I definitely think it is worth trying, but I would opt for a tasting before buying a full bottle. I say this because I think the general consensus around here would be that the 18yo is even better and can be obtained for less money than the 175th. I liked the 175th and I think it is a good whisky, but I would choose the 18 over it. If you like Talisker and decide to buy the bottle, I don't think you will be disappointed. That price seems about right, but not a real bargin (at least in my neck of the woods).
