I am considering to jump to the CS level (All people here prefers the CS versions). Help me to decide my next taste.
LAGAVULIN 12 YEARS SPECIAL RELEASE
LAPHROAIG 10 YEARS CASK STRENGHT
My preference now is Laphroaig, because it´s cheaper and I haven´t tasted any laphroaig but, what´s the best in your opinion?
On the other hand, the sherry sweetness and depth in Uigeadail might just be what is missing in Ardbeg for you.
Therefore, you should buy the Laphroaig. Well, especially since you haven't had any Laphroaig yet.
But there are other CS Islay's besides the three you mention.
Caol Ila CS - NAS
Bowmore CS - NAS
Both are young pungent Islays
Even more pungent and young is the Ardbeg Very Young (CS)
Or the young peaty Bunnahabhain Móine 7yo, but may not be easy to find anymore.
And there are a number of young independent bottlings. One example would be the Royal Mile Whiskies "Young peaty one" which is a 6yo (or young) Bowmore at CS.
