    Ardbeg 10 v Shieldaig 14

    I've been on a break from the Islay whiskies for a while, just tonight revisiting them, going back and forth between

    Ardbeg 10

    Shieldaig 14

    What say you? They're distinctively different, that's all I know. I'm no connoisseur.

    It would be cool to hear your impressions.

    Ardbeg 10 would be a tad young for my pallet, but still a nice drop. I canít say that I have come across Shieldaig whisky. Is it new to the scene?

    It's from Ian Macleod - but otherwise I am not familiar with it.

    I guess Tamdhu and Glengoyne are among their better know brands.

    I looked up Shieldaig, looks to be a Total Wine thing, a lower-priced Islay single malt.

    Looks like the reviews are meh.

    Never mind the reviews, did YOU enjoy the taste? Thatís really what matters.

    That is funny!!

    I've only seen shinty at our Pleasanton Highland Games, every year a team flies out from the Highlands to participate, very cool, they're all Gaelic speakers.

    Yes the taste is fine, however I've got so used to the Speysides it's a bit of a shock going back to the Islays.
