no defense needed, mon frere
I think we all have bottles that don't match our collection/aren't to our tastes/we later regret/the spouse picked up/received as a gift/etc.
although, really, M+S?
It's working a treat to be honest. I managed to open up a Green Spot tonight and she was easily distracted by the M+S Islay so that my lovely pot-still went unravaged!
It really isn't great though. I'm no Islay nut, but I've enjoyed Laphraoigs, Bunnahabhains and Bowmores in the past. This tasted like some sort of smoke-damaged lemonade to me.
