Thread Name: BS: Question about Scotch
Subject: RE: BS: Question about Scotch
There are two newish Taliskers around, neither of which can hold a candle to the original Talisker 10-y-o. They're called Talisker Storm and Talisker Skye. Don't waste yer money. Go for the real thing. When it comes to Laphroaig, however, I love both the original 10-y-o and the Quarter Cask. In my opinion, Laphroaig Select is an inferior beast. Mrs Steve bought me a bottle of Ardbeg Uigeadail for our 40th wedding anniversary. Without question, it's the finest malt I've ever tasted. I never, ever put water in my whisky and I'd rather hack off my family jewels with a rusty machete than put ice in it.
