Laphroaig Vs. Ardbeg

yossarian22 | Apr 28, 2011 10:11 AM

I've mostly only tried Speysides and the more common blends, but I would like to try a Islay. Laphroaig 10 and Ardbeg 10 are the two that are available to me and in my price range.. which do you prefer and why? Which do you think I would enjoy more as mainly a Speyside drinker?

Also, some folks have told me that what I want is the Laphroaig 10 cask strength.. and it would probably be affordable for me. My fear is that it will be too strong tasting and I want to sort of ease into Islays. Opinions?

I know, I know.. go to a bar and try some. But I really can't seem to find any bars within reasonable distance that have more than a few basic blends and Speysides.
