But I agree with Lord_P - the Very Young were quite good and and this is supposedly even better.

For how long have your bottle been open?
Mine has been breathing for six months+ and it has lost a lot of it's initial "kick in the teeth" attack - it's now mellower and a bit sweeter. Actually I like it better now than when I first opened it.

I battled through 2 bottles of the Very Young. I rather enjoyed it and certainly prefer it to 'Oogie.
An 8yo CS OB Ardbeg, with a cool label and warnings of 'it's too peaty - you wont like it'. I'm tempted to get in the car and drive rather than wait for one to come in the post.
I wont be adding water and plan to only sample it before 12.00 pm.

As a fan of Ardbeg, you ll love it!
More powerful than VY ??!!
Must really be a mouthfull then. Makes one wonder if they intend the new Ten to be akin to the current expression or if they plan to take it in a new, perhaps peatier direction...
