Alright, Islay (and other peat&smoke whiskies) tastings have continued.
I received small bottle of Laphroaig 10 Y.O. It was untaimed, wild, very smoky but less peat (tar) taste than in Lagavulin and saltier. Excellent stuff, I love it, I would give 9.5 to it.
One acquaintance bought sherry cask Port Ellen Douglas Laing bottling(?) 18Y-1981, but that bottle is unreachable to me, price is way too high to my wallet.
Bowmore and Caol Ila I will test/taste next after I got Ardbeg on my hands.
Btw. Should I buy 17 Y.O. Ardbeg or is 10 Y.O. Ardbeg near to same? I guess 17 Y.O. is off the market for sometime in near future, or?
