>I have two words to say to that: Loch Dhu.
Well, actually I have never tasted it myself I have only seen it once beeing mentioned on a site (maltmadness.com?) getting rediculous 10 of 100 points...
(BTW : How does Loch Dhu taste? I'm curious. It can't be THAT bad. I think I will taste it BECAUSE it was so badly rated
But that's exactly the point. No one has my palate, I mean I have to taste it all myself. My beloved Glenturret 18y and St. Magdalene 24y have gotten fairly low ratings from Murray and Jackson, while everone is, from my point of view, overrating that crap called Laguvalin. No, I don't like it, not at all. See, 'cause of this I have to test every single whisky on my very own. You can repeat 1000 times that some strange japanese whiskey is good, but I doubt that I would like, unless I taste it - and now comes my argument - you simply can't drink ALL whiskeys of the world, there are too much. So I concentrate myself on one great region - Scotland and one great type of whiskys - Single Malts - to eleminate at least a small fraction of possible brain killers...
