Here is the relevant data:
I am currently board with malts like Glenmorangie and Oban (just finished a bottle of each), and I can't stands malts like Auchentoshan. I love the heavy peated malts (Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin) but that is all I seem to have on hand at the moment. I want a little variety . . . which would you pick?
what I have open:
Laphroaig 10yo CS
Highland Park 18yo
George T. Stagg
(I have three Ardbegs and two Lagavulins in the closet . . . but I am waiting on those for the moment )
This list above is what I have narrowed the field down to along with what I would pay locally. I think that there are times when price does make a difference. Maybe you think the Talisker distillers edition is great, but not worth $70 when you have a Clynelish in the running for about $46.
This is all just for kicks and giggles but I am curious to see what you have to say.
Hopefully you will eventually learn to appreciate subtler malts--you are missing a lot. I was a peat fiend once, too.
