Which Islay scotch would you choose?

I'd choose Ardbeg Uigeadail, but I have a closed bottle Laphroaig of 18 which I've not tried just yet.

The Laph is a completely different beast from the Oogy. It's subtle, refined and wonderful.

Not that I don't like Uigeadail :)

Must say at the moment i'd choose the Laphroaig 18yo over the other three as , apart from the recently tasted 2013 25yo , i'd say it was my Favourite Laphroaig expression and it's a cracking dram .

I definitely have to choose the Laph 18. Oogies today are much more smoky and lack the sherry sweetness. Lag 16 seems to be in that same vein today.
