Description

  • Appearance

    Amber.

  • Nose

    Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

  • Body

    Full. Pleasant, smooth.

  • Palate

    Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.

  • Finish

    Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.

ABV: 45.8%
