Member Ratings and Notes
Nose:  Light peat with that Talisker richenss. 
Palate:  Sweet, peat, sherry, then waves of flavor.  A nice oily mouthfeel.  The finish gives a nice balance of sherry and peat.
N: Purple smells.
P: Very delicate initially, gingery peat with candied fruit, evaporative.   Nectary.
F: The peat gets bigger in the finish, wisp of chocolate, very drinkable for 57%.    

Y'know, palates are a fickle thing -- so who are these assholes assigning ratings to whiskey, when their preferences can shift unexpectedly? Especially that asshole who changed his mind and upgraded this delicious malt from a B to a B+/A-


-- Old Notes -- I like it, but these older Talisker expressions never quite do it for me... I'm not sure why. Lacks complexities I find in younger expressions. Salty ocean stuff with mild smoke.  B


N: Port Elleny + floral cherry


P: Hot and delicious, butterscotch cream, sweet corn


A very briney nose that reminds me of a fishing village.  More brine on the palate with peppers and fruits with a long salty finish.


Blind retaste:

N:Tea, citrus, fruity and a bit metallic

P: Lemons, hints of cinnamon and licorice

F: Long briney finish
