  1. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 87 points Super Administrator

    Wood finishing can add an additional layer of complexity to a whisky, but it can also spoil the existing character of the malt. In case of Talisker Distillers Edition (2006/2016), the Amoroso finish is hitting the spot! The nose is delivering restrained bonfire smoke, brine and a lovely note of sweet BBQ sauce. On the palate, the famous 'chili catch' is less punchy as in the original, while the feast continues with salty spare ribs, sweet grapes and bitter hints of European oak. Charcoal, mild pepper and fruity sweetness remain for dessert. A fantastic Single Malt!

    Aroma: open, sweet, in the foreground light sherry derivatives - dark raisins, fortified wine, berry jam, currant leaf, then a lot of wood, dry sawdust, varnished table, smoldering board, brackish-mineral, mussels, sulphurous, slightly lime. Phenols and smokiness goes completely in the background, manifested by light burning, extinct coals.

    Taste: bright attack of spices, a mixture of peppers, cinnamon, a lot of orange and tangerine peel, burnt paper, pleasant wood tannins, prunes, raisins, all this is well smoked and smoked, light mineral shades, activated charcoal.

    Finish: medium length, brackish, mineral, smoked dried fruit, fading spiciness and spiciness, sensation of sticky berry jam, wood tannins, oily.

    Rating: 86-87

    Bottom line: a wonderful incarnation of my beloved classic 10, only a little less smoke has come out, more woody and with sweet berry jam. For me, no worse and no better than 10 of them, slightly different, smoothed by sherry.
    In the bottle that was ending, and before that the smoke was not very bright, the aroma smoothed out even more and the influence of the tree intensified, with taste there were no noticeable changes.
