steveprentice : One of the peatiest, but not the peatiest. 😉 I've got a spare bottle somewhere! 😃

webspul : I'll be there...
steveprentice : @webspul Will you?! Well jealous. :-)
larsa_eriksson : I'll be there two weeks before #badtiming?
dpuglisi : Dying to visit my three favorite distilleries, during Ardbeg day would be awesome!
webspul : We have ardbeg day at the whisky club in holland ....
steveprentice : @larsa_eriksson I did just that last year, missed the Feis by 2 weeks. The silver lining of doing that is that you don't fight the crowds and often get personal or at least very small group tours. 😃
larsa_eriksson : @steveprentice to be honest, I'm glad that I finally will be there. Of course it would be great under the festival but I'll save it for the next visit 🙋
steveprentice : @larsa_eriksson Exactly! That's what I think too. 😃

smfoushee : @thedubhglasd the world wide #whiskytrade is alive and well!
smfoushee : @jasminkliko I think I'm going to buy a bottle of Supernova instead, but thank you for the offer!
thedubhglasd : Growing by the day!
smfoushee : @vincentdg I forgot to mention, check with @edenside to see if he can get you a bottle of Alligator from the distillery if you're out locally.
edenside : @smfoushee @vincentdg Alligator is no more! As far as I know it's not going to be made again. It's auction sites or a good friend!
steveprentice : I'm yet to try Alli, but have a wee sample in the cupboard I think so looking forward to seeing what the fuss is about. Annoyed I didn't buy a bottle at the distillery when I visited, as @edenside says... It's all gone now!
kasekrainer : Supernova for me hands down. Can't find it online or in the shops anymore :(
thomasrenton : Nice #Slainte

smfoushee : @theague never had a blood and sand, sounds delightful 😄 what's in it?
paulgilmore : Nice!!
steveprentice : What ratio mix, mostly gin with a dash of Ardbeg?
smfoushee : @steveprentice pretty much, typically a smokey martini is just 2.5oz of gin, with a splash of scotch (0.5oz) in a mixer filled with ice. Shake, then pour (mixer strains out the ice).
steveprentice : Cool, will have to try at some point! (When I actually have some gin)
bhcheeze : Thanks for the info!
tired170 : Glad to see that you make a martini the way God intended for them to be made, with Gin
smfoushee : @tired170 😄 have to make it with something that will add flavor. Vodka martinis are a bit underwhelming.

steveprentice : @acquafortis I'm quite a big peat head so for me it's strong and powerful which I enjoy, usually I don't like it too sweet, so this one's on the border for me, but just on the right side so it's fine. 😃
acquafortis : I am a peat head too but found the alcohol overpowering the peatiness, leaving basically nothing of that mellowing fulfilling taste.
steveprentice : @acquafortis I can totally see what you're saying there, I kind of agree... I wouldn't have it as an early evening dram where I want to appreciate everything... But as a late night dram I just wanted something really powerful to punch me, and it did the trick perfectly. 😃 What's your fave at the mo, still love a good Caol Ila? (I do!).
acquafortis : Yes a good Caol Ila is still my fave!!!!!
kmatlack01 : Mmmmmm peat.
subevent : Ardbeg is my favourite...but I'm far less educated in the world of great whiskys... 😊...I know I like peat though! 😊
liquid_culture : One could say, you seized the "Day".

jasminkliko : Vad snabbt! Väntar fortfarande på mina! Har du provat?
cjthysell : Beställningssortiment?
larsa_eriksson : @jasminkliko ja, det gick fort. Korkade den ena igår och konstaterar att jag behöver köpa fler flaskor :-)
larsa_eriksson : @cjthysell Japp :-)
jasminkliko : Asså den var så bra! Hur står den sig mot Alligatorn i i smak och rökighet?
larsa_eriksson : Jag är ju inte Jim Murray, men jag tycker den smakar mer än alkigatorn medan röken är ungefär densamma. Jag blev förälskad :-)
larsa_eriksson : @jasminkliko har du fått dina flaskor än?
jasminkliko : Tyvärr inte! Väntar fortfarande!

sterlingnoah : Thanks @boozedancing! I'll try to locate that article. Will try the sampler. Do you get @Stranahans whiskey (made here in CO) or Leopold brothers whiskey out where your at?
sterlingnoah : *you're
boozedancing : @sterlingnoah We definitely get Stranahans. Had it several times. Great stuff! Dunno about Leopold, but my neighbor picked up som Breckenridge Whisky. Fantastic!
phunk_h0u53 : Waiting for a good time to open a bottle of Uigeadial. Worth every drop?
boozedancing : @phunkh0u53 Definitely worth it! That Whisky has it all going on.
andymcsween : I love this whisky!!
boozedancing : @andymcsween Me too! Great stuff.

Ardbeg Day [56.7% ABV] Nose ~ Toasted oak and ginger notes practically leap from the glass, assailing the nose, leaving behind a spicy wake flowing with brown sugar and a hint of toffee. Taste ~ It sits dryly on the tip of the tongue like a snake poised to strike and then releases a backdraft style explosion of flavor - ginger and cinnamon spice infused with hint of sweetness. The release peaks revealing the typical smoke and peat notes Ardbeg fans have come to love. Finish ~ A long, hot finish, not peppery, but leaving behind just a whiff of fruitiness that seems to be hiding within its 56.7% bottling strength. Overall ~ To quote my friends from across the pond, this is a cracking good whisky. The high bottling strength is quite welcomed, but at over 6% ABV higher than last year's Alligator this is an expression you might want to add some water to in order to really experience everything it has to offer. While there are some similarities with last year's Alligator release, 'Day' has a personality all its own, albeit a seemingly more youthful and explosive one. And while I gave the Alligator Committee Release from last year a mark of 94/100, this year's 'Day' - due to it's less balanced presentation - gets a mark of 92/100. #igwhiskytasting #whiskymarks #singlemalt #scotch #whisky #whiskey #ardbeg #ardbegday #alligator #glencairn #islay
vincentdg : Awesome review and a great idea for #igwhiskytasting
vincentdg : I'm gonna have to sort out my committee details as I knew nothing about 'Day'
steveprentice : Great review, glad you're using our language, cracking good whisky indeed, hehe. Glad you didn't say 'stunning', I'm on the war path over that word. 😉 I'm pretty much an Ardbeg virgin, so very interesting to read your comparisons! 😃
smfoushee : @vincentdg @endrem @steveprentice thanks guys, and thank you participating yesterday, I hope everyone enjoyed Ardbeg Day.
jasminkliko : Super review! Reading it was a joy for a dram fan!
smfoushee : @jasminkliko thank you, did you have a good Ardbeg Day?
jasminkliko : It was a great day! Even though i had to leave gothenburg city to celebrate a birthday. At a bar here in Gothenburg you could try the Ardbeg day Whisky! Hopefully I will get a new chance tomorrow evening! I saw your new posts with left hand! Hope I get a chance to try it! Tomorrow I hopefully will get my hands on Brewdogs Abstrakt 09! Will see tomorrow what the day holds for me!
