Laphroig was my thing when I was into Whisky. Loved the aftertaste and the ready brek glow. Can't drink it these days. My body has a big strop and I feel like I've got chronic fatigue syndrome for a few days.
I would drink Talisker when I fancied a whisky. Can't drink it now, the smokey flavour puts me off now.
Talisker is lovely as well. I love that smokiness. A terrible thing to admit but before I lived in Scotland I thought that Jack Daniels was a decent whisky. Some natives put me right. Used to like Jamesons as well. Did a tour of their distillery in Dublin once and there was 8 different whiskies to taste at the end of it. A lot of people in the group didn't drink theirs so me and my mate cleaned up. Came out of there buckled.
Used to love it. Not sure when I went off it but I got into some smooth malts like Jura and Tomatin then when I went back Talisker it tasted rough.
Tastings are ace if you can wang the car keys to someone.
