    I'm an Ardbeg fanboy, but it's a oncer. I've turned down additional chances to grab a few more bottles - I'll still with just one, and go buy more Uigadale.
    I like your perspective on this I will end up with one I'm sure as it sounds like ours tastes are somewhat aligned.I will have to agree the Galileo fell to new lows for Ardbeg,just unbalanced and some odd notes throughout.

    This might sound a little crazy. I was going through my shelf and wanted something I haven't drank in a while so I pulled the Mellow Corn from the back. It struck me that it is similar to the Bruichladdich Bere Barley I have been working on, so I pour a second glass of that. I'm going back and forth and the Bere is much more open and has a lot more going on, but there's just something about them that is the same. The Bere is like Mellow Corn plus. They could be cousins.

    Friday night my son, who's home from law school for a week, and I got into some Bowmore 12. It's not one I turn to often, but it seemed like a good idea after drinking beer all afternoon. It was a cool, damp evening (aren't too many of those left here). Sitting outside, the Bowmore hit the spot.

    I'll be looking forward to adding Kilchoman to my bunker.

    Love Kilchoman! Great people and they're really putting forth a great proudest with lots of potential for exceptional drams in the future. Anthony Wills is a great guy if you ever get the chance to meet him.

The only downside is that my money goes to Diageo.
    Agree with everyone else. Lag 16 is just an exceptional dram. The first time Tom H poured me some it was love at first taste. And if you can get them for $55 a bottle.....an absolute steal!!!

    Yep, out of everything that comes out, Ardbeg bottlings all over the place, Caol Ilas and Laphroaigs flying around, that Lagavulin 16 is perfect in it's consistency, it's guaranteed happiness. An all star, all the time.

    Josh-

    Looks like you're having a blast. I look forward to traveling there one day to meet some of the people that had a hand in bringing these gems to fruition.
