not fair - chap - chapess.
Perhaps a new link on the forums - eg "suggestions to buy" would be mroe fitting then these questions will be better placed
however Macallovich all are good but cost effectiveness comes into play for me. therefore ooglie is for me.

Suggest that those who don't like a topic leave it alone.

Good suggestion TH thats what i tend to do .
I'm quite happy to give an opinion on a choice if i have an interest in it and avoid one's that i don't favour .
I would go for the more expensive choice if i had the money available as....
(a) The Loti is the rarer of the 3 .
(b) The Loti contains 3 of the best years of production from Ardbegs past history (1974/75/76) .

You are quite right chaps apologies to the poster I've had a bad day. I havent tried any of these peaty ones but have heard that the Lagavulin is disappointing. Something to do with lost phenols and antiquity. Enjoy your whisky whichever you choose.

Said I'd had a bad day. My comments were about the Lagavulin 25 yr old although the age and phenol thing applies to all peaty malts. Depends how much phenols they start out with. I'm off to bed.

I've voted for the Oogie, if for no other reason than it's the only one of the three that I've tried.

George Foreman or Ernie Shavers? One beats you down from top to bottom until you don't want to stand up any more, the other hits you once in the face and you're out. Either way you are in for an interesting round. I prefer the Ardbeg Oogie because I found it to be a little more layered and well rounded. The Lag 12 seemed more aggressive and less complex, but still a serious contender.

I've never sampled the Loti and would love to hear more opinions on it.

I'll second Mr. T's suggestion as well. None of us drinks from the fountain of originality with every post. That new members will have the same or similar questions that other members have posted before is inevitable. That those same questions will elicit different responses later on is also inevitable, which is a big part of what keeps the forum from stagnating.

But the same questions from the same posters!? Frankly, I cannot believe that a poster genuinely wishes to buy one, and only one bottle of whisky and has the shortlist down to three whiskies, but then faces choice paralysis. Especially when the whiskies are in such different price brackets. And especially when the choice paralysis always involves the same whiskies. Why not have a single Islay Whisky thread in the tasting notes rather than knocking new and interesting discussions off the top of the forum by posting yet another stupid Islay poll.

Ernie Shavers - what a puncher. He very nearly knocked out Larry Holmes, with a single right (1979), but Holmes got up to score a TKO. Foreman - he polaxed Frazier and Norton and don't forget, he knocked out Moorer to regain the title well into his forties. Foreman for me.

I give the Lagavulin the nod.

I'm also with Lagavulin, but for the increasingly silly reason that it's the only one I've tried.
