Living up to expectations

Laphroaig.  10 year old single malt scotch whisky.

Silver Reef casino has a new cigar bar.  I don't smoke cigars but my buddy and I were in there last night since he does and wanted to check it out.  I decided to treat myself to a glass of something and since the Laphroaig was there in the cabinet and I've heard a lot about it, I decided to give it a shot.

Wow.  Talk about living up to your billing.  Smoky, peaty, smooth.  An aroma of fruit.  A bit of salt.  After I was about halfway through Miles, the (what do you call the guy who works in the cigar bar?  Waiter doesn't seem right, attendant seems like a nursing home) guy who works there, brought out Michael Jackson's book on single malt scotches and showed me the entry for Laphroaig.

Seaweed, salt, gooseberry.

That is an excellent book. I bought it for my husband one Christmas.
