    Very good stuff from Talisker. The people working for this Skye-distillery certainly know what they are doing. I wonder if the newer bottlings of the 18yo are just as good?
    • Nose
      Some light smoke is accompanied by brine. Then lots of fruit appears. Lemon, underripe banana, nectarine and peach. It also has a floral quality. Yes, this is proper stuff.
    • Taste
      Soft at first but then some intense smoke and pepper. Pretty dry. But it mellows after a while, which is when the fruit returns, this time apples and pears. And there's some marzipan too.
    • Finish
      Smoky and peppery, giving it a beautiful long fruity ending.

  3. Bishlouk scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Amazingly cool. Citrus, the smoke rising in power thereafter.
    • Taste
      Bitterness of orange peel, vanilla and honey. Fruity enough, the pepper is discreet. Citrus fruits present.
    • Finish
      Pepper is more, smoke on the tongue. White pepper grows and radiates.

  6. Dre73 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Nice whisky, nice mixture of smoke, spiciness and darker fruits, in a oily style, very pleasant. Nicely balanced.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Spicy, full nose, slight peat and a hint of smoke. Some fruitiness, prunes. Ripe fruits, apples. Pretty some alcohol. Also some vegetal notes.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Starts smooth, then more spicy, pepper, pickering. Some licorice, a smoky touch, a little peat. Oily thick structure.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Smoother, still some smokiness, licorice, ashy and some red fruits. Pretty long.
