What is everyone drinking these days?  I just discovered the Laphroaig brand.  Excellent stuff.  Really smoky taste with a great finish.

Woodford Reserve.

Yes Christopher, Caol Ila is definitely one of the finest single malts around, but the Caol Ila distillery is owned by Diageo, a British multi-national alcoholic drinks company. The Laphroaig distillery is owned by Beam inc. -- an American spirits company.

Like you, my preference in whisky is for the peaty flavours of the Islay Malts: Lagavulin, Laphroaig, Ardbeg and others. They are truly unique; and Islay Malts are without doubt the most richly flavoured of all whiskies, and once tasted nothing compares.

Glenmorangie because I prefer something a little smoother.

I'm more of a bourbon drinker myself, but i do fancy a few fingers of The Famous Grouse now and then. Not exactly high-class, but very smooth and a nice addition to a good book. If i'm going to splurge, i have to go with one of Glenfidditch's offerings. Love the 18-year, when i can find it. So hard to find a good Scotch in this part of the country.

The Dalmore - never fails to please.

I like Woodford Reserve, Knob Creek, or Maker's Mark, personally. Over ice.
