I have tried all on the list except the Balvenie Double Wood 12 y.o. Highland Park 12 y.o gets my vote, what a whisky.

You should try it Davy, it is a very nice dram. It got my vote. Highland Park would have been my second choice out of this lot.

My vote goes to Highland Park.
I do enjoy all the 12 year old whiskies listed but i would say the Highland Park stands out from the rest here.

Although HP12 would be my close rubber up.

: The Macallan 12 year old for me. My whisky cabinet is never without a Mac 12 in it.

My preference is always the islay region style whiskies so Bowmore is my choice here. But the rest of the whiskies listed are all very good drams in my opinion.

The Macallan 12 is excellent and my choice but the rest of the whiskies in the poll are also very good especially the Highland Park, The Balvenie and the Dalmore.
