Review and Tasting

Sampled on 20/02/2013


Clear, mid golden.


Salty leathery cigar box – think new car interior at the seaside and the driver’s just struck a match to light one of those cigars – its smoke also features. There’s also cracked black pepper and a salty butter note but I’ll spare you the analogy.


Classic Talisker sea salt and cracked black pepper with wafts of smoke. Bold favours yet with subtle complexity, sweetness and rounding fruity leather notes. I’d go easy with the water which calms the spice and reveals more vegetal notes from the peat.


Leathery notes fade quickly to leave lingering peaty spice.
