As a Native Scot you should realise that "scotch" is a vernacular term for 
whiskey used by non-scottish people! what we are talking about here is 
finest Scottish whiskey (as opposed to that awful japanese stuff or similar.

If you like Lagavuillin, then try Laphroig, also made with the peaty water 
of the island of Islay (pronounced i-la)...not quite as "smokey" flavour but 
brilliant none-the-less.

My tipple....well I know an 18yr old Macallan cannot be beaten, its even 
better than the 25yr old version (according to the still-man at the 
distillery) The secret...they mature it in single-use sherry casks which 
impart a very distinctive flavour....try it ...YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPPOINTED 
but for heavens sake add only a tiny bit of water...NOTING ELSE, and 
certainly NO ICE!!!!

Enjoy,  its our national drink!
