I splurged irresponsibly today on two single malts: a Talisker 10-year and a Strathisla 12-year. Unfortunately, to my taste, the Strathisla has a minty high-note, which I do not like, preferring a deeper, golden taste. The Talisker is much closer to my liking, with a great earthy nose, but it is still not Royal Lochnagar. The store had a special sale offer on the Glenlivet 18-year, and it looked golden and delicious in the bottle. Is it recommended?
