What's the peatiest, smokiest scotch?

Well, I had to share this interested tidbit. I was in a state store and picked up a bottle of Laphroaig 10 that was on sale for 50or so bucks. When checking out the clerk asked me about the product. They had a return from an individual that said it smelled funny and tasted bad maybe.  The clerk thought the batch might be tainted. They asked me to smell the bottle and see if it was ok, since they were not a Scotch drinker. I smelled it and said yep that was what it probably smells like …a campfire.  I proceeded to buy the bottle and had the please of tasting it later on. It was a roaring campfire for sure… haa.haaa…..

I could not reply to the previous thread so I had to start this new one. I just wanted to say thank you to those you suggested Ardbeg 10 (Islay Single Malt)! I thought Mcclelland's Islay was smokey. Ardbeg is far superior. I happen to have both and was able to taste test them. I was blown away by the comparison.
