General description

Very powerful and rich for a 10 y/o. Chili catch definitely there. Just a pity that it's colour added...

Nose

Peaty, salty, with a fresh breeze and notes of seaweed. Vanilla, pepper, lemongras, cloves.

Palate

Nutmeg, oranges, chocolate, salt caramel.

Finish

Long spicy finish. Really bites the tongue.

General description

Runder Whisky mit sehr aromatischem Rauch (genau das Gegenteil zu Lagavulin) und einer frische wie Zitrusgras mit einer Pfeffrigkeit.

Nose

Feuchte Rauchigkeit verfliegt in Kürze. Danach angenehme Frische, vielleicht Zitrone auf einem süßen Honig-Bouquet.

Palate

Geringe Rauchigkeit mit einer guten Schärfe und Wüzigkeit wie Pfeffer.

Finish

Dezente Würze des Fasses, trocken. Mittlerer Abgang. Das Aroma der Küste welgt sich im Mund.

Comments

Talisker 10 was one of the brands that got me interested in whisky over a decade ago. The first dram after opening the bottle was really good and reminded me why I liked this whisky so much in the past. However, after that first really good dram, the intensity and flavour started fading and failing as I tasted more over the following weeks. At this moment (2/3 of the bottle gone) it tastes somewhat generic and a bit thin/watery. Pity!  Still decent, but not as good as it should/could be... 81 - 82 points

Definitely one of my favourites, bottle after bottle. Can never get tired of its bold, rich taste; in particular I love its marine feeling and the spicy, pepper finish.
I hope it won't be discontinued after the introduction of "Skye"; perfectly fits my taste, never disappointing.

This has a soft nose a bit salty and peppered. In the mouth it you get a lot of pepper in the front with salt water and some citrus flavours. If you swill it around it almost sterilizes the inside of your mouth and you get a massive burst of pepper spice.

General description

A nice whisky for those who are not known with peat and sea. But for the lovers of that, this one is slight to light.
peat and sea are there but somewhere in the back.
The nose is slight salty and slight peaty with hints of leather and sweet fruits.
The palet is flat but comes to life after inhaling some oxygen over the fluid.
Hold the sip for a while, after that a peppery surprise awaits you with a touch of sweet leather.
Not a bad whisky, but he feels a bit like the little sister of the big brothers at Islay.

80 points.
