Whisky Reviews for Talisker 2008 McG

    At this tasting, the bottle was already open for half a year with about three quarters full. Immediately after opening the whisky came across very alcoholic. Now smell, taste and finish have changed significantly for the better.
    • Nose
      Light campfire smoke, farmhouse cheese, cinnamon, fresh mint.
      Very balanced between smoke and fruitiness. Slightly salty.
    • Taste
      Overall very balanced. Sweet, salty, smoky, spicy. The Talisker distillery character comes through immediately: Chili Catch. Decent smoke, sweetness, fine peppery spice and light chocolate can be heard.
    • Finish
      Less complexity, but more intense than with taste. Very similar notes but significantly more cinnamon and pepper.
