Which whisky will Mr Limey choose? (Yes, they're all whiskies).

Tokaji in Magyar (Hungarian), Tokay in English. It's Aaran whisky aged in casks previously used to age Tokay wine. The whisky is nuanced by the wine's residual chemistry in the barrels. Multiple spirits are aged in barrels previously used for wine and the same spirit can be aged in barrels from different wines for different nuances.

That's the stuff, Mr O'Bon!

Yes, but when I asked Google for "Arran Tokay cask finish" it gave me this.

Nice of them to pay tribute to it's origins like that; but, it's also been known to the English speaking world as Tokay for a long, long time

Mebbe it was me. Mebbe I'd had a long day and a couple of beers and wrote Tokay as I'm used to seeing it rather than copying it off the whisky menu ....

It's probably Tokay, I was just confused by Google.

Also, to answer the question you posed in the post preceding the one I quoted, I'd order a whiskey flight--or two. In case you or any other teetotaler here isn't familiar, it's an order of three or four glasses of smaller portions of different whiskies (or meads or beers or sakes, you get the idea). It's intended to give the imbiber a chance to save a little money as he expands his experience. Buying a whole drink of something blind can get a little expensive and disappointing. The flights are a good way to find a new friend.
