Bullocks. The MacAllan, hands down.
"Talisker 10 vs Bowmore 12: Talisker 10, but to be honest, I haven't tried Bowmore 12, only Bowmore Legend."
No way. Bowmore 12 is not on my favorites list, but it is less offensive and harsh than the Talisker 10.
Hahaha! Yes, different strokes. I find the Macallan 12yr Sherry Finish to be on the boring side, with little in the way of complexity or refinement. Highland Park beats it on every matrix except smoothness, but it is Highland Park's character that I find so appealing. I also gave it to HP, because even at the 18yr level, I prefer HP18 over Mac18.
