Let me throw in a vote for the 2001 Whiskyship Valinch then. And when I run out of that, I guess a Fifteen 2nd Ed. will do in a pinch..
Personally, no it's not that as I'm a big fan of a lot of unpeated / lightly peatd whiskies. Just not a huge fan of Bruichladdich. Would prefer Bunnabhainn to Bruichladdich. It's just that Laga and Laphraoig happen to be me farourite Islays (and in fairness to your obversation, probably my favourite peated whiskies, or certainly 2 of my top 3.)
