Figured there are quite a few lovers/connoisseurs in here, many much more experienced and advanced than I. Please feel free to recommend, review, post a pic or whatever relevant you may have to say/post on the topic. I'll go first. My father-in-law wants no peat and ALWAYS buys Dalwhinnie 15. I figured I'd get him something I knew he'd like but which was not D15. Ended up with Aberlour 12. A bit sharper, less body, equal sweetness. Might try with a little water, but said person prefers his whisky in small shots glasses and I have to go with the flow... (And he still prefers Dalwhinnie.) Other suggestions most welcome.
