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.

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.

Mackmyra First Edition... A veritable spring garden with lashings of ripe pears, citrus, mint and pepper. Really pleasurable pour.

BenRiach 12 Year Old Matured in Sherry Wood... A well nigh exceptional Jerez-casked malt at its price point.

The evening before, Lagavulin Natural Cask Strength, 2006 Release.

Just had a friend buy a Laphroaig 10 for me from duty-free.

Can't wait to try it.
