    I really enjoyed this one overall. At times it was wowing, at others felt underwhelming, but in general it was quite good. It’s been a while since I first tried and fell for Talisker 10, and as I’ve had more whisky the impression that left on me has diminished somewhat, and this really brought that right back.
