Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night

RE: Had my first "Measure of the Macallan" last night
Thats what I have is the Ardbeg 10 year. Actually found it on sale online and couldn't resist a try.

Of the four Islays I have tried, Ardbeg by far is the strongest, and peatyest. I noticed that it did hold to the glass more a sure sign of the thicker oily texture. As far as pepper, I don't know that I got that much, but it was fairly strong. I didnt get as strong of an aroma as LaPhroiag, but it certainly was a heavy on the peat for sure.

One thing I note is some of the more experienced tasters indicate "iodine" flavor. Maybe my taster needs more work - is this something you taste, and maybe what tones am I looking for that indicate that?
