    No. I can't taste any peat at all in Aberlour.

    Apparently it comes in at 3ppm phenol, compared to 35ppm for Lagavulin.

    Yeah I started out trying everything to dial in what I like. I've found that I have narrowed it down to Highland/Speyside regions mostly. I noticed that I would get really bad hangovers/headaches with just the smallest glass of some of the smokey/peaty single malts. Not something I really desire.

    If you care for something similar to the japanese stuff, I would definitely suggest trying some Aberlour. Really nice stuff there. Also try Kavalan as a Taiwan single malt.

    I'm always a fan of Laphroaig cask strength if you like a bold peat profile but with a little less maritime notes than Ardbeg. I think Laphroaig works better above 80 proof, so you can play with it starting at the cask strength.
