    • Talisker is soooo… much better.

      Laphroaig 10 Year Old is particularly monodimensional - very much a bucket of tar. Gave 70% of my bottle away. It didn't so much put hair on my chest as singe it off!

      Talisker still has distinct smoke/peat character - but you can taste so much more.

      It is like chilli to me. Like the flavour and a little warmth - but not so much that it overwhelms all the other components of the dish.

      • I get where you're coming from but I've found as you get used to more aggressively peated whiskys the more they open up. When I was chasing the peat monster a couple of years back (to the point where I found the Octomore 7.1 wasn't nearly peaty enough) something milder like the Ardbeg 10 had a lot more complexity - I could look past the peat to experience the creamy vanilla/oak notes.

        Eventually I decided imbuing the liquid expression of a Hebridean Viking raid wasn't great for my health (or wallet), so nowadays I do find peat a bit more overwhelming.

        • The correct amount of peatiness is such that the women retreat to the other end of the house when the bottle is opened.

        • "the liquid expression of a Hebridean Viking raid "

          Thank you for that. "Like lapsong souchong." didn't quite carry the full weight of the Talisker 10 year old single…

      • chilli absolutely kills my taste buds! Can't taste anything in a meal but chilli when it's in it.
