Lagavulin 16. I'm picking up more of its unique character relative to Uigeadail. The peat comes across more as grilled fruits than the tar of Oogie, though it has ample smoke too. And its greatest virtue is balance, such that the flavors are integrated and take time to resolve, whereas Oogie is a study in contrasts. I don't know which I like more, but who cares...each is a classic in its own right.

Talisker 10. I finally openend the 200ml bottle (in a set with DE and 18) I've had for a year. Again, a unique peat presentation. While the smoke is subdued on the nose, it brings to mind rocks over a campfire. And the pepper...fantastically intense! I can only imagine what a young cask strength Talisker would do. I expect to open the DE and 18 the next couple nights and compare all three at least once before they're done.

Caperdonich 1996, Signatory Vintage 12yo. I am so digging this. Malt, honey, lemon, and herbs. Highly recommended (I picked it up for $47 a while back).

Glen Ord 1998, Signatory Vintage 8yo. Better as the 4th whisky of the night than the first.

Evan Williams black label. This bottle is going down fast.

At a bar with a severely limited selection:
Crown Royal Black - meh. I prefer the regular CR.
Jameson's. Not bad, not in the same ballpark as the 12yo.

Now home...
Talisker 18. Based on comments here, I sort of expected to like the 10 more, but this has greater complexity without losing too much intensity. I actually picked up more smoke on the nose tonight than with the 10 last night, surprisingly, but it may just be me. More fruit and greater depth overall than the 10, but you can't beat T10 for that fiery finish.

White Horse NAS. Nice blend, even a touch of smoke and peat.

Talisker DE, 1992-2005. Slight rubber accompanies the rocks-on-a-fire nose, sweetness arrives with time. The sherry finish doesn't contribute a lot of fruit (dried or otherwise), but plenty of sweetness on the edges of the tongue, with a hint of bitterness in between. Where's the pepper? Much subdued.

Overall, this is intriguing and enjoyable, even elegant, but it's not how I want my Talisker. I certainly wouldn't pay a premium over the 10, I'm not sure I'd even buy this again, though I have no complaints.

I'm opting for a pour of Benriach 15 Year Old Tawny Port Finish this evening.

PC6 & PC7 head to head the jury isn't out quite yet but the nose on the 6 is slot more fruity than the 7 they both taste about the same buy overall I think the 6 is going to be the winner..

Ardbeg Uigeadail while watching The Tudors... A bloody good whisky for a rather bloody period in history.

Ok I'm on the same page now, it's friday pm here but we just changed over to daylight saving last week which accounts for the missing hour This Laphroig cask strength is truly is a cut above the garden type 10 y/o only problem is the complaining about the smell from she who must be obeyed .she claims her Sauvignon blanc smells like peat

Macallan 12 Year Old... This one's actually improved as the contents of the bottle have diminished (and not owing to any inebriation factor, might I add).

Highland Park 15 Year Old Earl Magnus... Beautiful balance of the various elements here.

Both whiskies, by the way, paired exceptionally well with single estate dark chocolate from Madagascar.
