    Love it. 
    • Nose
      Intense but not over-powered smoke with a hint of salt, reminds me of the ocean and sea breeze. Also a hint of dried fruit demonstrated behind the smoke.
    • Taste
      Thick and smooth body. Oily. With great smoke and hints of dried fruits. Also presenting a salty character and ginger spice.
    • Finish
      Long lasting smoke with hints of salt, dried fruits, and wood. Nutty in the background.

    A small amount of water mutes the nose, brings out some floral and citrus notes on the palate, but kills the smoke and peat.  I’d rather have it neat.  I like Talisker, but am not sure it’s worth $70 a bottle.  It’s good, but not that good.  $59.99 would be a fair price.  It is a unique single malt, though.  I don’t expect to find another that tastes quite like it.
    • Nose
      Salt air, pipe tobacco smoke, peat, and a bit of orange.
    • Taste
      Cavendish pipe tobacco smoke, salt, rock and mineral, slight oak wood and nuttiness, with a dash of pepper.
    • Finish
      Smooth, medium-length, with some peat, spiced oak, and pepper notes.
