Balvenie carribean cask when on a trip because it's a special occasion.

Glenfiddich rich oak or Macallan gold at home.

Glenfiddich 21 when I win the lottery

(Like that rum finish)

I'm not big on the peat. I got a bottle of Bowmore one year and didn't much care for it. Brought to deep freeze and it was drank around the communal fire pretty quick!!

This Glasgow born Scot drinks blends with WATER
I'm too cheap to spend anything more , and I think it's mostly hype
Don't complain about the price , it's actually more expensive to buy most of these malts in Scotland because of taxation levels

I'll second the Aberlour A'bunadh; it comes with me on all trips. It is especially suited for canoe trips, as being cask strength it goes further.

If we have the room the quarter cask also makes the cut!

Hoolio, although it's a fine poteen, Tullamore Dew is Irish whiskey, not Scotch whisky, which is what the OP was curious about.
Sláinte!

From atop a hill in the north you can see scotland and its all just firewater so I vote to keep a bit of the fire of Eire in the chat :) I have to admit I keep the more expensive stuff at home and take good old Canadian hootch for when I'm out with the water and trees. Forty creek copper pot and for a great value Alberta Premium for a bit of rye from the prairies. If ya be a stickler for the old country I'd had Highland Park (12yr?) as a nice middle of the road drink, if you like peat but are on a bit of budget but it stretches to $55 highly overtaxes dollars I enjoy Bowmore 12. If you want a little rougher raspier drink but till get the drink in your teeth with Islay Mist at $30.

Laphroaig Quarter Cask or Aberlour A'bunadh Cask Strength. The first is like licking dirt (and I'm not afraid to get my lips dirty) and the second is just damn good.

I see a trend here. QC and A'buhadh. Nuff said.
