    apart from laphroig, what would be an extremely peated recommendation? i need to change a bit. i tried recently a new, DTF only johnny walker line called "island green" and it was quite heavily peated but still elegant but i missed to buy it since i was in rush not to miss my flight. any recommendations?

    Caol Ila 12 Years, or if you want even more then Bruichladdich Port Charlotte Islay Barley is awesome

    Bowmore 17 or Ardbeg 15 have a nice peaty flavour without going over the top.

    Caol Ila is nice but not typical of the other Islay whiskys.

    Yes I thought it was good Grant, a fairly easy drinking Malt, just a good whisky

    Does it get pretty cold down there, Grant?

    If so, you may find that some of the red wine has perished... Also, check the dates. Most red wines sold in supermarkets are designed to be drunk young. They simply don't keep well for any more than 3 years. After that, it's quickly downhill all the way to becoming vinegar!

    If you take a close-up picture of the wine bottles/labels, I can advise you of what needs drinking ASAP and if anything needs chucked
