Tasting Notes
Robert KarlssonA bit laidback, closed. Malt, a bit of muesli? Needs water whereafter kind fruits arrive, mandarins? Tastewise much spicier than the nose suggested. Quite clean, malt, alcohol and white smoke. The aftertaste is slightly weird, sourly smoke? With water it gets a really lively fruit profile instead that really makes it so much more interesting. Like some kind of spiced up Clynelish? Dunno, but good! Verily.
Oliver KlimekColour: Bright amber - Nose: Mixed tropical fruit cocktail with maritime freshness, honey, hints of cloves. - Palate: Pineapple, banana, honey, hints of herbs and pepper. - Finish: Very long, with a fruity whiff of smoke. - Overall: The oldest expression of Talisker is unusually fruity and has only very little peat influence. There is a lot to explore in this malt.
