Late to the party here, but Talisker is one of my favorites. I picked up the 18 and the DE last year before the increase in price on the 18. I may open them this weekend to taste along with the last bit of 10 year I have left.
It is not in the budget right now, but my dream birth-year bottle is this 1981 Sherry Cask Talisker that is supposed to be otherworldly. http://www.thewhiskyexchange.com/P-4843.aspx
