I forgot about that one.
While not as elaborate, I do add a teaspoon or two of water to the Scotch not to dilute, but to 'spread' the taste. This is sometimes effective when tasting dense malts like the Laphroaig 30; a little water helps bring out more subtle in-between flavors that are usually masked by intense medicinal cabinet/iodine signature of Laphroaigs.
Actually the Isle of Mull's Ledaig reminds me of Laphroaig, which has become a bit too peaty for my taste. If you ever get your hands on a Port Ellen (Lagavulin uses the Port Ellen maltings)......, and have you tried Caol ILa?
In my favorites, a forgot the Speyside's 15 Y Longmorn.
About 12 years ago, when Laproaig made a push into the US market, an English friend and I used to buy the stuff by the case from Trader Joe's.
Then, each bottle included the deed for one square foot of land on the Isle of Isla.
We used to joke, that we had enough deeds for a burial plot.
BTW, If there is a Trader Joe's / Aldi market in your area, they carry a number of private label bottlings, incl. the 10 Y Aberlour, and an 18 Y Maccallan.
