Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich and fruity, with plums, orange peel and toffee. Gentle smokiness and seaside character.

    • Palate

      Sweet to start with toffee and fruit leading to darker, smokier notes.

    • Finish

      Long, with a hint of chilli spice.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Appearance

      Amber.

    • Nose

      Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

    • Body

      Full. Pleasant, smooth.

    • Palate

      Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.

    • Finish

      Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.

  • Tasting notes by Annabel Meikle

    • Baked orange pudding sprinkled with cinnamon, pomanders and a trace of manila envelope. A silky mouth feel and develops into richer orange marmalade with burnt edges.

  • Tasting Notes by Dominic Roskrow

    • Toffee and rich peat smoke on the nose. The alcohol bite on the palate gives way to rich sweet peat smoke, some sea notes and plenty of peppery spice. Nicely rounded and complete. Some wood, too, suggesting its age. Like chewing honeycomb and smoky bacon at the same time. Long, spicy and peaty finish. Whisky doesn’t get much finer than this.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    • Elegant with fascinating balance between smoke and subtle sweet fruit. Ever changing in the glass and on the palate. Gentle waves of flavour, superb balance and a classic peppery finish. Seamless.

    This is phenomenal value for an 18 year old. A delicious, multifaceted dram - well worth buying – and rebuying.

    I Bought this for my father in law over Christmas and w’re steadily enjoying it! I’m no whisky buff, but this really is nice than anything I’ve had before! Lovely. Not a whisky for beginners to be scared of.

    Great Island whisky with peat, smoke, fruity sweetness and a whiff of seaside. A truly unique whisky worth every pound :-)

    My fiance and I tried a dram when we were in Scotland. Imagine drinking a cup of smoked chocolate. Best whiskey I've ever tasted and it's not even close. Will buy a bottle for my wedding day, first child etc. The best whiskey by the most unique distillery in Scotland.

    Head&Heart.

    A real enigma of a dram. This distillery is absolutely spot on. Coastal smoke and fruity flavour. For me, the 18 is the king of Taliskers. So much going on. Hard to imagine anyone being disappointed by it.
