Nah right to left...warm up on a few shots, then dig in and settle back on the lagavulin.
...when you're palate has been destroyed by the cheap stuff. Don't get me wrong Ballantines is good mass market stuff and their older blends and single malts are excellent, but the Lagavulin is the star of that show.Nah right to left...warm up on a few shots, then dig in and settle back on the lagavulin.
haha. couple years back it was up to 400 bucks a bottle because of supply. It was absurd. Same thing with yamazaki 12. When you see it at the regular price, always worth picking up a case or a half case just because you know there will be money to be made.I can barely find the Lagavulin 16 at the moment, seems in short supply
Ardbeg 10 is one for the best IMHO. I have their Uigeadail that I have only cracked open recently.Bought a bottle of Ardbeg 10 tonight, really nice, in more supply than the Lagavulin 16 to which I am acustomed
I will give it a try, thanksArdbeg 10 is high on my list of favourites. But if you want to smack your tastebuds around, try their "Wee Beastie". Aged only five years, it's unashamedly young and aggressive. The peat smokiness is huge, and being such an unmatured brew, it lacks the subtlety of others, however at the heart is still a good spirit. It's bloody yum in its rugged, unrefined way.
