I am fairly new to scotch whisky and I am looking for advise. I have tried the basic offerings from Laphroaig, Glenfiddich, Glenmorangie, Bowmore, and Glenlivet. I have tried several step up bottles including Balvenie doublewood 12 yr and either Glenfiddich or Glenlivet 18 yr (I guess I better start keeping track) with my last 2 being Glenmorangie port wood 12 yr and Glenlivet French Oak 12 yr. But my favorite still is Laphroaig 10 yr and I have bought 2 or 3 bottles of it and have been eyeing the Laphroaig 15 yr the last few times I have been at the liquor store. I am looking for other brands that have a similar heavy peat taste (if that is a correct description of what I am enjoying in Laphroaig) to try. I am open to suggestions and thanks for any input.
