This is the epitome of a coastal single malt with its robust character and seaside aromatics ... pouring a deep amber. The thing to look for in Talisker is the sweetness that provides the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker's smoke is a pear-like quality and a cracked black pepper hit.
Nose: A fresh and fragrant nose. Through thick, pungent smoke comes sweet pear and apple peels, with pinches of maritime salt from kippers, seaweed.
Palate: It's a bonfire of peat crackling with black pepper, with a touch of brine and dry barley. A welcome delivery of orchard fruit provides a delicate and beautiful balance.
Finish: In a long finish, bonfire embers toasted malt and crystallized sugar.
