I really like good scotch and like you I only buy the good stuff once in a while. Glennrothes. It is by far my favorite and it is in the $50 range so it wont hurt ya too bad in the pocket. It will be about 16 years depending on store. I also like a good Tequila
TALISKER is known for its unique spicy flavour with an above average peat content (while not as peaty as an Islay malt). The high phenol level and distinct taste may prove "challenging" for the casual whisky drinker. This is especially true in the 10 year old version, while the 18 year old has a less dramatic, more subtle flavour. In 2007 Talisker 18 year old won "Best Single Malt In The World 2007" at the World Whiskies Awards.
