    Hrmmm, time to do a bit of googling, thanks for the suggestions, a few I'm familiar with and have had a bottle or 2 of but some Ive never heard of.

    I got my Archie Rose whisky today. I cracked a bottle at work to have a sniff and it smells absolutely amazing. I can't wait to have a good test over the weekend...

    BWS has the Hellyers Road 10yo for about $20 off at the moment (reduced from $99), should still be on special for another week or so.
    I bought a bottle as a wee birthday gift for myself last week, but wasn't in a whisky drinking mood until last night. It's pretty good.
    Honey and citrus/floral aromas when I cracked the bottle, a very mild smokiness in the throat, similar in style to a Speyside (I like Speyside :)).
    Dunno if it's a great deal at $99, but at the reduced price it's not a bad drop at all. Glad I tried it.
