    One of my first whiskys and, even after such a long time, still a very balanced delicacy that I like to drink.
    • Nose
      At the beginning clearly dark and sweet berries on the nose, which can also have a slightly sour touch from time to time. This is followed by campfire smoke and smoked fish. The pepper is pungent, the malt is herbal, spicy and dry like cinnamon. There is also some old wood far away.
    • Taste
      Lots of pepper in the mouth, although the whisky remains light and has a somewhat drying effect. It's smoky and dry like embers with cold ashes. Then the sweet berries and grapes come and everything just keeps getting sweeter.
    • Finish
      The finish is again spicy, sweet and dry with a light smoke. After a while, sweet blackberries will appear again.

    A wonderful whisky. I always have one of these open and ready for an "everyday" dram.

    I know that (some) people complain about the quality spiralling downwards - I however remain a fan.
    • Nose
      85 85
      Alcohol, iodine, rock candy, redwine (that's what I get, but it is probably port...) and mild smoke.
    • Taste
      85 85
      A little smoke - mild pepper not the typical "Talisker pepper" - sweetness - I get a hint of liquorice and maybe a little vanilla? It's a little dry on the tongue.
    • Finish
      84 84
      Medium. The pepper builds, the sweetness lingers but fades away slowly, the redwine/port comes in from the side and stays on the tongue towards the end.
