    'Still My Talisker Of Choice'

    N: Much like the 10yo, but sweeter and more chalky. A bourbon sweetness shadows the usual Talisker characteristics, namely - saline, maritime, beefy nose with a hint of mature peat. Very Bladnochesque with bubblegum. Clotted cream - 'live' cultures - a mature fresh, rain water on grass [smiley face]…. lots to discover

    T: Much sweeter bourbon which is more balanced against its maritime characteristics than the 10yo.  Honey and wood spice coats the whole palate with fresh straw to boot.  Spices now, cumin seeds, anise, cinnamon and turmeric - thats the dryness!

    F: Bourbon cocoa notes mingled with white pepper and chilli remain lingering and tingling. Mint and peat smoke and herbal notes linger too. Lots of salt at the end, coupled with a toffee/cocoa/vanilla sweetness. Zing……… Beetroot, valerian. oily. malty. smouldering peat.  ooh, aniseed just appeared!

    C: Its not overly complex, much less so than the standard 10, but its no problem because this dram is alive! - a mouth numbing brute and full of 'Skye in a glass' character, fantastic. For sheer audacity, its still my Talisker of choice. Not dissimilar to the Distiller's edition after water is added, but more assured.
