I had a chance to try another Islay single malt recently at Eurofurence, Ardbeg. I've got to say I liked it, too — I wasn't really able to explore its taste as much as I would've liked, but it's a whisky I'd like to try and sample again. Is anyone else familiar with it?
In addition, I decided to buy some more whiskey for myself today pretty much on a whim. I ended up getting a bottle of Tullamore Dew; it was nice when I tried it a while ago, so it'll make a good addition to my collection (if you can call it that yet).
And since I don't actually drink a lot (or often) and thus am generally a fan of smaller bottles, I also put the "Strong" Classic Malts selection (consisting of 0.2l bottles of Lagavulin's 16-year old, Talisker's 10-year old and Cragganmore's 12-year old) on my birthday wishlist. I know I like the Lagavulin quite a bit, and the Talisker's nice enough; presumably, I'll also like the Cragganmore.
Any whisk(e)y-related news from anyone else? Don't be shy, post away! :)
