Doing a comparative tasting of Islay scotches: Bunnahabhain 12, Caol Ila 12, Ardbeg 10, Laphroiag 10, Lagavulin 16.
Bunnahabhain is the odd man out - much more sweet & floral than the others, with very little peat. I like it quite a bit.
No strong conclusions yet on the other four, except that they're definitely different. Of the lot, have only had the Laphroiag 10 before, and enjoy it when I'm in the mood for a really peaty scotch. Caol Ila seems lighter than the other four - less peaty than the others, but still smoky.
My taste buds are taking a beating so I am taking a break to let them recover a bit...
