Member Ratings and Notes
This smelled and tasted more like an Islay malt with lots of preserved fish and briney notes.  Reminded me of Caol Ila on the nose.  It gets a bit more woody and spicy on the palate.  Not much of the citrus and tea that normally make me think of talisker.  It didnt matter if it had the things I thought were "characteristic" of talisker, it was still damn delicious.
