Tasting notes
Taster   Rob Allanson
Nose: Gentle at first, the peat smoke starts to swirl. There are spices lurking, cumin and chilli seeds. Then a gorgeous honeyed sweetness comes through, malt loaf, goat's cheese and honey, red berry jam.
Palate: Starts all mellow and rich then things heat up. It becomes very spicy and peppery. Then the smoke cuts through. A seaside bonfire, salt and soot. Smoked butter.
Finish: Very clean and crisp, not that short. Lovely sooty smoky aftertaste that lingers deliciously for a while.
Comment: An intense and vibrant whisky. Well balanced waves of smoke and sweetness.
Taster   Martine Nouet
Nose: Medicinal. Camphor and seaweeds. Malty. Brown bread. Elderberry syrup. Smoky with a fish note. With water, apple compote. A hint of burnt wood.
Palate: Smooth, satin-like. Smoked oysters. Gentle fizzy feel. Drying on spices. Peppery. Salty. Sweet aniseed.
Finish: Dry, rather short.
Comment: Talisker sailing off the shore, taking more oak on board with it.
