Can anyone compare it to another scotch in terms of the salty character... Lag? Talisker?

Thanks


Would go along with what MrGimpy said, it's (and referring to the 12yo here as I've never had the 21yo) a completely different animal to stuff like Lagavulin. It is very nice though. Been a while since I drank it, but I remember it being quite oily in mouthfeel, salty and fruity, had a sweet berry type thing going on. Not too sweet though, was well balanced by the saltiness and oily mouthfeel. Either way, it is definitely worth trying.

Would make sense for USD/bottle. I thought it was per dram and couldn't think how that would make sense.

sorry, i didn't realize it didn't say it. that would be emirati dirham and i think these were 4cl servings.

i got into trouble on a different occasion with some glenfiddich 18 after someone told me a completely incorrect exchange rate.

i won a bottle of 21 from a tasting once - it's quite nice, but seemed not nearly smooth enough for a 21 year old.

for the money i would go with the 18 talisker, which is similar on the salt, though also peatier.
