actually that was one of the things the guy talked about. apparently they put whiskey in barrels that used to hold the islay cask (hence balvenie peated cask), but i didnt know they already released the islay cask

Yes, it's the same concept, but the execution is worse this go around.

Big mistake. Those early 80's PEs are almost without exceptions boring. Which ones you pick up?

+1 on the other recommendations for Lagavulin 16 and Talisker 10.

If you want something less peaty, give Oban 14 a go.

A great non-Islay, non-Island, peaty dram is the Longrow CV. I love this bottle, and it is very reasonably priced.

At (or near) the price point of the HP 18, though, I'd look at Talisker 18, Ardbeg Corryvreckan, and Springbank 18.

Highland Park 18 year old and BenRiach 16 are my two favorites
