Member Ratings and Notes
Andy
 

n: sugarcane in brine.

 

p:  White pepper, cinnamon, and sawdust.  Nice.  This bottle opens well.  Give it time.

 

B/B+

 
Fuji
 
Lots of smoke with sea salt and pepper spice.  The peat is more pronounced compared to the core range of OB taliskers.  Some fruit as well. 
Ries
 

n: plastic toy on the beach, a litle fruit (prunes) in pickle brine and light paper smouldering smoke.

 

t: dark fruits (mostly prunes) with salt and a more pronounced peat smoke than usually found in Talisker. Follows the nose, but I find the fruit doesn't come together with the brine and smoke and this is like a bunch of notes but there isn't a tune.

NOSE
A velvet smokiness comes first followed by an amazingly inviting combination of tropical citrus, honey, caramel, vanilla, butterscotch pudding, saltwater taffy and a touch of brine.

 

TASTE
What can I say other than wow. Smoky caramel, orange zest, vanilla cake, Werther’s Original, smoked ham, malt, smoked paprika and a host of other fantastic savory notes. There is a buttery quality to it that is as pleasant as can be.

 

FINISH
The peat seems to kick up a bit in the aftertaste but gives way to a nice smoky grain and wood for a medium finish.
