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
