An advance of seven years on 2018's Special Releases Talisker, this is a big, sooty, earthy single malt run-through with lashings of ripe citrus and treacle sponge, and plenty of warming spice. Plenty of heft and darkness to be found here, alongside classic, coastal Talisker character for purists to revel in.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Billy Abbott, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Fields of damp ferns, sea-splashed rocks and smoky dark sugar. Treacle-toffee notes hide at the back, with hints of liquorice and creosote. Splintered fence notes build, restrained by stewed apple and tarte tatin. Soft spice develops along with fruity jelly.

    • Palate

      Earthy and mulchy to start – piles of damp autumn leaves. The darker notes from the nose remain but are joined by sweet chocolate sauce and liquorice. Leafy notes become sweeter, with herbal notes developing. Sweet fruit sponge drops in from above but darkens to become dark fruit cake with a handful of chocolate chips.

    • Finish

      Rich fruit and buttery pastry. Hints of mint and earthiness linger.

    • Comment

      Does exactly what it says on the tin – it’s a Talisker, and it’s deeper and spicier than usual. It may have lost its sea-salt and black-pepper trademark character, but it’s still got a touch of shoreline in with a whack of tasty darkness.

  • Ning Heywood, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich bonfire smoke mingles with sharp lemon, a hint of vanilla and smouldering driftwood. Some spicier aromas develop – ginger and green chilli – as well as floral lavender.

    • Palate

      Creamy vanilla and driftwood burst forwards, followed by notes of smoke, dark berries, warm spices and malt loaf. A hint of green banana adds a dry edge, before moving to treacle tart, rich buttery pastry and earthy peat.

    • Finish

      Milk chocolate, fresh mint and burnt caramel linger softly, alongside salty sea air and wood smoke.

  • Tom Ransome-Jones, The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Smoked banana, soot and the ashy ends of a dying wood fire. Tart citrus and pine sap. Something of delicate blossom as the curtain of smoke lifts, then a maritime minerality; wet seaside rocks.

    • Palate

      Super-sweet, soft lemon, fresh and juicy and vibrant. Softens into gentle oak, all against that black, sooty backdrop. More fruit follows – perhaps a touch of fig.

    • Finish

      Soot, coal dust, sweet lemon and menthol – light and dark in careful balance.
