    What a surprisingly
    good Talisker! Around 150 EUR which is not exactly cheap for a 16 Year Old
    malt. Thanks, Jan, for the sample!
    • Nose
      The nose is
      honeysweet with citrus and banana, drenched in honey, upholstered with light
      vanilla and pepper. Not quite the pepper bomb I had expected, but beautiful
      nonetheless. Slightly mineraly and somewhat salty. The smoke is hard to find on
      the nose. Soft peat.
    • Taste
      On the palate, it
      remains very sweet, but now the peat and salt rush forward and make the fruit
      pale in comparison. Milk chocolate and white pepper precede the citrus, that is
      now even more prominent than on the nose, but cannot compete with the salt
      taste. Grand.
    • Finish
      The finish is fairly long
      and mildly smoky with a bittersweet terminus.
