      Smooth, rich and creamy. Sweet summer strawberries come through with cherries, sherried oak and prevalent peat and smoke.

      Relatively short to moderate. Some pepper notes linger. A splash of water improves the experience.

    A malt made for a rainy day in autumn. Very inviting nose, nice contrast of sharpness and fruitiness on the tongue, a finish as an echo of the palate.
    • Nose
      How beautiful, maritime notes. Salzgeschwängerter wind at the sea, cooling. The smell of wet sand. Fresh sliced ​​apple, red grapes. It is warming, slightly smoky, leather notes are mixed with vanilla pods with pepper. A compote of black cherries.
    • Taste
      Creamy, almost creamy, and with a lot of volume on the tongue. Peppers sharpness. Very mild peat smoke, oak pieces. Also pleasantly salty on the tongue, the initial pepper is still present and gives off a good pick-me-up. In addition, cherry flavor, raisins, dried apricots. Dark chocolate and aged brittle leather.
    • Finish
      Medium length, spicy, tart and fruity, not too dry. A tingling sensation on the tongue as a reminder of pepper & salt from the nose and mouth.

    • Nose
      Sweet and malty. Perfumed leather. Campfire smoke, scented candle.
    • Taste
      Sherry with prunes. Some smoke, pepper, ham. Malty.

  8. St. Pauli scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    The stunning nose was very promising, but the rest could not deliver the same spectacular high level. Still a very good dram, mind you.
    • Nose
      The sherry has had it's effect, this smells deliciously umami: salt, sweet and sour (fermented grapes). Furthermore, there is soft vanilla and wood shavings, moist sultana cake, prune, apricot, moist peat, wood smoke and salted almonds.  
    • Taste
      Oily, coating, maybe a tad less expressive than the nose, but especially the sherry influences, smoke, wood shavings, soft fruit are present, along with the Talisker trademark of pepper.
    • Finish
      Quite long, slightly drying on pepper, with wood smoke, hay, almonds and only a hint of fruit.

  9. Snerik scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Not quite as peaty as the new generation of Talisker. Rather more elegant and finely presented. Lovely stuff! 
    • Nose
      Salt liquorish, raisins, some peat, lemon peal, lemon candy, mango and oregano. The nose is very clean and expressive. 
    • Taste
      Slightly bitter, that liquorish note persists! And there’s some raisin notes as well…
    • Finish
      Medium long finish, more peat coming through here. And those Ooh-so-very-Talisker liquorish notes mixed with raisins and lemon. Really pleasant finish!
