Jack savour the moment. Don't rush it.

If you've not seen Richard Joynson's comments on the T18 I've included them below. They are worth thinking about as you enjoy your first nose and taste, Hope you enjoy the moment you deserve it.

Talisker OB 18yo 46%alc.

The T10 was my first love, now I'm besotted by a more mature honey. Sensational!

I tried this over a briny weekend a while ago and thought I preferred the 10 for it's uncompromising power but now, tucked up ashore, this is my new, more mellow, sweetheart. Ace.

Doo-doo-doo, tum-ti-tum.

Gosh I could use some Talisker now. I'm freezing cold and it's been blowing a gale outside all day - and making a terrible racket as it tries to get in through the fan in the window.

Bought one last week after falling in love with it on Valentine's night...at my local pub of all places. But that was just a Valentine's kiss -I'm awaiting the right moment( and company) to undress this bottle.

T10's softer, sweeter, older, more experienced sister, with more subtle layers to undress...you're in for a TREAT!

Les is right! "Savour the moment...don't rush it!"

It's a good whisky - one of the best, but I wouldn't die in a ditch if I could only ever drink the 10yo :wink:
