Tasting Notes by Anonymous

COMMENT

Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that give the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker's smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit.

SCORE

90 Points

Producer's Tasting Note

APPEARANCE

Brilliant gold.

NOSE

Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.

BODY

Full.

PALATE

A rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of pepper.

FINISH

Huge, long, warming peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.
