As far as presents go, he'll never forget the corry. That I can assure you!
I'm floored at the thought of Lagavulin and Laphroaig being too much alike and wonder if you shouldn't try them again. Worlds apart for me, although some common ground is there, can't even imagine accepting one as an alternative for the other.
Same goes for the Ardbeg comparisons - I love all three and if I were to see your thinking that the Uigeadail is a watered down Corryvreckan, hmm, I'm going to have to do a side by side again, but maybe so.
However the 10 to me is simply the base for the others, and when I need a plain, non-complicated sip, this is still my preference, even over both the others, depending on mood.
However, the Corryvreckan for sure, for Ardbeg lovers.
