Hurrah it's still Xmas ( :| ), or at least the tree survived round 1 of the in-house de-Christmassing.

Interesting. Lovely soft malt barley on the nose balanced quite well with crisper grain. Minerally. Palate is weaker but still ok being oakey. So far so good.

Ardbeg Ten L13003. I like this much better than those from 2011 and 12. This is more fruity and oily, less smoky.

Glen Kirk 8

Wine Enthusiast rated this 93.

Nose: bitter oranges, carmel
Palate: light cinnamon, astringent, oaky
Finish: rather long with astringent oak and lemons

So, the 93 must be on a scale of 200..... :mrgreen:

Repeat pour. I think it is a little better as it isn't quite so astringent.
