I had a good idea of what to expect here- an Islay-esque explosion of peat, smoke, salty surf, spice, and a beautiful, long finish. Turns out I was pretty spot-on! It really reminded me of the raw sea surf found in the Bunnahabain 12, mixed with a bit of Ardbeg 10 earthiness and the stinging pungent smoke taste of the Highland Park 12. It was delicious! It almost had a sort of "mischievous" taste to it, as if it was saying, "ohhh, you like me? Nobody else up here in Skye- why don't you come visit?" Good scotch for pirates or other maritime adventurers. The taste didn't stand out to me as much as Laphroaig or Bunnahabhain, but I look forward to trying other Talisker bottles.

Try the T18. It's even better. Your complaint about the "taste" of Talisker not standing out, is moot with the 18. It has great flavor and character that resonates deeply with the palette.
