I had to take one of the kids to a basketball game, so I thought I'd take advantage of my 'down time' and swing by our local cigar/martini bar, 15C. This is where I had my first Laphroaig 10, and as I recall I didn't much care for it. Tasted too 'soapy' IMO.
Well, last night I ordered another one (a double, just to make certain
) and I'll be damned if it wasn't phenomenal. So I don't know if my first one was a bad batch or if my palate has improved, but I take back all the bad things I ever thought about this dram.
Of course, lighting up a cigar to go along with it wasn't the smartest choice; the ToraÃ±o I had pretty much overpowered the smoke in the Lappy. Probably should have had a martini. . .
