Glenmorangie 9 yr Artisan cask
Glenmorangie Port wood finish
Glenmorangie Tain L'Hermitage
Ardbeg 6 yr old cask strength
Ardbeg 10 yr old
Ardbeg Lord of the Isles.
Personally, I don't like the Glenmorangie 10, but the Artisan cask was very good. Not as fruity and more dry. An amazing difference.
The Ardbeg 6 yr old was very good. It's the new distiller's test bottling of their own spirit. Very good. I think they should bottle it and sell it.
The 10 yro old and the Lord of the Isles you probably know about. I love them both.
Bill is great at doing tastings for his portfolio. Great sense of humour, but you know you're also dealing with a genuine expert. I admire his passion for "releasing the serpent", but disagree with his insistence that we should add water.
That was quite a line up though. I'm very jealous!
The lady hosting the tasting became extremely agitated when I would not add water to a 46% whisky, and flushed with anger when I tried some cask strength Glenmoranige without it.
Personally I drink all whisky straight, except Macallan cask strength, but usually try them with and without water when its a new one.
BTW, must try that very young Ardbeg.

Isn't the 6yo cask strength Ardbeg the latest Committee Bottling that they're bottling under the name "Very Young Ardbeg"?
Indeed, few weeks ago the committee memebers received a postcard saying the responces were so positive they decided to release it as a OB. Heard form my shop it will be on the shelves later this month in Holland.
Popped open my second bottle just yesterday I bought, it's an awesome dram.
You must be right, as it said very young Ardbeg on the bottle. I thought it was just something they were playing around with and had not released.
The tasting went very well, and I have a much better appreciation for the Glenmorangies.
I don't think the Artisan cask Glenmorangie is released yet - I would recommend you pick up some if you see it.
But,Glenmorangie Tain L'Hermitage is the best Glenmorangie i haven't taste that shows the balance of L'Hermitage's style and Glenmorangie's style.
Ardbeg very young、10yo and Lord of the Isles are both the style of Ardbeg i love.
