English is not my original language, but I feel that I can communicate in the language even if I often do some misstakes.
But now I have to write a sentence in english that MUST be absolutely correct!
Is the follwing sentence absolutely correct?
"Laphroaig is considered to be one of the smokiest of all Scotch whiskies."
or is it better to write:
"Laphroaig is considered as one of the smokiest of all Scotch whiskies."
or should it be put some other way?
Thanks for all your help!

Your second sentence would sound better as "......is recognised as.......", but your first sentence is the best of the three.
