No. They are quite different really. The Laga is a lot sweeter and smokier than the Amrut. The Amrut on the other hand has a very high alcoholpercentage by vol. so that makes a huge difference too. The Amrut is peatier than the Laga, but lacks smoke and it has a lot of spices on the palate like cloves. If I would taste this blind I'd say it's my Cask of the Yamazaki Heavily Peated (but then without the fruityness).

Uigeadail... The contents of this bottle are getting dangerously low. And although there's a spare in reserve, I'm wondering if that's enough!

Amrut peated CS 62.8 % with a dash of water. It's not an overly complex dram but it sure is nice ... and powerfull.

Popped the top on one of my Auchentoshan 1998 Cask Strengths (Fino Sherry cask matured) last night. Initial impression: Very well balanced between sweetness and tartness. Absolutely drinkable as it pours, too. Very finely delineated flavour wise. Not one to rush in the glass, as it only beenfits from 'air time'. A nice whisky, indeed.

Had a long day yesterday and returned quite late. That's when I turn to my GoTo dram - Nikka Whisky From the Barrel. It never fails to hit the spot.

Auchentoshan 1998 Cask Strength (Fino Sherry)... I'm liking the contents of this bottle!

Glendronach 15 Year Old Revival... Another good whisky, this one. No off notes and a nice balance between the Sherry cask influence and the malt.

Ardbeg 1990 Taste Still, Robert Alonzi label. Pretty powerfull stuff. I almost had to drown this one in water, but once I did it was really good.

I had some Tomintoul and Benriach minis and was pretty disappointed to be honest. Tomintoul 10 and 16 are not good imo far too much caramel, barley and toffee. The 33 is much better with a nice orange subtlety to it.
The Benriachs I tried were the 12, 16, Curiositas and Authenticas. Again, none were outstanding, but the Curiositas was the best of them. The 12 I would avoid.
Not a great night.

Islay Mist 12 Year Old... I've really enjoyed my encounters with the 17-year old, and this younger version is rapidly gaining a similar favoured place in my repertoire. While it's not as deeply toned and serene as its older sibling, the 12-year old adds a bit of spark to the proceedings that is mightily pleasurable. Very drinkable blend!

Bruichladdich Port Charlotte PC8... No off notes here. Just a clean and cleanly matured (all American oak) take on Islay peat smokiness with a savoury salted citrus twist that has one coming back for more. Good as it pours, on a single ice cube or with one or two drops of water added, depending on one's mood at any given time.

Lagavulin Vanilla Sky. The bottle has been opened for several months now and the whisky has become much much better. I really like this one. After the Laga I had a small dram of Clynelish 1982 MoS Cask 5895.
