    Just had a drop (literally) of the Lagavulin 16 that I ordered. It's good. Strange, but good. As I said earlier, I'm used to Speyside, but this has a complex, almost medicinal sweetness, in some ways, sweeter than a Speyside. The smokiness is there, but nowhere near as pronounced as I was expecting. Reminds me of Lapsang Souchong in a way. Will need to spend more time with this one, but so far, so good.

    They are quite lightly peated

    I'm sure I've had Superstition, but a long time ago.

    Have just ordered some Lagavulin 16. Islay has not been too good to me in the past, but this receives such consistent praise, that it deserves a place in the cabinet. Hoping I like it/grow to like it, if not, I'm sure future guests will help finish the bottle!

    i like my Whisky but as a driver (on shifts) i dont get nearly enough time to sample anymore. Im even having a cigar without a wee dram recently.

    im Scottish and most of my collection is Scotch. My favorite tipple is Bushmills 10 but my go to Whisky is Bushmills blended - both Irish Whisk(e)y
    the only others ive only tried is Japanese whisky and bourbons. the Japanese stuff is really nice and ive yet to try a bourbon id try again!

    all the bottles in the boxes are full, ive an attic full of empty boxes lol and a fridge top full of opened bottles

    Bit of a mess, need some time off to "tidy"

    I agree. The 16yr old is my favourite whisky by far.

    Good taste. Love both of those. I find the 16 has more punch.
