Laphroiag is peaty and smokey whereas the Talisker is more in keeping with the American idea as to what a good Scotch whiskey should be. Me? I prefer the Laphroiag 15 to all others. It is simply the best whiskey around and at a very competitive price.
I'll take the 15Yr Balvenie over any of those.....
and raise you with the 21YO PortWood.
