Talisker 18 Year Old Island single malt Scotch whisky from Skye. An award-winning whisky with wonderful sweetness and warmth, intertwined with just a thread of smoke. Rich and soft but still assertive.

Tasting Notes

Details

Taste: in brief… Sweetness and power, with less smoke and chilli than younger expressions. in a sentence… Unmistakably Talisker; mild-mannered and sweet to begin with, then more assertive, warming and smoky. Nose: Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water, appropriately, maritime characteristics emerge - dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.
