This was one of the first ones that I sampled at the bar when I first began my single malt quest. My first impressions rated it as a 69 and "downright repusive". I heard that it was an aquired taste and I did not believe that at all. Then after ourchasing three heavily peated bottles and a few smoky ones, I gave Talisker 10 another try at the bar, but right after a glass of Bowmore 15. Voila! I no longer hated this one, but I still would not buy a bottle because it is just too swwet for my tastes. I do like the smoky flavor, though. So, try and give any extreme tasting ones another chance some time later, and your opinion may change. However, in the case of Laphroaig 10, my opinion went from bad to worse the second time around.
