talisker 57 Degrees North priced around £60 is getting a bit silly these days, nice whisky but still young and i don't think the price tag is justified so not one i buy very often nowadays, the Talisker 10 year old from the supermarket satisfies me perfectly well for around £25 when i am in the mood for Talisker.

None of those listed. My favorite NAS is The Balvenie TUN 1401 Batch #3

I had to choose the threewood, it's one of the whiskys I drink most,
It's very consistent, I do like the aberlour but there can be a few tainted batches , I don't drink the peated stuff so none of them could be considered ...
Another one worth mentioning though is the Auchentoshan valinch, a yearly batch release so no more limited than some others...

There is probably a whole load more no age staement whiskies which could be added to the choices since this thread started.

In Macallans defence, i have tried all the new Macallan 1824 Series and they are excellent although i am not impressed with this trend for no age staement whisky which is nothing more than a increasing the profits excercise.

Agreed! My introduction to NAS malts was via bottles such as Aberlour A'Bunadh and Longrow CV, which were good enough to make a case for dropping the age statement (even if I'd rather they said 7yo!). However it's getting out of hand now and nothing to do with showcasing value (Macallan Gold, Talisker Storm, Fettercairn Fior, etc). I fear for the future and just hope that we don't lose age statements altogether as they are benchmarks without which standards could gradually slip.

I agree to a point I'm not at all impressed with the Mac gold to be honest. Not as good as the bottles it was replacing. The more expensive stuff is much better though.

I would add Glendronach cask strength. Only tried batch 1 which is most excellent.
