    The nose is really nice. On the palate and in the finish we are much more classic talisker.
    • Nose
      Fruits, apricots, plum. It's confit. Lemon candies. Light white flower. Crushed pepper, woody.
      Acacia honey. Chip.
    • Taste
      In the mouth it is on pepper, salt. Iodine, oyster. It's very classic talisker.
      A little apricot, peach, plum. Mandarin, lemon zest.
      A little brioche, some butter.
    • Finish
      Finale on pepper, iodine, peach syrup.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Still a really nice one, but unfortunately it doesn't have the honeyed profile that older versions of this expression used to have.
    • Nose
      Clean and dirty at the same time. Caramel, peat, vanilla, apple, orange and a little sawn wood.
    • Taste
      Peat, apple, caramel, pepper and vanilla sugar.
    • Finish
      Peat, apple, vanilla and a bit of bacon.
