I ordered a set of tasting glasses last Saturday - they should be here today. Was hoping to try them out on a dram of LaPhroiag tonight. The thing I noticed about LaPhroiag is it doesnt matter what kind of glass its in - the aroma lights up a whole room!

Speaking of tasting Islays...

I knocked back a dram of Ardbeg 10 last night. It's unfiltered and hung around on the glass when swirled - very oily. Nosing, it's a very good representation of an Islay (salty, briney, peaty). Tasting, I got MAJOR pepper for a long time. I would say this is a bit young as the 17 is more balanced and bolder.
