Regular 12 is great. The CS is better, its just a matter of if you want to spend the money or not.

What is "trolan?" I think the bottle or the accompanying literature says Isle of Skye.

http://www.whisky.com/distilleries/talisker_distillery.html
"On the shores of Loch Harport, the village of Carbost is home to Skye’s only distillery producing a wonderful award-winning Island malt bottled at above average strength.

Talisker's™ soft, peaty process water is drawn from twenty-one underground springs that rise from Hawk Hill (Cnoc nan Speirag) beside the distillery. These same springs have fed Talisker from the beginning. As its name suggests, the hill is home to birds of prey, usually including Peregrines.

Today, 20,000 gallons an hour of cooling water from the fast running Carbost Burn fill a traditional Talisker feature - five wooden "worm tubs", located outside the still house.

Talisker's two wash stills, carefully recreated after the 1960 fire, are unique. The lye pipes leading off from the main neck are U-shaped, to trap vapours from the first distillation before they reach the outside worm tubs, whilst a small secondary copper pipe carries the vapours so trapped back to the wash stills for a second distillation.

Faithfully following the original design, it is believed that this double distillation ensures that all of Talisker’s™ rich, deep character is captured first time. So there is, indeed, nothing withdrawn or reserved about Talisker™ - a fact confirmed for visitors whose first experience before they take the distillery tour, is a taste of the malt itself.

Talisker™ embodies all the spirit of this rocky, storm-lashed island and its strong, steadfast people. Skye's only distillery this may be, but like the men of the island the malt has character enough for ten."

Don't let that overpriced silliness put you off. Look into Aberlour, Highland Park, Balvenie, Dalmore, Talisker, etc. Browse the review sites and keep exploring nod[1].gif

What are you talking about? Macallan CS is probably the best sub-$200 Macallan out there right now.

I feel like that Galileo would have to be really good to overcome how stupid that label is.

I've never been very impressed with Macallan. I feel they put out ok-good whisky, but nothing special (and certainly not for the price).

Probably, if the reviews are good. I honestly still need to try Alligator : ) Had a chance to grab awhile ago, but I think something else was in the crosshairs.
