Talisker Distillers Edition 1999

by Oliver Klimek on January 7, 2011

Amoroso Sherry finish – 45.8%

My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Very dark amber
Nose: Beachside bonfire, cherries, nutmeg, cigar box.
Palate: Crispy bacon, peat, mixed forest berries, cloves and a mild version of the signature pepper and “chili catch”.
Finish: Very long,  fruity and smoky
Overall: Many peated malts have a distinct “bacon nose”, not this one. Instead it has the strongest taste of bacon I have ever experienced in a whisky. I love bacon, and I love this whisky.

Rating: 90/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
