Shelled out for the 'froyg 10 on friday afternoon and was absolutely blown away. Found the peat smoke and heather totally different to anything i'd tasted before. Im definitely an Islay convert Bought an Ardbeg 10 on sat afternoon but found it quite hot and spirity, maybe the 46% abv overwhelmed me?
I also purchased two XL5 wine nosing glasses, and while I could really pick out the notes of both whiskies, I found they made the spirit taste much more alcoholic and spirity than tumblers. Any thoughts?
On a side note, does anyone notice a hint of banana in the Laphroaig 10's nosem or is it just me?
