I'm trying it as I'm typing this. Very nice nose of peat and smoke. Round and sweet on the palate. Highly enjoyable.
I think it's clearly better than the Talisker 10 (fuller and bigger), but given its price, perhaps the more relevant comparsion would be against the 18, but since I've never tried one...
I think the bottom line is that it's a very nice whisky, but I don't know that it's worth its price in the US, which is 100 USD. I'd rather spend my money on a Lagavulin DE or save up and get a 1985 Macallan 18. However, if someone insisted on giving me one as a gift, I certainly wouldn't turn it down or trade it in!
It would make a nice addition to anyone's collection.
Hope this helps.
