I re-read a review I posted in 2013 wherein I gave this fine whisky a low score. I was new to Islays. As is nearly always the case, persistence paid off and now I am an almost exclusive Islay drinker and there is just no going back. Ardbeg 10 year is a wonderful flavor explosion.

I see what you mean. I was hesitant about peated whiskies when I first started. Now I very much enjoy the style. but I also enjoy other styles as well, as long as the specific expression is a well-made whisky.

I encourage you, if you have not already done so, to seek out some quality sherry-matured and bourbon matured unpeated whiskies bottled at 46% or higher. I would also recommend a Springbank offering. No harm in expanding your whisky world...

I have tried Springbank 10 YO and enjoyed it. Tried some of the sherried Macallans; so so. I drink whisky straight and like whiskies with higher ABV (like the burn). Tried most things with a little water or ice. Invariably find I wish I had not added anything. Now I don't.

Now that you've tried Macallans, try some GOOD sherry-matured stuff like Aberlour A'Bunadh, Glendronach 15 YO, Glenfarclas 15YO...
