My Tasting Notes:
Colour: Medium gold
Nose: Smoked pineapples, banana, vanilla, liquorice, hints of bacon, cloves, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Palate: Medium peat, tinned topical fruit salad, vanilla, liquorice, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky with a good dose of spice
Overall: Following the trend of wood-engineered NAS whisky, this Talisker offers a different, fruitier, angle on the distillery than the regular 10 yo; good but not necessarily better – and more expensive.
Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$
