Information

Make: Talisker

Age: 8 years old, distilled in 2009

Strength: 59.4% ABV

Region: Island

Appearance

Deep, warm yellow gold with amber lights.

Nose

Confident, with the key-note Talisker pepper. Sweet menthol rises in a peat-smoky top note, backed by hints of creamy toffee and cereal. Below this, fresh maritime notes of sandy beaches and sea salt on an oaky base, wreathed in more peat smoke.

Palate

Silky and surprisingly sweet. Gentle peat smoke; then lightly salty with a cranberry tartness, a vanilla-sweet warmth around chewy cereals and a sprinkling of ground hazelnut. Later, burnt pastry, before late peat smoke.

Finish

Long, with a fabulous balance of smoke, honeyed sweetness and salt; then spice, with light pine and menthol, above smooth liquorice bitterness, and a lingering smoke in the aftertaste.
