    In intensity of departure, although clearly superior to the Tomatin 14, but not really my thing. The sour wine notes and the smoke do not go well together, I think. Out of round, patched port notes, too bitter; the DE is miles better. I wish the finish would be shorter ... it gets more and more disgusting. Not my cup of painting.

    • Nose
      Peat smoke and sweet, dark berries right away. Can not decide what prevails of both. Pretty equal. Add spices and roasted aromas. Touch coffee bean. Slight alcoholic sharpness.
    • Taste
      sweet and tingling on the tongue. Smoke now clearly felt. The classic Talisker Chili Touch. No bitterness. You can tell that this is a younger malt. Fruits are also found in the taste again and leave a sweet impression.
    • Finish
      medium. Peat smoke settles on the cheeks and lasts for a long time. Reminiscent of an ashtray. Mix with the fruit of the port.

    A good drink, very complex and collected. The aroma gave way to taste and finish. This is my first experience with the finish in port. Interestingly enough and delicious. As a result: it is obligatory for experience, but perhaps I was strained by some sticky, indeterminate sweetness that I could not clearly identify.
    • Nose
      Complex, wine sweetness, very far bonfire on the seashore, sweet cold coffee with milk, fruit hookah.
    • Taste
      Very bright, pepper, sea salt, iodine, a very strong sea theme.
    • Finish
      Prolonged, salty, very much iodine, far away in the backwoods I felt all the same, the ripeness, the root of the licorice.

    Pretty peaty and smoky for a Talisker and with a sweet note - I think this is a successful combination - many great Ardbegs have sweet notes too
    • Nose
      Fine peat and smoke, bacon, hints of vanilla
    • Taste
      Rather sweet note, peat and smoke, meaty, little fruity
    • Finish
      Medium long, warm

  10. Lorion scored this whisky 79 points Expert Senior

    Interesting and delicious. Somewhat too aggressive on the palate.
    • Nose
      Smoky, spicy aroma. Pepper, nutmeg. Blood oranges, pineapple.
    • Taste
      Strong, peppery. The fruit appears only after a few seconds. The smoke is there first. Nutmeg. In the Nachschmecken it is sweeter and juicier. smoky orange. Hawaiian flavors (pineapple, bacon).
    • Finish
      Long, warm, spicy and juicy.
