Knockando 1995 12 Year old - Whatever Knockando...
...several other distilleries can do better. A little bit sharp, a little bit sweet, but nothing special, but that's probably because I favour a dark peaty beast of a whisky, which this isn't.
Laphroaig 10 Year old - The Whisky of Champions
It's a golden peaty monster of a whisky. Smoky, rich and entirely glorious. Stop reading this and go and buy a bottle.
