I didn't start out with typical starter whisky. I have yet to even taste a single drop of Fiddich, even after posting a sizeable collection. I traveled to Scotland, and asked for something campfire-ish. Laphroaig was my real dram. Next dinner I asked for similar to Laphroaig. I got the Lag16. All the smooth, silky smoke, and toasted flavors.

After I've tried several new things, I like to come back to this bench mark to see where my taste buds have traveled, and confirm where home is.

I'm finally looking into lighter whisky, and my newest taste has been a revelation. But I suspect Lagavulin will be calling me home again, and again and again.

For a lighter one, you might like the Lagavulin Distiller's Edition. It's more spendy but really well balanced and smooth, without as much bite

That's definitely something I hope to pick up if I ever get the chance. I can justify getting extra spendy for that. I need to try the 12 year old as well, just to round out my Lagavulin experience.
