You know, the ones that, when you finish a bottle, you immediately replace it, or perhaps always have a spare on the shelf already?

Mine are:

Highland Park 12 - I still this is one of the best standard expressions there is, real depth of flavour and lovely finish

Talisker 10 - Uniquely savory and long.

Caol ila 12 - my 2nd favourite Islay. So a delicate balance of all those factors in Islays with out being overpowering.

Laguvullin 16 - as a friend once described "Like Laphroaig's older sexier sister, you just want to dim the lights and spend some time alone with this one"

I have a line up of whisky pretty much along the lines of what other have posted that are always on my shelf. A couple of slightly more expensive drams which I always replace on the shelf are Ardbeg Uigeadail, Glenlivet 18, Glenfiddich 18 and Talisker 18

To be completely honest I am not a creature of habit and while some of the whiskies already listed are good ones and we all like Laga 16 right, I would rather try something new usually and spend my money that way.

No regulars. There is too good selection of quality malts now a days that curious creature, like me, doesnt want to spend too much time with one brand/bottle.
I love trying new things!

There are a few Irish blends such as Black Bush, Bushmills Original, Jameson Black Barrel that I always replace. I always have Redbreast 12 and Glenfarclas 15 or 17 to pour when the mood takes me. I have other regular pours, in fact many of the whiskies mentioned above but I do like to vary what I have available to pour and I do like to explore a bit with new to me whiskies.

Sums me up too, apart from Various Glendronach's & Ardbeg's

My education is also continuing with quality Cognac/Armagnac & Rums

Ones I'd be looking to keep in stock:

Talisker 18 (when available)
Glenlivet 18
Laphroiag quarter cask
Cragganmore 12 or Craigellachie 13 as a good malty dram
Glenfarclas 17
