This Islay-brew is one of my favourite single malts. To very many it seems to taste too peaty and 'medical', 'like petrol', I have heard it described by (former) friends, but to me it just has everything a whisky ought to have. From about the late 90s the ten year old has sadly deteriorated, meaning that it has become less complex and strong so that today the 15 year old is, what the ten year old once was. Speaking of which, I haven't bought one for over a year: maybe it is time to re-assess.
