Delicious, appetisingly dry and fully mature. This beautifully orchestrated variation of Talisker has a lingering finish which cannot outstay its welcome.
Appearance: Warm gold.
Nose: Unreduced, a quiet nose, not hugely assertive, yet quite maritime. Fresh ship’s varnish. Faint nose prickle. Spicy, briny, with distant smoke.
Palate: At bottled strength, a gentle start, immediately building in intensity. Slow and sweet, then kicks in peppery and hot, with significant balancing bitterness and salt, and a little smoke.
Finish: Long, warming, slightly bitter and very drying, with a little smokiness.
Alcohol Content: 45.8%
Review: “Initially salty, then sweet and spicy on the nose, with summer berries, heather honey, and an earthy note, plus subtle peat” – Gavin Smith, Whisky Advocate Fall 2012.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made of 100% malted barley, is from just one single distillery and has not been blended with any other product from elsewhere. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for a minimum of three years. Each distillery has its own unique style of character due to ingredients, production techniques and maturation.
