I also have drank all of these scotch neat, in a crystal glass, cleaned with gibsons 12, and air dried.
I do not add, ice, water, soda, fruit(ha ha)
I enjoy the scotch for the scotch.
I quite enjoy highlands, and speyside scotch.
This islay so far is #ing epic, pardon my language. I'm half way through my dram and wow I can't even speak ha ha.
Leather, peat, smoke, light floral(I feel like rose), mild, mild salty taste, something that tastes like estringent( im assuming this is what they
refer to as the iodine taste), Moss, cool damp earthiness, hint of woodiness(reminds me of cedar), or even punk(rotting wood). It's quite pleasant,
brings out the same emotions a hike in the early morning does. Absolutely pleasurable.
The one I tried before this was the glendronach, and I nearly finished the entire bottle in 3 days. It's about 1/4th, or maybe even 1/5th left. I
really liked that whisky, and glenmorangie ( nectar d'or) omg, so spicy and so smooth. I nearly drank that bottle in 3 days as well. It was a great
highlands malt. I will definitely buy that when I have company to share it with. It's just great.
How ever, I will certainly be enjoying this malt with a few friends. This is amazing, Iove the experience. It invokes so much, I feel like a kid. I
know it's odd to associate alcohol with child hood, it's just the smells and flavours I suppose.
