McCarthy's vs Lagavulin 16
I've got a bottle of McCarthy's Oregon Single Malt on order and will hopefully be in receipt of it within a few days. Once in hand, I plan to do a H2H tasting with my Laga16.
McCarthy's is made in the Islay style and has been compared to the Lagavulin 16. They import their peated malt from Scotland.
In addition, the McCarthy's SM was rated as best small batch whisky by Jim Murray in his Whisky Bible in, I believe 2006.
Seems like a natural B2B duo.
