A special bottling for the Friends of the Classic Malts, this is a 12 year-old bottled at the classic Talisker strength of 45.8% and is a definite step up in depth and class from the always-terrific 10 year-old. Spicy, peppery and complex - delicious.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by TF

    Nose:  Like an exaggerated version of the 10yo, which is to say a more intense combination of bready cereals, raw peat, honey and spices. Really, what's not to like?

    Palate:  Again, this is like the 10yo turned up a notch a la Spinal Tap - it's one louder. Big cereal entry, intense spice, but well-balanced with a mouthwatering sweet note.  The fiery spice keeps coming, with the classic Talisker combo of white pepper and red chilli and some delicious toasty flavours.  This is epic stuff.

    Finish:  The honey smooths everything out as the spice slowly fades.  Demands another glass.

    Comment: Less austere than the 10yo, with a more generous dollop of honey.  Actually, a more generous dollop of everything.  A tremendous bottling, and an essential for Tally fans.

    Not as explosive and rough as the 10 y.o, but dangerously drinkable. Tastes like more.
