Right now, I'm drinking Glenmorangie 10, bourbon cask. This is the first time I've tasted anything from this distillery. I must say that it is a very enjoyable Scotch... kind of light, with a taste of vanilla and honey. The nose is very nice... almost as enjoyable as the taste. I'll need to get a few more expressions from this distillery.
Starting the night with Islay Mist 8 year old. Not bad at all. The bottle describes it as a "soft" whisky, and I would agree. You get salt and smoky peat but a good amount of honey as well. The texture is quite "blendy", that is to say, a bit thin with a grainy bite, but it has more body than, say, Teachers. Pretty decent overall but for this style of blend I would go for The Black Grouse. More depth and complexity.
Will do, Edo. It is now officially on my Christmas list. Hard to imagine whisky so good, isn't it? But Laphroaig is doing an excellent job these days and I can't get enough of their stuff. All I need to do now is find any easy bank to knock off so that I can afford everything I want!
