Shelled out for the 'froyg 10 on friday afternoon and was absolutely blown away.
Laphroaig is much more medicinal than Ardbeg or Lagavulin, in my opinion.
Well, I'm sold.
Outside of Johnnie Walker's Labels and Diageo's Classic Malts, I haven't had much else. I plan on buying only single malts this year, and Islay sounds like a good place to start.
Lagavulin 16 never fails to deliver that velvety smoke; I had been bragging on it for a couple years now to friends before purchasing a new bottle. The latest batch is just as distinctive, as soon as you open it up, too...and somehow it drinks like its 40% abv.
I can't wait for them to try it out.
