Talisker 18 Years

$180.00

Deep and stormy like the ocean crashing over the rocky shores of its island distillery. Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch whisky rugged enough to call the Isle Of Skye Its home.

Description

 

TASTING NOTES

APPEARANCE

Amber

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, those maritime characteristics emerge once again dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

BODY

Full. Pleasant, smooth.

PALATE

Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.

FINISH

Medium length. The characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
