    Completely agree. Insanely good. This is the best Compass Box I've had, which is saying something.

    The Beist is anything BUT a beast... One of the tamer, more "adult" Ardbegs around. It's rich and smokey - but far from a monster than a CS Ardbeg can be. Lighter on smoke/peat (and alcohol) than the 10 year is.

    Delicious and worthy of much praise in it's own way, but not a "beast" by any stretch compared to any other younger, more vibrant and potent CS Islay. I always found the name to be a misnomer, it's still an amazing dram.

    In terms of year-to-year? I notice only marginal differences. They're all equally good for being an well aged, moderate proof Ardbeg.

    It took a little while to open up, but it's pretty fantastic.

    The ABV is 45% - at least here in Canada (not 46).
    Well now I am not sure if I am drinking Whisky or Liqueur. I am not aware of any other spirit actually blended with sherry. I will contemplate that with my remaining bottle and a half.

    I opened an Amrut Fusion last night and found it really difficult. It reminded me of Walker Green Label, very similar nose that was quite pleasing, but the palate is a little all over the place. A little young tasting as well, which I expected. I think I'll grow to tolerate it, but first impression is definitely no more than a B-. I had a similarly underwhelming experience with a new Double Rye last night. Definitely a weird night for whiskies. Maybe it was me.

    Ok, that Laphroaig 10yr CS has a heck of a finish that lingers for a while. Very tasty Islay! There is a definite sweetness that I wouldn't expect to compete step for step with the peat and smoke. I still prefer the Ardbeg 10 for a go to Islay, and the Alligator as the "in your face" Islay. But in the meantime.... Barkeep! Pour me another of that izlay, ya know that frog stuff!
