Malt lover? What are your favourite malts?

This is for the whisky drinkers amongst us who like our malts. My favourites are the Islay malts, in particular: Port Ellen (1982:13yo), Ardbeg, Caol Ila

Plus of the other whiskies: Glenturret, Clynelish, Rosewood, Old Pulteney & Scapa.

Many years ago, I was told by a Sweaty Sock that
"There is no such thing as a bad whisky " and I believe that to be so.It's just that some are better than others.
That's a bit profound for this time of day aint it?

I have to agree about the Islay malts although I only discovered them recently after reading Raw Spirit by Ian Banks (reccomended reading).

I was in our local offy recently and they had a malt called Drumguish on sale for £9.99, well I couldn't resist at that price and it's not bad. It's on the young side but with nice grassy, peaty flavours. Apparently it normally sells for between £12 and £17.00 and if you see it, it is well worth getting in for when you don't want to share the really good stuff!

Any malt but all time favourite Glenmorangie.

That was the first one I ever tasted, from my Chief Observer in the ROC... lovely stuff. Before then I though whisky meant the blended stuff like Teachers which I hated!
