What about relative to the Talisker?

As you further your exploration, you may change the view on adding water. For the most part, the bottles you were trying are not worth adding water but when you start getting cask strength whiskies you might find that water is appropriate. I've had many whiskies north of 60%
Im sure I would if one could actually find cask strength varieties here in South Africa.
