Sorry to disagree Elagabalus, but I voted Talisker 18 as well. A truly great scotch that hits most of the flavor profiles, a little sweetness, some smoke, a little pepper and salt. Plus it has a smoothness to it that is nice. You don't have to try the Talisker 10 (while good on its own merits) to appreciate and like the Talisker 18.

Lowland whiskies are not inferior, they are juts different. Often lighter and more floral.
Very good they can be, too.
