Tonight is another one I have been planning for some time, a heavyweight peat smack down, Islay V the rest.

Glen Garioch 1971 Full proof 59.6% Samaroli
Ardbeg 1976 25 year cask 2390 LMDW 53.1% OB
Longrow 1974 56% bottled 1987 Samaroli
Caol Ila 15 year Manager`s Dram sherry 63% OB
Ledaig 1973 14 year 56.3% Sestante Castle Label
Laphroaig 1967 27 year cask 2957 50.1% Signatory dumpy
Port Ellen 10th Annual Release 1978 31 year 54.6% OB
Brora 4th Annual Release 1975 30 year 56.3% OB
Lagavulin 1976 37 year 51% OB

Some of these are the highest ranked in their respective distilleries or are well regarded. I picked the Port Ellen and Brora as both at the highest ranked from the annual release series.

Not sure if I will do the last 3, we will see if my palate holds up but I will nose all 9 and rather than , as I have done before, do 2 or 3 tastings I will just do the palate in one go and enjoy them in order.

Result:-

Out of a H2H tonight this was the result.
Longrow 1974 56% bottled 1987 Samaroli
Glen Garioch 1971 Full proof 59.6% Samaroli
Ledaig 1973 14 year 56.3% Sestante Castle Label
Brora 4th Annual Release 1975 30 year 56.3% OB
Lagavulin 1976 37 year 51% OB
Port Ellen 10th Annual Release 1978 31 year 54.6% OB
Laphroaig 1967 27 year cask 2957 50.1% Signatory dumpy
Caol Ila 15 year Manager`s Dram sherry 63% OB
Ardbeg 1976 25 year cask 2390 LMDW 53.1% OB
