Re: Whisky

jihad, fwiw i really like islay scotches but not a huge caol ila fan. it's not really that it's too strong but it just feels very sharp and shallow to me. a good islay lives up to its burn with complexity and depth imo. i'm far from an expert on this kind of thing, and i suspect it's mainly preference, but you're not totally alone on this one.
