Talisker, 18-year-old, Island, Single Malt Scotch Whisky (45.8%)

Talisker, 18-year-old, Island, Single Malt Scotch Whisky (45.8%)
The Isle of Skye is home to one distillery, Talisker at Carbost overlooking Loch Harport. The whisky has a full peppery, sweet flavour with explosive intensity and a good dose of warming peat-smoke - a great dram on a cold day.Talisker Distillery, Isle of Skye

Talisker, 18-year-old, Island, Single Malt Scotch Whisky (45.8%)
Nose
TCP, tarred boat, iodine-impregnated seaweeds. Peat. Wouahh! Then candied orange, trifle, milk chocolate.
Palate
And the beat goes on… iodine, tar pastilles, salty water. Ginger bread. Liquorice.
Finish
Warm, salty. Dry and nutty. Sooty touch.
Comment
Loch Harport on a winter's day, gale force eight! Less peppery than younger versions. Complex, endearing, balanced. 18 seems a perfect age for malts.

Martine Nouet - Whisky Magazine Issue 45

Nose
Complex, burning heather, sweet tobacco, old warehouse, spent bonfire. Underneath is almond paste/nougat, butter biscuits and a lightly herbal note. Plenty of smoke. Rich and complex.
Palate
A slow start, then pepper, a light smoked fish note, fruit syrup. Builds to an explosive finish.
Finish
Red peppercorn.
Comment
Truly fantastic. All of Talisker's attack...and then some.
