Amoroso sherry finish – 45.8%
My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Dark amber
Nose: Typically Talisker with a mix of peppery spices, light smoke, and a caramelly sea breeze, dried sherry fruit joins in.
Palate: Peat soaked figs and raisins, vanilla fudge, white pepper, cloves and cardamom.
Finish: Long, smoky and spicy.
Overall: The sherry remains rather in the background, only to underline the famous smoky spiciness of the Talisker spirit. Quite different from the fantastic 1999 vintage.
Rating: 87/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
