    Quite different compared to the distillers edition 2009 also from an Amoroso Sherry cask - much more smoky and peaty and less fruity, sweet - really not bad

    The Distillers Edition - again a very good single malt at a good price!
    • Nose
      some smoke, then a lot of sherry, salt;
    • Taste
      strong, peppery onset; nice sherry flavors; pleasantly oily, round and complex;
    • Finish
      long, spicy oak, oily, buttery, with hints of vanilla;

  6. HunterRomario scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Aroma: Floury peat, a lot of hard fruity, peppery, light pounding in the background, sizzled to bloody fruit. (87 b)
    Taste: Taste faithfully duplicates everything I have described in the scent. (87 b)
    Points: 87
    Summary: Thanks to Nethar for the opportunity to taste another Talisker at our informal meeting and tasting at the bottom. I liked this Talisker, but after Ben Bracken, 27 yo Islay had a hard time. He would need to marry for another 13 years. :-)
