Anders, thanks for sharing the breadth of your experience! It's VERY helpful.
Also good to know that I don't have to run around and track down a specific year now!
Speaking of Distiller's Editions, have you tried the one by Talisker? I just bought one the other day...
Yes, I have indeed. For the moment I have the 1986 and 1988 vintages.
I actually prefer the standard 10 year old to this one. Don't get me wrong, this is a fantastic malt but I believe the strong flavours that are so typical for Talisker are being somewhat concealed in the Distillers Edition. It's a bit more toffeeish and rounded than the 10y.
If you can get it, try to get a hold of the 18 year old. In my opinion the very best Talisker has produced and amongst the best whiskies overall.
