    Ardbeg Galileo. It's "interesting" - but y'all were right... It starts "ok" but ends up driving off the cliff with Toonces at the wheel.

    Thx to @LB for the sample!

    I have to agree with you here,and what is up with the odd olive note you get with this one,not Ardbeg at it's finest indeed.

    LOL! But unfortunately not as funny - this expression just fails to sustain the Ardbeg "Ooomph" and dies pitifully in a crash down the mountain :-)

    Pushed past the bourbon and rye for the first time in a long time this afternoon, digging out the Laphroaig 10 yr Cask Strength. Hmmm . . . peaty goodness, how I've missed thee

    Bought one of these a few weeks back for a nice price. I've sampled about 100 ml and will bring it to Bardstown for others to try. Very tasty and complex with some tropical fruit (mango-papaya) as a bonus to other spices, nuts and chocolate flavors. Great change of pace but...I still favor a spirit made from at least 51% corn and put in new charred oak .

    I have to agree with you Thad,I managed to pick up a few on clearance and the DeLord 25yr is a pretty enjoyable pour with tons of chocolate notes and burnished cinnamon,quite complex.I find this to be a fun and enjoyable pour and one that I have everyone try that visits my house as a digestif,haven't had any complaints yet.

    Change of pace is a good way to put it. I do enjoy the similarities & differences between the spirit genres - it's been (and continues) to be fun tasting my way around the world.
