I took the liberty of reading a bit about it online yesterday, and your
notes about smoky peat-ness and silk are absolutely confirmed. Seems the
water flowing through the peaty Scottish soil adds that flavor. Very
interesting! I'll keep you posted on my progress. ;-)

When the time comes and you take the Lagavullin plunge you'll find it has a
rather smokey Peat aroma, but do not be deterred. As it's the taste that
really counts and after the first sip the aroma wont make any difference,
but smell better. :-)

So sip it, not down it like blended scotch. A simple sip, enough to get a
good taste and it should be as smooth as silk.

Some folks like to slightly touch it with water to soften the flavour or
open it up as they say. So if you feel the taste is a tad strong, remember
just a slight dash of water.  And I'm sure you'll enjoy the extremely fine
single malt of the God's! ;-)

So dear lady please let the crew know when you've enjoyed your first
Lagavullin! :-)
