I am beginning this thread as more often than not I prefer 10 year old or 12 year old offerings (or even younger if we allow Laguvullin 8 yo 200 Anniversary) over 15 year old and older. Generally I prefer my whisky to taste more alive. If I want to drink something which tastes so mellow then I would rather drink XO Cognac or Armagnac. I will begin posting some reviews here, currently I have in my home Ardbeg 10 yo and Talisker 10 yo and relatively recently I have finished Aberlour 10 yo, before that Port Charlotte 10 yo (2nd Edition) and Bruichladdich 10 yo (2nd Edition) and a more distant memory Springbank 10yo. Would be interested to hear if any other forumites prefer their whisky at a similar age and what you like.
