    ardbeg 10. For wife's real b-day.

    nose: Tester's model airplane glue, mop and glo floor wax, kiwi oxblood shoe polish
    palate: turtle car wax fading to olive green high-gloss laquer (Pittsburg paint?)
    finish: freshly laid linoleum basement

    We agree. Excellent! It's one of our favorite SMSWs.

    edo, great description of the Ardbeg 10. I like it too, as well as the Dalwhinnie 15.

    Yes AVB, it was the Flaura and Fauna series. I should have bought several as I finished this one during the trip.....which brings me to answer Oscar's Q?

    I agree that the flavor or overall "impression" of some drinks are affected by food, location, weather, company, etc. Especially some local wine when you're dining in a cafe in Italy......it never tastes the same when you get it back home. But I haven't had that same experience with whiskeys......plus I finished it over about 5 days (Val even liked it to). So I guess I liked it.

    Glenfiddich 15. One of my favourite malts. So many layers of flavour working in perfect harmony.

    Tasted the new Dalmore line. The 12 and Grand Reserve were quite pleasant and affordable. King Alexander really stole the show for me. Really nice and complex. The 15 was not bad either ( Sherry goodness). I just don't find dalmore to have any offensive whiskey. Just nice and pleasant.

    I had a Rob Roy with Red Label and very old (as in, open on the self) vermouth that was the epitome of nastiness. Now I am trying to wash the taste out with Old Pulteney 12.

    I bought a bottle of Clontarf Irish whiskey. Charcoal-mellowed, like Jack Daniel's.

    Impressions: Sweet, lots of vanilla, mild, mellow. Almost too drinkable. That's about it. Not the most interesting, but a great "gateway" whiskey, and still enjoyable after a day of work.
