Well, after reading all the great reviews, I was tricked into trying another Islay. People can't say enough good things about this stuff. So I went for it. Damn - smoke, smoke, smoke. Too much for a Speyside wussy like me. I guess if you like Lag 16, you'll really dig this stuff. I just can't enjoy the other aspects of Islays because the smoke is so prominent. Brrrrrrrrr-you islay lovers are hardcore.
Lag 16 and this have convinced me I can't get on the Islay bandwagon. That being said, at least I made a noble effort to try something new. I don't think I'll try Supernova.
Nonetheless, I'd love to hear from the folks who love this stuff.
I'll sit back and enjoy my Balvenie 21 while I read your comments.
. Mmmmmmm, smooth, creamy, yummy, so good I don't want to swallow it, this is why I love SMSW.
