Be there or be square
First was a Brora 30yo 2004 56.6 %. Only one word came to my mind: WOOW !!! This one was already somewhere on my shortlist but now it's certainly in my top 3!
Second was a Springbank 21yo OB 46 %. Very smooth, rich, and very very good. But I still liked the Brora better.
Third: Ardbeg 25yo John Milroy Selection 58 % 1975 - 2001. Geert told me this was a very good one. I thought it was good, but the previous ones were far better.
Fourth: Strathisla 1976-2004 Samaroli 45 %. My first Strathisla ever and OMG it's a real stunner! Absolutely loved it.
Fifth and last was an Ardbeg 1978-1997 OB. Again WOOOW !!! I usually save the best for last, but this Ardbeg is simply beautifull! Smooth, rich, slightly peated and smokey, yet in perfect balance. This one is also high on my shortlist now, even though the prices are rocketing.
I also got to take home some nice samples:
Bunnahabhain 27yo 46 % 1979 - 2007 SMoS
Benriach 1976 53 % 30 yo cask 3557 OB
Nikka 1986 - 2008 59 % OB
Springbank 37yo 41.5 % Dun Bheagan 1969 -2006
Well, I'm very pleased I made it to Oostende. I will make sure I'll be there next year!
