Sounds great! I have only tried the 10. Is it worth $55 for me to try the 15 at my local store?

For aftertaste Laphroaig is fab.
For first taste Caol Ila and Lagavullin are great.
I've not drunk Bunnabhain and only had one glass of Ardbeg.

But the king of this kind of whisky that I've tasted, is Talisker, which is of course from Skye. An Islay whisky by proxy perhaps. :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P :P

You make a good point about rating a whisky on foretaste versus aftertaste. I am drinking a dram of Frog 10 and I agree with you, the aftertaste is yummy!
