    I prefer Laphroaig, and the 15 year-old is a favorite. The 18 is even better, but not often available hereabouts.

    It is a lovely whisky to be sure but it is cask strength so if you are unaware, the alcohol burn might take your breath away. A tear of water will open it up to let the flavours come out......At the moment I am supping a Lagavulin 8 year old.....What a magnificent whisky this is ..... My favourite is the Lagavulin 16 year old. The 8 year old is very unlike the Lagavulin 16 year old in all regards ......so now I have two favourite Whiskies

    I cannot speak for Allen, but many over here would consider Highland Park 12 as one of the best.

    Highland Park 12 has a wonderful oak smell (reminds me of a dockside warehouse, the timbers having absorbed seawater and salt air). Going down, it has a smoky burn -- peaty, but not too peaty. You can count me among those that, as Jock said, consider it one of the best.

    When my daughter got married, she gave me a bottle of Highland Park 21 year old as a rehearsal gift. She knew nothing about whisky and chose it simply because it was bottled in the year she was born. To me, nectar of the gods! It lasted me about five years, only brought forth on special occasions and consumed neat from a very small silver cup. I've tried the Highland Park 12, too, and concur with the remarks above.
