Just shows how personal taste is - I find LQC one of the sweetest, if not THE sweetest, malts (and bl00dy lovely too!).
The way I often describe both the sweetness in malts and a dram in general is to coin Billy Connolly's phrase of a 'wee nippy sweetie', in that I find more of unique sweet taste experience as the alcohol provides what I would describe as an intense and burning sweetness. Indeed when I inform my 'trouble and strife' that I'm having a dram and offer her a drink (thankfully she's not into whisky!) I more often than not say that 'I'm having a wee nippy, sweetie'.
Anyway, I have a very 'sweet tooth' and as such seem to prefer malts which offer a more intense sweetness profile but one I don't seem to favour is Talisker 10, I find it very dry and peppery - hence it is one of the most popular malts of which I've never owned a bottle. I tried the 18 for the first time at the weekend and wow this one is remarkably different, just so much better and to me sweeter.
Good question though Crieftan and one I'm sure which will provoke much debate.
