Laphroig is the stuff, which is quite testicular, but the Ardbeg 10 is tremendous. Cheap Scotch in the Laphroig style would be Bowmore. Liquid campfire.
Edit: I'll also plug my favourite whisky, Yoichi 15.
I live in Japan, so I often see this on shelves, but I've never taken the plunge. I've read that the Yoichi 20 is supposed to be very good but its also around $150 so I've not sampled it.
I love Japanese Whisky. Yamazaki is my poison, although Suntory isn't bad either. Unfortunately, I don't think we have a local importer/distributer, so I only see it at select Japanese bars and restaurants at pretty steep markups.
