    Full aroma. Simply delicious. Orange, peat (subtle) and fruit. Sherry felt little. Rather rounding off. Great whisky.

    Excellent and at perfect drinking strength.

    Worth getting if you can find it at the right price at auction.
    • Nose
      Reminds me of some Port Ellen but not as refined. The peat is evident and so is the sherry. I also get Tar, brine and a little mint.
    • Taste
      More kick than I was expecting but very good with it and also smooth. I get faint hints of blood orange, lemon, slight liquorice taste and treacle toffee but the very dark kind. I also get hints of strong mint like when you had a trebor extra strong mint 5 minutes earlier and your palate is still fresh from it.
    • Finish
      Quite long, smooth peaty sweet finish

  13. autowatch092 scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Colour: Very dark amber
    Nose: Beachside bonfire, cherries, nutmeg, cigar box.
    Palate: Crispy bacon, peat, mixed forest berries, cloves and a mild version of the signature pepper and “chili catch”.
    Finish: Very long, fruity and smoky
    Overall: Many peated malts have a distinct “bacon nose”, not this one. Instead it has the strongest taste of bacon I have ever experienced in a whisky. I love bacon, and I love this whisky.

  16. BottleBox scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    Great whisky. PS: I do not judge the color of dyed whisky.
    • Nose
      Peat smoke, sea salt, a little peppery, fruity and caramel. With water adds an oak wood note and the peat smoke increases.
    • Taste
      Strong, complex, a little salt. A mix of dark fruit and spices.
    • Finish
      Long, warm and very aromatic.

  17. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    I have several Talisker Distillers Editions and this is the best one. They're all not for apart though.
    • Nose
      Toffee, peat, sherry, dark cherries, citrus, dark chocolate, cinnamon and earth.
    • Taste
      Toffee, peat, dark chocolate and cherries.
    • Finish
      Dark chocolate, peat, toffee and sherry.

  19. Max Power scored this whisky 92 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Seaweed, peat smoke, sea salt, followed by Sherry sweetness, caramel, ripe dark fruits, spices, Christmas stollen, blood orange, some wood. Monstrously complex.
    • Taste
      Pepper, orange, fruit note becomes darker, peat smoke remains behind. Oily and very voluminous.
    • Finish
      Pleasant, long, wood and warm smoke remain. Warming and very balanced.

  20. HunterRomario scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Soaked, and so much, further adds sweetness and tons of sherry. The smell is dense and promising, let's taste.
    • Taste
      On the tongue it looks smooth at first, the smell gradually blends with smoke, then adds cinnamon-like sharpness. Strong and long flavor as a bonus, the smoky cinnamon smoked trail remains on the tongue for a long time. Rich whisky, which makes the good name of the distillery definitely an honor.

  21. karloff scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    Another nice malt from talisker and it`s what you would expect from the distillery. This is not as harsh as the ten year old or is it as nice. A good addition though.

  22. karloff scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    A lovely malt and i bought it at the Distillery after the tour.
    • Nose
      A nice oaky woody nose with that smell of brown sauce and smoke.
    • Taste
      Smoke on the taste aswell and a mouth full of black midget gems. The black ones are my favourites.
    • Finish
       A long creamy smokey liquorice finish.
