The nose is much more restrained with the peat in the background
Palate still has lots of peat but the pepper is there now, the classic Talisker pepper notes mixed in with the brine
I think this is better with water because the peat swamps the profile when neat.Nice stuff
A big blast of peat, brine with a touch of lemon, wet hay and whipped cream.Very much like some OB Caol Ila in style
Peat is huge, almost overpowering in a rough way. there are some sweet creamy notes in the mix with some dryness and wafer notes. Bitter plum, plum/apple skins and a little Bakewell tart.
Very long indeed with the peat growing in strength with some bitterness creeping in.
