Ardbeg 1990/2006 Airigh Nam Beist (46%, OB)
C: Light gold, clear.
N: Sweet, peat, malty, earth feel, bog. dilute get more flwoer feel.
P: Burning, robust, hot, Very Ardbeg, mid-palate, Medium body, finished long. Salty.
C: 90 points. Simple but sweet andenjoyable. Good for everyday's dram, but as it is comparing expensive maybe 10yo would be a better choice. Finished very long, good for ice. 相當不錯的一支酒, 很像1977的感覺, 開瓶一段時間表現不錯.我從蘇格蘭帶回來的, 不過似乎大家都已經郵購進來了, 聽說有平行輸入會進來.
Lagavulin 1988/2004 Distillers Edition (43%, OB)
N: Peat, sulfer, dried fruit, layered, docomposed fruit.
P: Dried, peated, medium body, short finish. fruity, sweet, salty.
C: 88 points. dilute would be too weak in strength. Straight would be very enjoyable. 每次喝Distillers Edition都會想起早期那支1979,不過也會想起後來再開的時候似乎沒有印象中美好. 忘記是誰給的, 感謝一下不知名人士!
Lagavulin 12yo Special Release 5 (57.7%, OB, 2005)
C: Light yellow.
N: Light, Iodine, sea, very peaty. cookie at back.
P: Young, burned in front.Peated bitter, medium finish.
C: 90 points. Dilute get more Leave/flower feel. Also more Iodine, simple, straight, robust, But I just like it. 幾個版本的12yo Lagavuline都很棒喔! 這支sample似乎是Lazy帶來我這裡的時候裝的, 最近發現聚會的時候太認真聊天,以致於太不認真寫紀錄, 有點糟糕.

C: Brown, red.
N: very rum, grain, a little bit honey, very sweet, flower, malty, very similar to good single malt.
P: Matured, old, fatique, medium finish.
C: 82 points, not bad. 老實說對於Rum沒有什麼研究, 也沒什麼感覺, 這種老蘭姆給我喝還真是浪費了, 感謝B大與他的荷蘭朋友.
