About

General description

Smoky charcoal and brine nose. Smooth mix of smoke, peat and brine. Very nice, typically good Talisker. By far the best of the GoT collection.

General description

Best peated scotch I've ever had. I still can't say I'm a peat lover but the complexity and sweetness of this scotch really shined. The peat is integrated so well into this whisky it's almost an afterthought

Nose

Band aids, peat, caramel, candied grass, grilled meat

Palate

Smooth, smoky cherries, sweet and savory, oily mouth feel, full flavored, complex, really nice transition from sweet fruit to smoky goodness, liquid smoke

Finish

Smokey, pepper, medicinal, cough syrup

Quite a youthful Talisker with a peppery spicy edge and plenty of raw peaty smoke.

General description

Quite tasty. Smoky grapefruit and salted blood orange with ginger on the nose. The mouthfeel is a bit dusty, with espresso, salted caramel, tobacco, canned strawberries, ketchup and lots of chocolate. Medium length, bittersweet finish, with smoked caramel chocolate at the end.
