I like the LE Arbegs like Uigedail and Alligator much more than their standard 10yo. I'm a fan of Bruichladdich's Octomores, but I'm afraid to say that I was really unimpressed with the Laphroaig 10yo and and Lagavulin 16yo. I did pick up a Binny's Duncan Taylor NC2 of a 13yo Laphroaig that is quite delicious. It just has a much finer point on the camphor/medicinal qualities that turn me off in the standard bottlings. Perhaps the higher ABV helps as well.
Yikes! Unimpressed with Laphroaig 10 and Lagavulin 16? You're in a small minority, my friend! Have you tried the Laphroaig Quarter Cask yet, Aaron? I really loved that one and found it even better than the Cask Strength, but I guess that finding would put me in the minority as well.
