Light gold in appearance. Sweet fruity and thick on the nose with orange zest and lemon peel. There is a tiny bite upfront then sweet, floral, mild spice with a honey and fruit finish which I found fairly short.

As entry levels malts go it is a good one.

I usually drink Islay style or Bourbon whiskies, but this was a warm welcome to the more gentle side of Scotland. Good price/quality balance :)

Agreed. Islay produce most of my favourites. I Love the peaty, smokey flavours this island creates. I am trying different distilleries and I found Glenmorangie pleasant. I have ordered a Glenfarclas to try next.

Wich one did you order? I read and hear the 105 should be quite a thing and its only €38,95 for a full litre here :) I tasted the 21 once some years ago, but then I didnt know how to drink a scotch and I was a little overwhelmed by it, but I loved it though. Im thinking going into some Bruichladdich, havent tasted much of that, only the An Turas Mor and I liked it :)

I went to my local off license yesterday but they had nothing that really struck me. So, I wandered around my local farmers market with my little girl and decided that when i got home i would order something special. After much deliberation i ended up ordering a Lagavulin 1994 Distillers Edition finished in Pedro Ximinez sherry casks. I also ordered a Caol Ila Cask Strength / Quarter Bottle so only got the Glenfarclas 10 and 15 in miniature plus a mini Bunnahabhain 12. I haven't really tried many mini's but thought they would give me an insight and save me buying full bottles. Bruichladdich are in my sights also, I haven't tried any yet... So many things to try and only one lifetime in which to do so.

Jeez, that sounds great but also expensive! I totally loved the CI CS when I knew how to water it correctly. It takes a few teaspoons and a few minutes to get this beast to calm down a little, but then you get a CI 12 with a v12 in it:) Without it its just too rough and alcoholic.

It was more than I was planning on spending I must admit. It is easy to grt carried away when buying online. Good tips on the CI CS. It will definitely try your method to see what I think. I don't always add water but will try it with this.

Please let me know what you think of it! What I especially like in the Lagavulin 16 is that its quite old, but the peat and smoke are still so prominent. Makes me almost scared of the 12 cask strength, did u taste that one?
