  1. PunxsutawneyPhil scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I absolutely love this. Might be the best modern Talisker in my book. A close contender to the fabulous 10-yo indeed. I always add some water.
    • Nose
      89 89
      Vanilla, honey, oak, crushed sea shells, salt, some peat and a whiff of smoke
    • Taste
      89 89
      Strong, salty, honey, hay, vanilla, pepper, then peat and a splash of smoke
    • Finish
      90 90
      Quite long, quite drying, only slightly bitter. The peat and smoke only now develop quite elegantly. No in-your-face peat bomb. And I think this might be it's best feature.

  2. schengel10 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Bottled with a strong 57% - the "big brother of the 10s" - a very good malt at an acceptable price!
    • Nose
      a lot of smoke, ashes, citrus fruit, sweetness, spices, oak;
    • Taste
      heavier, peppery, smoky, fiery chilli on, cold ashes, oily, fruity (peach, apricot), young, explosive;
    • Finish
      medium length finish, peppery finish, becoming dry;

  3. Vince scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Good whisky--but would prefer to see the 10 available at cask strength.
