    Please, keep in mind that the Airigh Nam Beist is (was) a vintage limited edition release. If you can find one grab one (or two or three). And, do not count out Bunnahabbhain, Bruichladdich or Kilchoman.... On average not as high a phenol count as Ardbeg, Lagavulin or Laphroaig, but some amazing bottlings are produced by them. And, the Bruichladdich Octomore is still the most peated whisky in the world, by far, even though I enjoyed the Supernova releases whilst available.

    if you could or can find Port Ellen, now a closed distillery have a snort or 3.
    Well worth the hunt
