For Smokey/Peaty Single-Malt Fans!
Article in the NY Times reviewing 20 single-malts from Islay:
Interesting article - but ranking Bowmore higher than Lagavulin 16 and Caol Ila? And where's the quarter cask? It's the best of the Laphroaigs.
I have 6 of the top 10 in my cabinet and mine would go:
Lagavulin 16, Laphroaig 18, Ardbeg 10, Laphroaig 10, Coal Ila 12, Bowmore 12.
Laphroaig Quarter cask would go just behind Lagavulin 16, though really it is a very close call with the 18 yr.
