    Whisky color: dark amber. A good delicate taste of island whisky, although it loses due to the saturation of Ailov's samples. The smell of whisky quickly vanishes from the emptied glass, which indicates young, immature spirits. So it is: because of the deficit of barrels, the manufacturer used for this purpose whisky barrels of the second, third filling, only before they are very charred. It turned out the most "burning" release from the entire line of Talisker. Bought for 50 euros in Duty Free Istanbul Airport in March 2018.
    • Nose
      Soft smoke, peat, sea salt, leather, dark chocolate, lemon peel, black currant.
    • Taste
      Saturated smoke, gooseberries, ginger, black pepper, cherries.
    • Finish
      Short, medium astringency. Walnuts, smoke, oak.

    Evidently young. Some depth but lacks the refinement of the 10 year old.

      Malt, sharp peat, red fruit, citrus. 
    • Taste
      Pepper, red fruit, peat, mild honey. 
    • Finish
      Smoke and pepper. Some honey.

    Balance: aroma, taste and aftertaste - as if I tried three different specimens
    • Nose
      very pronounced smell of ozone (as after the rain), frosty freshness, sea breeze, somewhere in the background raisins
    • Taste
      smoke, smoked fish, hazelnuts, dates, wood-berry
    • Finish
      average, ash, smoke, appear coals
