If I am forced to choose a single whisky that I would have to drink for the rest of my life, and that I would have to keep buying for the rest of my life ( money! always money! ) I would go closed eyes for Lagavulin 16 years old.
It is cheaper than Macallan, more tastier than Ardbeg, peatier than Bowmore and has the great nose of the three. It is peat, sweet malt, with a great thing on the nose that I associate with the Macallan Fine Oak, don’t know: perhaps vanilla? a bit of oak? citrus? floral? I don’t know, I just love it.
