Well, now I have cracked open the bottle.
It's far from my favourite wiskey, although I still think it is quite pleasant. And the cat-fart statement was not even close.
But I do think the bottle will last for quite a while.
However, the very same day I got an Ardbeg 10yo from my girlfriend as a valentines day present (is that true love or WHAT?
Unexperianced as I am in wiskey, I had not tasted an Ardbeg before. But it was the next wiskey on my to-by-list.
And I have to say, in my own whiskey score rating it passed Lagavulin 16yo as my favourite whiskey.
