I have to vote Other. I've tried five of the ones listed, and I enjoy Glengoyne 12 of those, but I have to give my top vote to Springbank 12 CS.
I need to find a bottle for my own. I tried it at my favorite whisky bar, and was blown away. _________________ Slainte
This is interesting. I see that Highland Park is well ahead of the rest, so I guess that's one I ought to try. Mind you, I'm not at all sure that I'll enjoy it. The descriptions I've seen refer to smokiness, which is a feature that I've found I don't like. Indeed, one smoky whisky I've tried I found completely undrinkable.
On the other hand, I see that Balvenie Doublewood is running second. That's one I tried recently, and enjoyed very much. But of the 12YO whiskies I've tried so far (only a dozen or so), my favourite is GlenDronach. That seems to me to be the perfect dram... unless and until I find my next favourite.
I think the Highland Park 12 has the most complexity of those listed there and offers the most variety. It has a little bit of smoke for those who want to then venture into Islay, a little bit of honey and heather for those who want to explore the Speysides, and it has a little bit of rich fruit (I get pineapple) for those who want a fruitier Highland.

Out of the choices on offer the only one I might buy is Cragganmore 12 and to be honest I have not had that for years.
I selected other because I think Kilkerran 12 year for the money is much better than any of them. _________________ Pour me a glass please.
