Tasting Notes by scips
Distilled in 1992 and bottled in 2008 Bought while visiting Talisker 2 years ago . I didn't like it at first... but I will give him another chance... let's taste it again. The nose is very subtle, hard for me to find out what's in there. I think of some sandalwood, probably a small chili peper or at least some spice in the second nose. The alcool kills all the taste in first mouth. But the finish is very nice. The second try is easier, the mouth is much more used to the alcool volume probably. There is a background taste of medicine all over that sadly stays. But after 2-3 trials I get some hints of vanilla and probably oak wood. It's sad that the medicine stays in mouth, I needed to drink some water to wash it out.
Finally, I don't hate it anymore, it's not my favorite, I don't like whisky medicine taste. It's sad that there is not a lot of clear tasting note, and that everything is hidden by the spiciness of the alcool.
