Something tells me I'm in a minority here!
Not at all! I'm not a fan either of the Ardbeg TEN nor the young cask strengths (Very Young & Still Young), but the '77 is supurb! It seems my tastes go for the older Ardbegs.
Most of the Bowmore's I've tried in the last decade haven't been all that good either, though the newish 16yo cask strength OB is pretty good.
One whisky that's odd to me is the Clynelish, it's not so much the taste which isn't bad, it's the smell!!!
A little story goes with this....
I visited the Clynelish distillery in Brora several years ago and bought several minutures of the 14yo. That night I had several drinks in my room including the Clynelish for a nightcap, but didn't finish it all and fell asleep. In the middle of the night I awoke to a godawful smell that seem to permeate the entire room and after searching for that elusive odeur for several fruitless minutes I finally realized it was emanating from that dram of Clynelish. A sickly perfume stench to the point of gagdome
