    Dave, the Uigedail is a worthy contender. If you want to get really freaky, try the Lag DE against the Uigedail. Whichever way you go, make sure to even out the proof of the Uigedail to make it a fair fight.

    Good suggestion, thanks Trey. Is the Uigedail thin like the 10 year?

    To me, Uigedail has a nice "chewy" mouthfeel. "Thin" would not be in the vocabulary. At cask strength it's certainly more syrupy in texture than Lag 16.

    I know this because I just tasted a nip of each. At 10:45 AM. In my defense, I spit.

    Ha, thanks for the research! I will have to pick up the Uigedail and maybe a Lag DE.

    Which Water of Life Did You Purchase Today?

    I thought Lagavulin 16 was chill-filtered with caramel-color added. It had a thin mouthfeel to me and haven't purchased another bottle since my first one.

    That said, I'll be hunting down a Lag DE.

    The Lag 16 was much fuller than the Ardbeg 10 for me, despite the Ardbeg being non-chill filtered. No contest.

    Lag12 blows both out of the water IMO - should've bunkered a few more

    Lag 12 is possibly my favorite Scotch.

    Lagavulin Distillers Edition is good and the raisiny PX Sherry makes for a nice change of pace, however, it is a Lag light in that the peat is toned down and the complexity suffers due to the finishing. I reach for the DE when I want a more subtle Islay, and personally, I like it more than the Ardbeg Oogie. The 12 is decent, though it gives up the complexity (and greatness) of the 16 in favor of ratcheting up the peat and alcohol - if I am in the mood for a serious peat/smoke/alcohol bomb, I find I prefer the Corryvreckan instead.
