I am looking for a smokey oolong. I don't mean smokey like Lapsang Souchong but I have heard of oolongs having smokey charistics like scotch. I have tried a few oolongs but none brought any smokey tones.

I agree with Mocha. Many oolongs from Wuyi mountain in China are heavily roasted and develop a charcoal/smoke flavor, and Shui Xian is an example of such a tea.

The tea named "Wuyi Ensemble" from Adagio is a Shui Xian, so I would try that if I were you. I haven't had it myself so I can't vouch for its smokeyness, but it's worth a shot.
