    Yoichi 20, Talisker 35, Laphroaig 30 (old version) are quite iconic ones in my eyes. The Laphroaig 30 year old at least should definitely be in the top 50. I’ll try to think of some more.

    Dalmore Sauvignon 1973!

    And I agree with the Laphroaig 30

    We added the Laphroaig 30yo, the Talisker 35yo and the Dalmore Cabernet Sauvignon. Thanks!

    @Boissettes
    did you meant the Yoichi 20yo (52%) or one of the many single casks?

    I would put the standard Yoichi 20yo in there. My thinking is that it is the best “standard” bottle to represent that distillery. Springbank 1966 is another classic worth including I think, obviously there are quite a few versions to choose from, so maybe put in the one that is most traded at auctions?

    Laphroaig 40yo 1960 and Lagavulin 37yo are two more bottles I’d probably exchange some non-vital organs for.

    We added the Laphroaig 40yo (1960), the Lagavulin 37yo (1976), the Octomore Orpheus, the Highland Park Hjarta, the Ladyburn 27yo (1973), the Yoichi 20yo and the Springbank 30yo 1966 Local Barley. Thanks!

    @hotrene
    there seem to be a lot of Balvenie 25yo with 46.9. Considering the number of trades the Single Barrel 4001 would be an option.

    There is no Glenmorangie so far, i would prefer the Tain 1975 or the Margaux

    Hi there, Balvenie 25 single barrel 4001 is the option. Thanks.

    How about Glenlivet
    P.e. 25yo, Royal Wedding Reserve?

    Glenmorangie 28yo (1975) Tain L Hermitage, Glenmorangie 19yo (1987) Margaux Cask, Balvenie 25yo (1978) Single Barrel 4001 and Glenlivet 25yo Royal Wedding Reserve are now part of the Fab50.
    Looks like we already have a nice diversification. There are only three spots left.

    I would put in the St Magdalene Rare Malts 1979 (perhaps instead of one of the two RM Rosebanks if no space).

    Karuizawa 1967 is an icon.

    Something from Glenfarclas (1960 or 1965 Family Cask)

    A Glendronach 1972.

    Thanks for pointing out that we left out Glenfarclas. We added the Glenfarclas 46yo (1954) because it seems to be more regularly traded across all auction platforms. We also added the Karuizawa 42yo (1967) Cask 6426 and the St. Magdalene 19yo (1979) Rare Malts Selection.

    We now stand at 50 nominees. Feel free to further comment the nominees, potential substitutions and the like. We will set-up the Fab50 index in a couple of days.

    I would recommend the 1977 24 yo Ardbeg instead of something “just fancy” like the HP Thor.

    Hi Seb, we agree with you! Hence the Ardbeg (1977) Very Old was added and Highland Park Thor removed.

    Nice! Great app by the way, can”t believe that I somehow managed to miss it until a couple of months ago.
    Will certainly help me growing my little Islay collection 🙂
