    In a society built on lies and illusions, he who speaks the truth is the enemy.

    An anecdote: Bladnoch is actually the start of Swedish whisky production. In 1955 Bladnoch replaced their pot stills. The Swedish wine and spirit monopoly company bought two of them and started making whisky. Not a success. A high peated blended whisky which was not pleasent. The production ended in 1970. But one pot is still in use distilling the base for a schnapps. It's stored in casks for short period to give it a whisky tone and then mixed with honey, raisins and herbs. A quite nice schnapps called 'Östgöta sädesbrännvin'- Barley schnapps from Eastern Gothia.

    A big ginger cat called Barley used to like to sleep in the container full of expensive scarves and was frequently shooed off only to return to comfy sleeping place a few minutes later!

    Sadly, there only are beer breweries around here, I would love to experience the smells in a whiskey distillery.

    Im no whisky professional by any means… I had my first experience with laphroaig 10 about a month ago. My first impression was wow this is so peaty, full of flavour, salt brine, smoke, and medicine…
    I was watching the professionals on u tube doing a comparison between the laphoaig 10 and the ardbeg 10 and in most cases the ardbeg won…
    I purchased a bottle of ardbeg today and was expecting the wow factor!!!
    46% proof and all the things I’ve started to replicate after the laphoaig…
    To the nose the ardbeg was devoid of the initial nose notes…. which I was sad about after hearing all the reports that this was the beast of peat….
    I swilled and awaited the full hit of this dram and was hit with pepper and a top heavy hit of smoke! That was all I could taste!
    There was absolutely no middle ground, no notes of bandade, Medicinal notes, no, oily notes of years spent in casks that gave it a maturity….
    As I’ve said in a beginner but the I am left really disappointed ….
    It. Old just be me but laphoaig has all the ingredients of the things I like! Depth, flavour, lingering notes that make one feel like you’ve spent wisely…
