Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Fragrant, slow developing, complex nose: heather blossom, malt toast, hearth. Scented and slightly herbal: elegant and powerful at the same time.
Palate: Excellent texture and mouthfeel mixing rich oily malt with gentle fruit and all-embracing peat smoke. It has an elegant muscularity.
Finish: Long, smoky.
Comment: Amazingly little wood impact for a whisky of this age. Not the most robust Talisker but a cracker nonetheless.

Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: By the shore undoubtedly. Fishing net. Seaweed bonfire. Tangerine. Vanilla.
Palate: Robust. Neat and open. Malty. Peaty. A lot to tell.
Finish: Pepper breaks through a veil of smoke. Totally Talisker.
Comment: More medicinal than other versions. If matched with oysters, add barbecued sausages as the French do in Marennes-Oléron.
