Oh, you like it
I've had the same feeling about a great many things in life, not just whiskies, and always felt that personal tastes were a forgone conclusion, but additionally, that there's no beneficial reason to suggest that there's something wrong with those who have preferences differing from our own.
Hence the ending of my post saying 'To each his own', and yeah, I like Lagavulin 16 a lot!

They are the most aggressive whiskies I've ever had.
If he likes the 16 year, THEN he could try the more aggressive 12 year.
Personally love both you suggestions (well, depending on which Ardbeg), but the Lagavulin 12 definitely struck me as aggressive to be sure. Not my taste, but I do notice more than a few who like it.
