    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Tactical 18 yo 1988/2006 (50%, Douglas Laing OMC, Refill Hogs, Ref 3220, 325 bottles)  Colour: straw. Nose: rather punchy but unusually feinty at first sniffing, with notes of sour cream, ‘natural’ yoghurt, lime juice and even grass juice. Raw and acidic, with something twisted. The peat is of the mineral kind (excuse me Mr botanist). Sweat. Mouth: better than the first time I tried this one, maybe it needed quite some breathing. Big peat mixed with orange cake, ginger and pepper. Good sweetness – maybe a tad excessive, that is. Notes of marshmallows and strawberry sweets. Gets then very salty, which may not work too well with the very sweet notes. Finish: long but a bit ‘too much’, thick, slightlyu cloying. Yes, that salt plus sweetness thing again. Comments: a good Talisker but there are many better (and better balanced) ones around I think, including ones by Douglas Laing. SGP: 646 – 80 points.
