Which Malt to put in Nick Brown's morning porridge!

Which malt should we slip into Nick Brown's morning porridge to get a BIG reaction?

Octomore Oat Flakes, naturally.

I think someone should release peat flavoured oatmeal. Bruichladdich, i'm looking your way.

Oh you devils! I've found Nick's comments on many of the less mainstream malts very helpful . If I had to pick one it would be Ardbeg 1975 for sheer unadulterated peatiness. It will be interesting to see which one Nick would choose.

I'm ever so flattered to have earned a Poll all to myself.

I don't dislike peated whisky and cut my teeth on it, although I think my whisky life has been more fulfilled since I discovered other styles too. Of those listed, I would be torn between Laphroaig 10 (although, like Viz magazine, it's officially not as good as it used to be), Ardbeg 10 or Laga 12 (which I haven't tried).

I currently have a couple of peaty whiskies on the go - a Benromach Traditional; an OMC Laphroaig 17; Bowmore Voyage; and Te Bheag. In recent months, I have enjoyed Ledaig 15; Black Bottle; and Ardbeg 1977. I had a bottle of Jura Superstition which I didn't really like as it didn't taste very well integrated and a G&M Cask Strength Ardmore which was OK, but not as good as the SMWS 66.16. I often try peatier whiskies at SMWS as I like to try drams that I wouldn't normally drink, and have had some very peaty Bowmore there.

At the moment, I have four very malty whiskies on the go - Littlemill 8; Dailuaine SMWS 2000 bottling; Craigellachie SMWS 2001? bottling and a Cadenheads Glen Grant bourbon cask. They are all a bit similar, although with subtle differences, so it is possible to overdose on other styles too.

As to whether I have a sense of humour - that's really for others to judge.

How about some of this new stuff from the 'laddie boys - Usquebaugh-baul. I suspect it will be quite enough Islay for most folk, by the sounds of it!
