Difficult to pick one above the other but Laphroaig gets my vote. A close 2nd would be the Ardbeg 10 year old and 3rd Glenfarclas 10 year old.

I have opted for Ardbeg but my very close second would be Laphroaig.

I have always had a taste for the Balvenie so it got my vote, although i would go for the Balvenie Double wood 12yo over the Founders Reserve 10yo.
If i was to go for one of the Islay malts in this selection it would have to be the Ardbeg.

I agree the peated Islays are not to my taste i prefer the sherried malts like Macallan.

An Islay malt would always be my first choice and the Ardbeg 10 year old is the best value for money Islay malt there is in my opinion.

The Glenmorangie 10 year old is a very good dram. I am surprised it hasnt got more votes as it is so widely available and i thought very popular.

I voted for the Balvenie 10 year old but to be honest i would have voted for the Aberlour 10 year old if it had been in the poll. I think the Aberlour 10 year old is an excellent whisky and excellent value for money.
