The Yamazaki 12 is certainly quite nice, although I only found out too late from my bottle that its one of those whiskys that needs lengthy exposure to air to mellow/ release its full potential. But Yamazaki 12 certainly offers some flavors not typically found in Scottish, Irish, or American Whiskys.
If you liked the Lagavulin then definitely consider giving Ardbeg 10 a try. I have not been disappointed in any Ardbeg I have ever had.
Thanks for the input. I ordered 4 bottles not too long ago and picked them up today. Unfortunately, the Highland Park 12 I ordered was out of stock and the store had to issue a refund. I'm a little upset, but I'm sure I'll get a bottle in the near future.
I guess I'll resort back to the Red Breast as that's what I originally had planned to get.
