Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I'm seeing a lot of Ardgerg, is that because it's the most comparable to Laphroaig?
I'm thinking I'm gonna go with the Ardbeg Uigeadail. Sounds like something he'd love.
Islay Peat: I might also spring for the Ardbeg Airigh Nam Beist. I live in Alaska USA, so the selection is limited here, but I did find someplace online: The Whiskey Place, that has it in stock and can ship to me.
