This is getting harder to discern for me. It seems like all are constantly changing and some batches are better (for me) than others. For instance, Lagavulin 16 used to have a sweet, supple sherry component that is now missing though it does have lots of smoke now. At times Laphroaig has a wonderful green apple note. Certain notes such as melon is more or less prominent in Ardbeg 10 in different batches. And the prices have become much more comparable, at least in my neck of the woods, between the 3. Laphroaig is typically around 50 (Costco has it currently for 37 but that is the first time I've seen them carry this in years). Ardbeg 10 varies from 46 to 55. Lagavulin is around 65 to 75 however my local Costco runs it down to 56 about 4 times a year.
