This has to be the best Single Malt produced by Talisker.
Best whisky I''ve ever tasted, and I''ve tasted quite a few. Hits you smack in the face with the first sip, but immediately goes on to soothe you with a special smoky, peaty and spicy treatment that will target all your tastebuds and linger in your mouth for what seems like an eternity, after which it politely takes its leave to nestle itself into your heart forever. Perfection.
A powerful (57% ABV) and bold but, deceptively smooth and very enjoyable whiskey. The tasting notes says it starts out sweet and explodes on the palate with smoke and pepper. And yes it does explode with a long finish. A very good no age statement expression of Talisker, I''m going to need another bottle to take home!
Finally, in Canada - for triple the quids...
Big and powerful but classic Talisker. The smoke on this is superb. Clearly a step up from the very good 10yo version.
Delicious with Diet Irn Bru. Don't knock it till you've tried it. Sensational.
Possibly the most complex Talisker I've encountered. Classic nose- tar, seaweed, a creosoted fence on a hot July day, lemon juice squeezed over fresh oysters, an old plastic fish crate washed up on a Hebridean beach. On the palate- more smoke mingles with honey, vanilla and pepper before the big spicy explosion leads to a long finish. The delicious fumes drift back up your throat to your nose. Stupendous, world class whisky. You won't regret buying this one.
I'm ready to go back and pick up a few more bottles.
Just having a dram of this after having first had a(Talisker) 10yro, an 18yro, and an 07 release 25yro.This one can hold its head high in that lofty company. Highly recomended and will always have a place in my collection.A perfect finish to a little trip to the Isle of Skye! Enjoy!
The only thing this whisky needs is a glass to put it in!
