    The worst?

    Johnny Walker Red Label. Bilgewater mixed with Ethenol is better.
    Yea, the Red isn't very good, to say the least.

    Maybe you should steer clear of the Islays.

    Why? Because I had two crap bottles, both which happened to be from Islay? That's like saying, "Oh, you didn't like The Phantom Menace? Maybe you should steer of the sci-fi genre entirely."

    Considering I've been to Islay before (as well as spending two days there again this summer), and practically have a section of my house dedicated to Bruichladdich, this is amusing to me.

    Wow. You are really touchy.

    Maybe you should go have a drink.

    Without question. The Hart Brother's 22 year old bottling of Bowmore. We call this beauty, "The Green Bowmore". The color is actually a shade of green. The nose is incredibly perfumey. The classic "FWP" profile. Loch Dhu is in the running as well.

    French Whore Perfume = FWP. Found in some older Bowmore.

    Seriously. It was an apt nosing note that grew legs. Or rather spread em? I'll stop there.
