  1. KB201 scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    This Talisker belongs to the Distillers Edition of the Classic Malts of Scotland. The single malt matured in Amoroso sherry casks for at least three months. The smoky, spicy and sometimes hot character of the distillery is wonderfully complemented with sweetness and complexity.
    • Nose
      A scent of sherry, some chocolate and raisins, light peat smoke.
    • Taste
      Complex and intense on the tongue. Start with peat and burnt sugar. Very sweet but also peppery and spicy with roasted malt on the palate.
    • Finish
      Sweet, warming peat smoke and notes of vanilla and malt.

    Talisker Distiller's edition; heard a lot about it but never had a dram in the glass. Until this afternoon.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Mild peat-smoke on sherry. Salty and coastal flavors. Roasted walnuts. Quite intense but not over the edge.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Full body. Nice balance of peat-smoke, spices and sweet sherry notes. Abv is ok; even below 46%. Does not have to be cask strength; no water required. Warm and nice dram after a cold afternoon walk.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Medium long to long finish. Flavors described in the taste slowly fade away. Dry and slightly sour in the very end.
