Tasting notes
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Intense,big. Farmyard by the shore. Dry straw,briny whiff. Then a fruit note spring up. Autumn fruit. Apples and pears and sultanas.
Palate: Lusciously velvety. Deceitfully smooth then a spicy outburst shakes the tastebuds. The sweetness comes backwith maltynotes.
Finish: Soothing on caramelised nuts. Hint of nougat. Touch of smoke. Salty feel.
Comment: The palate does not show as much complexity as the nose and finish. But a rich interesting character.
8.3
Taster   Dave Broom
Nose: Back to smoke,this time with an added leathery note.Smouldering leaves,malt,cypress wood. Smoothsslightly with water but still robust with dense smoke,salted fish,dried seaweed. Oily rich and rewarding.Would be great with sashimi.
Palate: Slow and chewy. Fine grip. Broad and complex. Needs water to bring out a mix of dry/charred smoky notes.
Finish: Long,tingling.
Comment: The polar opposite to Talisker 18. Rugged and warming.
