    Lovely stuff, and to say I usually don’t like Talisker all that much!

    • Nose
      Very sweet peat, with notes of honey and vanilla. They wouldn’t have set a beehive on fire, would they? Some grassy notes too as well as menthol. Then we get a sudden truckload of figs and green apple. A very enjoyable, balanced nose here.
    • Taste
      Ultraclean smoke, just when it reaches the height of it’s intensity, the beeswax takes over. Asparagus and other vegetal notes join the fray. The lemons come in last.
    • Finish
      A citrusy smoke that just lingers. A wonderful end to this.

    Room temperature when drinking: 23℃

    Nose: It starts with smoked bacon and pepper, and some sea salt, followed by sweetness, creamy custard sauce, lemongrass, and bacon sprinkled with crushed black pepper. There are not many surprises when smelling.
    Palate: First, fruity, fig, citrus, papaya, and some honeydew. Cigarettes and shredded shredded tobacco appeared next, with a slightly bitter base, medium wood aroma, and very little smoked and meaty sensations. At the end there are chrysanthemums and hang white chrysanthemums.
    Body: The sense of oil and fat is not enough to describe. I just drank a bite of vegetable oil, which should be the closest to the oils in the wine body I am currently in contact with.
    Finish: Long, yellow rock sugar, Hang Baiju.

    Nose: 86/100
    Palate: 91/100
    Finish: 95/100
    Body: 90/100

    Overall: 90/100
    The rare smell of incense is weaker than the entrance. When smelling the fragrance, it feels like that, and the result is a face slap = =

    Smells like a Caol Ila to me. A rather young one at that. The taste is fantastic! I'm guessing they blended in some older grain whisky to give it that smooth and complex taste.

    Pretty good flavor and taste, but not very balanced among themselves. Slightly sinks in the aftertaste.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Delicious, sweet-fruity, velvety, bright, with berry sourness, fudge, raisins, biscuits, candied fruits, light minerals, greens and flowers, apricots, skin, tangible typical roman flavors.

  8. lincolnimp scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Tasted with a few drops of water.

    Nice nose on white fruits, butter and cream but it is a little closed even with a little water.
    After a while some faint creosote notes, mixing with a dirty peat,this is really good nose.
    Creamy, peaty mouthfeel, very substantial and the peat grows in your mouth but the fruit keeps it in check and then a slightly bitter grapefruit note creeps in, I reckon there is some Caol Ila in the mix here
    Ever so slightly hot but the balance is quality here, not a mass of flavours and a bit one dimensional but it really does work.
    Nice work CB

    Edit, after playing around for a few minutes there is a metallic aftertaste which knocks it down a few points on the finish, the only negative thing about it really but the palate more than makes up for this.
