General description

Delicious Talisker with much of the same character as the 10 just more refined.

Nose

Smoke, seaweed, brine, some smoked meat.

Palate

Same as the nose with some lemon and pepper.

Finish

Smoke, a little medicinal, pepper, but no chili catch. Much more round than the 10.

General description

Very strong on black pepper & spice, yet sweet and gentle on the smoke/peat. One of the better 18 yo I've had.

General description

Fantastischer, kräftiger und komplexer Malt mit ausgewogener Mischung aus Würze, Fruchtigkeit, Rauch und maritimen Noten.

Nose

Sehr voll mit leichtem, aromatischem Rauch, fruchtig mit Orangen und Karamell. Süße Gewürze, Honig und maritime Noten. Schön.

Palate

Zuerst ölig und süß, dann immer würziger mit ordentlich Pfeffer. Auch die Orangen sind wieder da, dazu Beeren und sehr schöner Rauch.

Finish

Kräftiger, würziger Abgang. Dazu eine leichte Süße, toller Rauch und maritime Noten. Schön eingebundene Eiche.

General description

Smoke on the nose, accompanied by fresh wet seaweed that evolves into meat grilled with a spritz of citrus juice. Honey sweetness on first taste that smoothly transitions to agrd, grilled beef sesoned with sea salt. The aftertaste is shades from salty to medicinal, the taste of chlorine in water slowly fading iver the next few minutes.

General description

A classic Talisker! A smooth mouth feel but a little roughness there and there to remind of the distillery's style. Beautiful balance in peat, citrus fruit, bitter chocolate and most importantly pepper. A classic favourite.

Nose: gentle peat and smoke, bit sweet.
Everything is harmonious.

General description

In my limited experience with this distillery's offerings, this is definitely their best. It has that smoky, peaty taste that I love, with a distinctive spiciness that's very enjoyable. A great dram for a cold winter's night before a fire.
