You know them, you love them. But only one scotch can win. Who will be victorious in this no holds barred deathmatch?
In one corner, representing the Isle of Orkney....Highland Park 12!
In the other, representing the Isle of Skye....Talisker 10!
You decide which is the better whisky. Both have peat, both are readily available, but which tastes better?
Two scotches enter, once scotch leaves. Two scotches enter, one scotch leaves.....
Seeing the results so far I don't think it will make a huge difference if I'll end up voting for HP12 but it seems I must buy ( or try ) me a bottle of Talisker 10 soon!!
It started out all Talisker 10 but Highland Park 12 has started a little comeback. Who will reign supreme? find out in 13 more days.
For the fence sitters, a deathmatch does not end in a draw

As it should!
Look... I love both, despite their considerable differences.
However, Highland Park 12 Year Old wins out for the following reasons:
1. Utilization of a proportion of 'home-peat-reeked' barley
2. Overall complexity
3. Consistency of product over many, many years
4. Incorporation of a percentage of whiskies aged in top quality Sherry wood
I've been a fan of HP12 since the early 1980s, and it has provided me with a tremendous number of satisfying drams.

So I am going to start a couple of head-ons.
Thanks for the props guys
I did have in mind a few more head to head matches if this one did well. I started the 1 on 1 format as I looked at the other polls and realized there were too many factors to consider when there was more whisky to choose from. With only 2 you are forced to really focus and it provides a much deeper discussion.
Before my recent bottle of HP12 I would have easily sad HP12 but now I'm not so sure yet......
