General description

I would think this is the 10 in a blind. Just more medicinal. Absolutely delicious dram with all of the quintessential Talisker notes.

Wonderful Talisker, great value for the money, not complex but focused in an excellent way. I enjoyed it with water. The longer you wait the more present are the zests and the smoke. Mouthfilling and oily.

Nose

zests and decent smoke

Palate

Spices, pepper, oily, full

Finish

medium long, spicy, warming, lemon

The next NAS Talisker in front of me. The 57% Talisker 57 north.
This amber gold dram leaves long legs.

Alcohol and smoke are both very strong. The salty smoke is pleasant but the alcohol begs for dilution. When the alcohol finaly is tamed the complex layers appear. Light summer fruits, bitter nut, spicy cinnamon, and a surprisingly sweet peat.
Very nice!

The oily taste has everything I like. A lot of alcohol and the usual peppery smoke. A little fruit in the back and a salty spray at front. Iodine completes.
The second zip is much more complex than the first. A little metallic youthness
loses some points here.

The finish leaves you snapping for breath. It's very long and very spicy.
First it starts of sweet, but a smooth teeth covering kick follows. Now the spice begins to swell rapidly. Until you run short of oxygen.
When everything is cooled down, a bittery sweetness appears and lingers for quite a while. Wow!

Very smoky, spicy and alcoholic. But what a NAS from Talisker this is again.
It only lost some points on it's youthness and on it's heavy thirst for water.
This kick in the ass, scored 92 points.

Einer der besten Talisker die ich getrunken habe. Eine gute Portion Rauch. Viel Alkohol und ein ordentlicher Abgang lassen ihn zu einem meiner Lieblinge werden.
Getoppt meiner Meinung nach durch die Destillers Edition.

General description

Een goede zware whisky, 57% en die krijg je zeker terug. Zee en schepen zijn gedachten die deze whisky bij je naar boven brengen. Persoonlijk een van mijn favoriete whisky's tot nu toe.

Nose

De eerste reuk deins je wat terug, de 57% prikt aardig op je slijmvliezen. Even doorbijten maar dan komen er geuren vrij. Ziltig, kool maar ook peper en wat zoets. Je verwacht een het eikenblad te ruiken maar dat valt mee. Iets van fruit komt zelfs naar voren.

Palate

De eerste indruk is zoetig maar dan breekt het pittige door en denk je al snel aan peper. Dan breekt er wat fruitigs door, nog steeds pittig maar vanille sluimert daaronder.

Finish

Als het pittige wegtrekt blijft toch die kenmerkende rokerige smaak van Talisker achter. Het ziltige in combinatie met een houtachtige smaak brengen je gedachten steeds weer naar een oude scheepswerf ergens in 1600. Heel lang blijft hij trouwens niet hangen, maar als je dan even je keel schraapt weet je weer wat je net op hebt.... 57 graden noord, ze zouden er een film over kunnen maken....
