I am a die-hard lover of all things Lagavulin and was thinking of exploring the world of Laphroaig. I was wondering which is the better of the two--the 10 year old or the 15 year old? Also, if anyone else can reccomend another good peaty Islay by all means feel free to contribute.
Slainte and many thanks in advance!

which should I buy next the 17 year old ardbeg or the 15 year old laphroaig?<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>
Whichever's cheaper! Both fine drams, but I think the Laphroaig 15 is probably a better version of Laphroaig than the Ardbeg 17 is of Ardbeg.
I still haven't had Laphroaig 15yo but will pick some up as I enjoy the 10yo.
The 10 is just what was mentioned, my go to for a rough around the edges affordable killer.
While we are on the subject of Peat and also Murray McDavid's came up, I can't say enough about the Bowmore bottling they have put out. That's got to be one of the heaviest peated Bowmores I have had and the richness of other uncharacteristic flavors almost says it's something of a blend. Islay with fruit and other aspects that are usually drowned out by heavy peat. And the price of this, as a private bottle is astounding.
but am designing whisky advertising campaign for a malt mixed with various flavours such as lime & ginger with spring water.
As far as I know it is a complete no-no to mix whisky with anything other than a little water, or is it??
Hopefully you knowledgable whisky drinkers can pass on some advice.
