    maritime, salty, peppery, ground black pepper, smoke (not too much), green apple, pear, ripe passion fruit, quite sweet, caramel, slightly ripe banana, gains in complexity due to oxidation. Great value for money!

      Smoky, malty sweet, with sourness and a very big
      pepperiness developing.

      Very peppery, huge, long.

  6. TastyDram did not rate this whisky Expert Junior

    his Talisker is probably the prototype of an island whisky. Distinct smokiness and typical flavour associations like brine, liquorice, smoked fish and wood-stain.

    It's not a bad whisky, far from it. But it's not "my cup of tea". I'll enjoy it for one dram, and one dram only. But as always, judge for yourself. Do not let anyone else judge for you.
    Talisker 10 is part of the Classic Malt series from Diageo. He is widely marketed and can be found in supermarkets for € 35.
    • Nose
      The first nose is distinctly smoky. Smoked halibut and charcoal grilled salmon. Black pepper out of the mortar. After a while it sweetens a bit. Bassett's liquorice candy and Dutch drops. Once in a while I'm noticing some wood-stain.
    • Taste
      The smoky rock & roll continues. Fish oil, grounded pepper and fleur de sel. It evolves towards something sour and briny. And again liquorice and drops.

      When nipping some water between two sips of whisky, you'll enhance the flavours of this Talisker.
    • Finish
      Quite short. Especially the pepper lingers with a hint of honey.
