Glenmo Lasanta
Aberlour 12, 16, A'Bunadh
Balvenie Double Wood, Single Barrel
Bowmore 12
Ardbeg Galileo

Tasting with friends. The newbies seemed to like the Bowmore better than anyone else. A'Bunadh (batch 40) was not well appreciated. Single Barrel was my favorite. Aberlour 12 was the favorite of the Aberlours. Galileo was also well-liked.

Also, some partook of Laga 12, Octomore 2.0 and Bowmore 17.

I was surprised how well brownies paired with The Balvenie Single Barrel. :)

Rock Hill Farms Single Barrel... A surge of citrus (lemon-orange) at the outset followed by a gradually escalating sweetness, then a solid infusion of rye crispness. Delicious.

½ & ½ Ardbeg 10 Year Old and BenRiach 12 Year Old Matured in Sherry Wood (Pédro Ximénez and Oloroso)... Surprised, given the relative proportions of the malts, how well the BenRiach 'stood up to' the Ardbeg. A sort of peat-infused fruitcake flavour profile. Delicious.

Followed that experiment up with some Bowmore 18 Year Old. Beguilingly complex and tasty, if not a patch on the best bottlings of the much more 'exotic' 17 Year Old issued years ago.

Amrut Single Malt (46%ABV)... Lovely juxtaposition of malt sweetness and rippling spiciness, the latter with a decidedly exotic quality to it.

I had a Talisker 10 last night, for the first time. Holy hell, it smells and tastes like the sea!!

Can I expect more of the same from Islay malts as well?

Some are more briney than others. I find a lot of seaweed/sea in Laphroaig and Ardbeg.

What about relative to the Talisker?

More intense smokiness/peatiness (than Talisker) and, in the case of Laphroaig, a very distinctive kelp-like and medicinal flavour component. Counterbalancing this is the fact that Talisker displays a quite unique spiciness (think pepper).

For me last night, Alberta Premium Dark Horse.
