If you ever head to Lewis, we finally have a (legal) distillery here - for the first time in 170 years! Just selling the spirit for now, but this year will be the year they can release it as a Single Malt - as under Scots law, single malt whisky has to be aged in a cask for at least 3 years. Hopefully the Abhainn Dearg (Red River in Scots Gaelic) expressions will one day be discussed by classy geeks in the same way :)

While I love both, Lagavulin is damn hard to beat!

Talisker is actually peaty-er than Laphroaig, its like a peat fire in a glass. Prefer Laphroaig though, it's a little milder. Lagavulin is also a b-e-a-utiful whisky, I find it to be the peatiest of them all, but it's a lot smoother too. I think it's very hard to go wrong with an Islay whisky. Always remind me of peat fires on cold days (I live a few Islands over :p) If you enjoy both Whisky and storytelling, I'd recommend 'Raw Spirit' by Iain Banks - about his travels around the whisky trail in Scotland.
