If you are an Islay fan, though maybe not a true Ardbeg guy/gal, you'll probably like it.
I tried it a few months back and found it very objectionable, but only had a single tasting and think it's probably worth going out with her again to see if there is anything worth pursuing after all, even if only a single enjoyable experience.
Some of my favorites in life have come from directions that didn't originally seem to be to my liking, so I'm willing to give it another go, for the team.

. It may not be the best Ardbeg I've had but it is a bloody good whisky.
...it was also well worth the £65 I paid for it, and that's the other thing I look at with Whisky : is the experience worth what I paid. Yes, so good all round
I really like the part I underlined and seeing others liking it so well just makes me want to try it again all the more.
