I’ve loved this malt for years, but recently opened a bottle for the first time in a while. Finished it in just a few days 🤪
Somehow I had never had this at home before, only with friends at bars, and it is hard to enjoy the nuances at a bar. Liking it a lot, although my Islay favorites are Caol Ila 12 and Ardbeg Uigeadail

Both excellent choices. It’s hard to go wrong with Islay, in my opinion.

Have you tried the Ardbeg Wee Beastie yet? Unbelievably good for around $50!

This has been increasingly hard to come by in my area, so I was glad to see one lonely bottle this afternoon at my favorite local shop.View attachment 63212
Shane, if you can find it, I highly recommend the Springbank 10 Local Barley. We sampled it at my Scotch club last night and everyone in the room sang it’s praises.

Ardbeg Uigeadail is my favorite, but a bottle is over $100 in my area, Heck, even the Laphroaig 10 is $70.

I’ll definitely keep my eyes peeled. I’ve never seen that one in the wild, otherwise I’d probably have snagged it. It’s probably regional, but our selection of American Whiskey seems to be much better than Scotch, in this area. Maybe I can special order a bottle...

Where are the boozers...it's now well into February and still no thread?

Don't want to start one in case I make an arse of it so I'll post here. Earler I had a lovely cold Quilmes 1890 beer after a hot 33c day.
