The empty glass stinks fruits and caramel. A delight.
There is nothing to say, the nose has a strong personality. The salty side of Talisker comes out right now, but is very melted and everything, much less aggressive than on the 25 / 30yo of the 2000s. We add to that a spread of fresh fruit. Ripe peach, and a very light touch of passion fruit. The more the nose opens, the more you feel a hint of medicinal that adds a welcome complexity. Then to conclude, a light chocolate veil. Very soft with its 40 °, one does not get bored, even if one can only dream of a few more degrees.
It is very soft, almost a little watery. We stay on the fruit and the sweet. We forget here the medicinal side but we keep the character melted and salty.
Slight hint of bitterness in the finish. It stays on the main fruit and the salt survives the other aromas. We will like a little more length.
