    No wonder I enjoy single malts.

    Although ... after a gay friend suggested that Laphroaig tasted oh so peaty ... like a crusty old jock strap ... that put me off Laphroaig for quite a few years.


    What sports cause a jockstrap to become peaty? Caber tossing [​IMG]?

    My wife discovered Laphroaig through my ordering it occasionally. She says it tastes like a fireplace on a cold night. Perhaps they are burning jockstraps in the fireplace.

    I almost never drink Scotch any more, and when I do it's always JW Black. I just don't have any interest in the malts. I did once, but very mild interest that soon passed.

    Neither did I when it comes to crusty old ones ... but it sounded unappitizing.

    Maybe my taste for forest fires is leading to a lifestyle change. Should I tell my wife?? Nevermind, I'll just start a new thread.

    Black is a noteworthy drink!

    Malts are an interest/obsession for sure. Like with all interests in my life, they will come...then go.

    That's almost exactly how I thought of it ... until my friend ruined everything by the mention of ... oh well.

    Damn ... now it will be another year before I can drink it again!

    Coal Ila tastes much more like a fireplace in my opinion. Its more ashy, whereas Laphroaig is medicinal (Gold Bond? I kid, I kid.).

    The friend who suggested this is a professor emeritis of Harvard and twenty years my senior. When he mentions things of this nature -- which fortunateoly isn't too often -- I typically defer to his age & academic status ... and just accept without questioning. It's so much easier ... and frankly ... we were already well into TMI territory from my point of view.

    On the other hand ... he can be quite amusing. Once he caught me staring at a youngish Berkeley coed. Before I realized he was there ... he tapped me on the shoulder ... noded in her direction and offered ... "Lunch?"

    Sounds interesting. How does it compare to Lag 16?

    I assume you are talking about the standard OB 12. If so, its not as complex as the Laga. It is less sweet, has more citrus and more smoke (but less peat).
