    Orange Peel

    The Distillers Editions from Diageo are fairly popular. The appear approximately on a yearly basis and it always concerns a classic from their stables that is double matured. In this case a Talisker that got a second maturation on an Amoroso sherry cask. This Talisker was distilled in 2005 and released in 2015.

    That results in a nose that offers chocolate, roasted nuts and a lot of orange liqueur on top of the classic Talisker traits: citrus, seaweeds and pepper. Some polished leather and a good dose of honey. Hint of walnuts. Sweeter than expected and simply marvelous.

    The arrival is creamy and spicy with the peat and lots of brackish notes up front, followed by cloves, pepper and a some sniffing tobacco. Then the bittersweet oranges kick in. Honey and caramel. Eminently quaffable.

    The finish is wonderfully long on pepper and candied orange peel.

    Great Talisker (is there any other?) for a reasonable price.

    Quite a very delicious and beautifully composed malt with a great sherry finish. Especially the nose and the taste show nice flavors. The departure, however, is somewhat powerless to me. Generally, you notice the 45.8% as good as not at all, but that would do good in some places.
    • Nose
      The first impression is sweet, aromatic smoky (burned out campfire) and a hint of woody. There are over-ripe (almost fermented) strawberries and beautiful over-ripe bananas. Slightly grainy and a little rosehip. In between, a maritime saltiness rises quite easily in the nose. Bitter cocoa and fine raisin notes. Slightly chilling, the almost 45.8% you still notice as good as not. Some oak flavor.
    • Taste
      Very tasty and very nice. Extremely creamy mouthfeel. First you taste a mix of smoked ham, nice subtle smoke, chocolate and cherry jam. Generally very sweet fruits. Fine and short pepperiness on the tip of the tongue. At the back, tender bittern notes become more present. Drying and mineral.
    • Finish
      The finish is less intense and not nearly as long as expected. Sweetness shows up here as well, but bitter woody and light peat notes predominate, very dry with bitter almonds and dark cocoa.

    This was not quite what I am used to from a Talisker DE. Somewhat sharp/rough & finish had little complexity which did not improve over the course of 1-2 years.

    I like him. First the great mango sweetness, then the sherry notes, the chili-catch and above all the charcoal smoke - beautiful composition.
    • Nose
      maritime, clear and fresh, cucumber, smoke from charcoal fire, seaweed on the beach, lemon, orange, pepper, honey, chocolate, grapes
    • Taste
      first really sweet, oily, creamy, mango, apricot, honey, then dark chocolate, lots of orange, raspberries, the smoke hits, chilli !!, roasted hazelnuts, algae, mocha
    • Finish
      he was just here! Relatively short, except for the smoke - orange, mocha, smoke, chili, the smoke remains the longest ...

  9. Goethe scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    The peppery-amoroso one "made by the sea"! This batch has in my opinion some PX notes compared with others side by side. Therefore there is a rich fruity component outdoing other batches.

    Concerning price/performance ratio: 9/10
    • Nose
      Sweet sherried smoke. Fruits, walnuts, dried fruits, vanilla, sherry (some PX association going on here), apples.
    • Taste
      BBQ, pepper, chili, dark chocolate, sherry (like PX!). Great texture.
    • Finish
      Long. Chili, dark chocolate, plums, salt.
