    Very maritime. Great whisky!
    • Nose
      Lemony, citrusy, some other ripe and sweet fruits, touch of vanilla, sea breeze
    • Taste
      Very punchy but smooth, oily, little peaty, leathery, oaky, very salty, some seaweed, still the citrus fruits
    • Finish
      Long and burning

    Very citrusy, lemony in the nose. The palate is peaty with a citrusy and punch that reminds on some very good old single cask Ardbegs. The finish is long and powerful. If I didn't know that it is a Talisker I'd say it's an Ardbeg. Really good and surprising.

    Talisker NAS (59,2%, OB 2003, ‘for sale only at the distillery’)

    Nose: starts on earthy smells, a forest after the rain and wet stones. Sharp peat with some lemon and a nice touch of cinnamon. A tad farmy. The usual pepper and sea air is here as well. Very good but on the downside, it’s a little clean and I’m missing a bit of the volcanic warmth of other Taliskers. Mouth: a powerful attack and oily delivery. Really peaty and peppery. More smoke than on the nose. Quite hot, not much else to taste after that. Gets slightly bittersweet in the aftertaste.

    Not your average Talisker. Very good and punchy but still there seems to be an iron harness around this dram, which prevents it from breaking open and showing its true complexity. Otherwise it could easily have been a 90+. Water didn’t help much.

    Price: around € 140.
    Score: 89/100.

    This is the same whisky as (just with added backlabel and swiss importer):

    Very dry, with almost 60v% pops full in the palate. Smoky, spicy and intense, almost closing the mouth and takes your breath away. Be sure to enjoy with water, pour some drops in and you`ll see waht Talikser is.
