Football season is starting up again, so I had to get an Irish to drink while watching the Irish, and picked up the odd duck at the local mart.... Lombard Smoking Ember, a pure malt.

No Laddie? I haven't had much of the recent bottlings as I thought the quality (at least here) was dropping. Is this true?

Rich , i haven't bought any Laddie since November 2008 after a personal e-mail from their former MD . I have tried some of their products since then and i must admit i wouldn't have bought any except maybe the PC .

On the Laddie. Their "recent" 10 Year Old release is really really good, especially for the price. If you have not tried it recently, this release is worth a revisit and then most likely a purchase...

That would be an Ardbeg Ten, and Redbreast 12. I honestly do not know how to describe it, I am not a huge Islay fan, and possibly even less of an Ardbeg fan, but work sucked so much this week, I said I needed to get a bottle of Beg on my way home from work.
