Re: Which one...?

Especially if you're new to Ardbeg, I'd advise to go to the core. The 10 is their basic expression, go for it. Uigeadail is a peated sherry monster, way stronger. That would be a great second for a beginner. It varies from batch to batch. Corryvrekan committee bottling was imho fantastic but the reg...

That 105.13 was the biggest surprise for me. A very deep whisky, kept on giving like drawers inside drawers! Beautiful treacle (or black strap even) aftertaste on grassy notes. A delish, really <3

Re: Glendronach 18 "Allardice"

For one, I prefered the 15... Maybe I had a spoilt batch but the 18 displayed quite "chemical" flavours :x Not unpleasant with a lot of wood and spice which I adore but it looked "off" if you see what I mean. As if there was a competition. The 15 on the other hand doesn't promise...

I must say, after tasting this for the first time, the oogie is not much better on the palate than the 10yo.
