All good choices!! Ardbeg and Laphroig are very similar with Laphroig being a little harsher. Love them both!!

Not to contaminate a goos scotch thread but I recently tried an Irish Whiskey that I LOVE .. and Im not an IW fan but this shit is life changing I tell ya .... Its called The Knot!! Cheap and fantastic!!! Shit its even good in hoppy IPA!!

Try it .. you WONT be disappoint ...

I had tried it before (as with a few others) but bought my first bottle today.

I will buy many more single malts, but damn this shit is good

Lagavulin hands down.

I also enjoy Talisker, Laphroaig Quarter Cask, Oban, and Macallan.

Balvenie DW here too. When I finish the 11 bottles I bought I'll try something else. I figure at my current rate I got about - 11 years.

I really like The Macallan - 15. Good balance of flavors and very smooth.

Good stuff, OP.

Try Edradour's various small-batch offerings.

Ardbeg 10 is my go to Scotch, with Laphroaig 10 a close second. Talisker comes up third.

I tried the Balvenie Doublewood and found it had too much "burn" for my taste, maybe I'm a pussy.

Maybe so, I don't know you that well at all, but I am open to good suggestions

Ive tried alot of fine single malt whiskies and the Balvenie Doublewood is def one of my favourites. It seems alot smoother than its 12 year old age would suggest.
