    Let us know what you think. I'm interested in what your opinion is on a direct comparison between the two.

    With regard to the Ardbeg 10 vs the Laphroaig QC.

    I like them both. Both heavily peated, so if you don't like that I would stay away for both.

    I thought that the Ardbeg was lighter bodied than the Laphroaig. The Laphroaig was bigger and more oily/medicinal.

    The Ardbeg was a little smoother.

    Adding a little water (very little) to both, the Laphroaig opened up more than the Ardbeg and seemed a little more complex.

    Both had a good long finish but the Laphroaig was longer.

    In general I like the heavily peated whiskies and I like both of these and will have both in the cabinet. I prefer the Laphroaig but the majority of my guests went with the Ardbeg as they thought the Laphroaig was too medicinal for them.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Perfect sense. I actually have both in my cabinet, but am still new to the scotch thing. I'm just soaking up as many opinions as I can get.
    Of the three bottles I have (Ardbeg 10, Ardbeg Uigeadail, & Laphroaig QC), I like the Ardbeg 10 best as an everyday scotch. The Laphroaig QC is great, but I think is really dependent on what's been on your palate right before you drink it.

    Thanks for posting your thoughts.

    That's a lot of beer, I am guessing you do all-grain and have a pro set up? Reminds me of the Midwest catalog pro section. Or do you have three carboys and are making different types of beer?

    My sentiments exactly!

    However, tonight is just a 6 of Leffe.

    I am going non-traditional on NYE. I plan to crack open my second of three 750ml bottles of Biere Abbaye de Gembloux that I snuck back with me in November. In the meantime, i and frying up some breaded veal McScallops with prosciutto and stinky cheese for dinner.
