I finished the night on a high note with Ardbeg Day. This bottle has really grown on me over the last few months. I think I can say I have officially acquired a taste for the richly sweet sherry finish on top of the earthy smoke of the peat; it's like smoking a cigar dipped in sherry. I'm heading out to look for more sherry finished Islay. Like, now.
Your description reminds me a lot of Ardbeg Ugedail. It's one of the best scotches I've ever had, and around these parts it's cheaper than Day.
There are two ways of getting home; and one of them is to stay there. - GK Chesterton
