It is, Greg. I'd recommend it for anyone who really likes that smoky, peaty style. Laphroaig 10 is my go to Scotch. It is the sea.... Rough, wild, stormy... Nice! If I have a couple I'll still taste the salt on my lips in the morning...Originally Posted by NorCalBoozer
My alternate is Lagavulin 16 when I want something a little more "civilized" though that role is typically filled by Maker's or Forty Creek (for MUCH less $). I've tried several good Scotchs but those two are the only two I seem to replace. Tried a lot of things I've never seen here when we were in Scotland. I was so happy none of them "measured up"!
And you are right, for some reason Laphroaig 10 is pretty reasonably priced for a Scotch. I keep waiting for them to change that!
