Best Distillers Edition anywhere on the Planet. Still stunned that the 16 yr still sells for more. Talisker DE is the closest to this in flavor experience and at 90+% of the Laga at a discount makes for good competition. But nothing beats this one, pure and simple. Ardbeg Corryvrekan is in the same class but just not this DE experience overall. I have tasted few whiskys that beat anything Islay and South Islay stands alone.
This is the worst scotch I have ever tasted - and I have tasted I drank quite a few
Excellent whisky that is sweet and smooth with a lovely smoky finish.
It was a tad disappointing! It came with rave reviews from a colleague but didn’t live up to my expectations. I found quite harsh tasting.
I sample my malts both with and without a drop or two of water. I like this one with water. Both ways, I get berrylike sweetness all day. Neat, I get more sea salt on the finish; yet with water, it is smooth from arrival to departure. Water opens the layers of flavor and this deep, rich, round flavor should be unpacked. I don't get overpowering smoke with this one, but it's there.
