Bruichladdich is one of my favourite "all round" distilleries and in the first tasting I started with the WMD II.
I started with the Links IV in my second tasting.
Both these drams were extremely well received and were very high on everyone's favourites list.

Yes, we stood on the table and yelled aggressive things in Gaelic.
Jim was not derogatory of any distillery...in Scotland...and wasn't specific about the Irish distilleries...something I found common among the Scottish distillers. Jim complimented Bowmore, not surprising after 38 years of service there. He noted that Ardbeg is currently the most heavily peated but Lagavulin is the smokiest. At least until the release of the "BEAST".
I'd be interested to hear what he said about Irish whiskey, although maybe it was not meant to be repeated.
I think some involved with Bowmore are not too pleased with some things he has said, but I don't know the specifics, so I don't even know if it's true.
I know a group went to Islay recently and said Jim Mc was in great form and very entertaining.
He dipped his finger into the running spirit in the spirit safe and made a cross on Nigels forehead and said "now go forth and spread the word of Bruichladdich!" I almost choked on mt glass of new make Port Charlotte I was laughing so hard. I don't think Nigel has washed his face since.
