Very Pleasing Introduction to A Select Few Peated Wonders
30 October 2018
'What better introduction to the peated singles, than buy this gift box, and test them out one by one?' I wondered; or at least I did, until I could resist temptation no more...
On receiving this box, this adventurer to the world of whisky (& whiskey) could not have been more pleased with what he received: Each whisky is unquestionably and uniquely different; And frankly, the subtleties of comparing each with each other is a pleasure in and of itself.
Two of the whiskys - The Laphroaig and the Connemara are significantly 'peatier' than the other two. And, if you like your whisky to be unreservedly 'smoky' - you'll love either. I must confess, though, to preferring the subtler smokiness of both the Bowmore 12 and the Ardmore Legacy: Each is a little less smoky, yet are still full of sublime flavours which (when taken in moderation, as is of course recommended) lift the soul.
With all thanks to the treats within this very gift set, my next stop will be undertaken in the presence of yet another Bowmore 12. After all, when you too experience the delights therein - could you, for a moment, blame me? ;-)
5/5 for sure.
