We'd meant to go to Islay (pronounced roughly "EYE-lah") on our trip, but the ferry schedules didn't cooperate. So, I was very pleased to find that Talisker had the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition. (None of the stores we stopped in had any.)
Last night was the first time opening the 1984. We had a little of the remaining 1980, and then tried the 1984. It was somehow... better.
