Tasting Notes
Rich Howardclassic Talisker notes of light wood smoke, wet stones, sea air, seaweed, and fall leaves, pepper and a hint of clover honey... just enough complexity to be excellent. water clears almost everything except singed wood and fresh linen, with a hint of red berries and some clover honey remaining, maybe even some light apple cider-ish notes on the palate. another one to drink without water, i'd say.
