A lot of folks here seem to love the islays, while I think they are a little too peaty. Once in a while I enjoy my Lagavulin, but normally Talisker is as far as I'd like to go (I'm a nonsmoker).
I wonder if your likings have to do with your smoking habits, so here we go: Are you a smoker? (new years eve doesn't count!)
Well, actually I prefer if you would tell it in a comment. It would probably help us to evaluate your comments on peaty whiskies!
