You are right, I might give it another go. Definately a malt I have to pay attention to. The 10 didnt seem that difficult. I figured I might as well give it a go since it is on sale. I'm still really mad Lagavulin increased 25 bucks a bottle. Dammit. Gotta stock up on the Aberlour this winter. I wish we had the 16
Only 10,12 and A'bunadh.
Does your circle of friends or even your family drink sms?
Elagabalus, you have experienced my great fear, which is to drop a lot of money on a bottle and be disappointed to the point that you dont even want to finish it.
But, scotch can be an emotional thing. Sometimes, I have a dram of something new, and it is terrible I think, or a disappointment on some level, and that sentiment has more to do with my bad day than the whisky. Other times, I recollect a great taste to a mediocre bottle, upon subsequent tasting, and the great taste probably had more to do with the company and conversation. Solution? Have another drink . . .
