Peat Fest gets my vote, very little difference between this and Islay Time for me but I'm desperate to try Amrut peated and this may be just the reason (note reason not excuse MrsT) I need to buy a bottle.

I'm happy either way really, Islay Time or Peatfest. It's just another excuse for me to open a new bottle or two, also to try some samples I've had hanging around as well! :D :D :D :D

I voted Islay Time just to keep it a little more focused. There are still plenty of distilleries/drams to choose from.

I wouldn't mind seeing a follow-up "non-Islay Peat Time" tasting, though.

True Jeff, but it reduces me from 12 bottles to 5! :insane:


Ok, you all heard it here. Nick is committing to to reviewing all 12 of his bottles for this tasting if we go with "Peat Time".

I'm sticking with Talisker but can work with any of the options.

Since it looks like a Peatfest, I've been contimplating this as well. Since I have about 40+ bottles/samples to try, there is no way I'll do them all either. So the way I'm going to attack it is to try and do notes on some samples that I haven't tasted yet, and same goes for the bottles I have open (ones I haven't done notes for that is).

And like Mikey said, I will start with the lightly peated stuff, and move along from there. :smoke:

Personally fancied an opportunity to sample some Taliskers. But would not be averse to anything Islay.

I voted but it's a secret. :P

Highland Park would be good for the next go around, if it hasn't been done recently.
