Thanks, it's the taste I'm wondering about. I haven't had any old Islays before (Bowmore 12, Yuk. Ardbeg 10, Yum. is the oldest i have been,+ many <10's) Just trying to pick out some of the many flavours here.
Theres oily peat to start, then, well, seems to be detergent!! maybe its from my glass?? will have an extra rinse out with cold water tonight and try again. After heavy rain here, the chlorine levels in the drinking water seem to rise !!
