Too slow Les .... that's the problem with living in these grand estates .... by the time you get from the front gate into your mansion offers like these are gone

Great so there is a mini winging it's way to me as we speak
Can't wait the spice tree was an enjoyable experience so I hope this is just as flavoursome with of course a smidgeon of peat

Got my sample Tuesday. surprisingly good.
Taste and colour actually reminiscent of Ardbeg 10...so tried the 2 back to back. Definite differences then became apparent. The Ardbeg "arrival" is kinda incomparable, harder(in a good way)and the finish slightly sweeter.
But hey. That's a pretty good comparison/recommendation. And Waitrose don't charge a hill o' beans for it. I think I saw it at £19 recently...
I gather it's a blend of Caol Ila and Ardmore.

Personally whilst I like the Peat Monster, it's a good drinkable whisky, to me it's a misnomer, and perhaps Peat Teddy would have been a more apt name.
