Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Grassy but grass by the shore.Wet seaweeds and sand.Hint of bonfire. Green tea.Sweet notes creep through on time.Lemon posset.Complex.
Palate: Smooth and rich.Oily.Sweet malty notes quickly flooded by a hot pepper wave.
Finish: Cooling down on sweet almond.
Comment: Anenticing combination of sweet and warm.AnHebridean welcome dram. Would also workas a wakeup call. Very more-ish.

Taster   Dominic Roskrow
Nose: An enticing combination of sweet and warm. An Hebridean welcome dram.Would also work as a wakeup call. Very more-ish.
Palate: More savoury than the nose but still sweet. Grapey and with some peach all over a peat bedding.
Finish: Medium with fruit and smoke in tandem.
Comment: Is this really Talisker? Not bad at all, but a surprise all the same.
