    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    TASTING - Talisker NAS (59.2%, OB, for sale only at the distillery, 2004)  Colour: straw. First nosing: sharp, peaty and farmy, not unlike some old Broras. Haha! This one makes me remember when Dave Broom caught me in front of dozens of French whiskyfreaks - we did taste a great malt blind and Dave asked me what it was. I said Talisker, it was Brora. Dammit. The only excuse I found was that Brora and Talisker did share the same maltings back in the 70's. Anyway, this Talisker develops on wet hay, dried flowers, wrack. Then come the smoke and the pepper. How clean, how fresh! Cleaner and less woody than the recent 20 yo ‘bourbon’. Whiffs of sea spray. Mouth: almost pungent. Even a little prickly, but so nicely balanced. Punch and balance, I’d say. Lots of peat, vegetable juice, wintercress, white pepper, liquorice stick, rubber. Quite compact and sort of austere - perhaps not for some of the newbies who must tour the distillery. Long and nicely bitter finish, on cold, infused tealeaves. Just superb, exactly my tastes. 92 point
