Very nice. JM gave this one 96.5 so when I saw it for £29 I thought :iwbrnt:

I wouldn't have gone that high with it, but it is good :D

G&M Linkwood Cote Rotie 1991. Spectacular whisky in celebration of Robbie Burns on January 25th. Right up there with my Port Ellen for my taste.

Tried a Glenfarclas afterwards and it tasted harsh and crass in comparison!

A spritely peppery Teerenpeli 8 yo 43% Single Malt from Finland. Lovely coffee notes and with water some good fruit. If it was cheaper i'd get it regularly.

Octomore Comus.
I've been curious about this one, and I think it grows on you with a little time and water. I've been collecting a few of this kind, and I'm thinking of doing a "heavily peated and beyond" tasting with a few Ardbegs including the Supernova 10 and another Octomore. Have any of you done that?

Not heavily but I have done a small series of the heavily peated. One such tasting was the original Octomore against the 2010 Supernova and the Octomore Futures. My choice was the Octomore Futures in that it was more complex and enjoyable than the other two.

Trevor,
