    sample from a friend Nose: Ah, vibrant and very lively. An acoustic guitar solo (these things happen, right?) at a show on the coast. Baseline of the coastal salt, pebbles, stony sand, and seaweedy peat… read more

    sample from a friend Nose: Chalky vanilla malt atop a gentle peat, really rather coastal on pebbles. Some of the lemon and freshly shaved ginger. Lightly acrid gasoline at the pump, cold pressed nut and… read more

    Tasted January 2013. Ah, Talisker, the single malt that started it all for me a few years ago, and it still holds a special place in my heart for that reason. Nose - peat smoke and saltiness, smoked … read more

    I’m slowly working my way to buying a Lagavulin DE. It’s expensive, and I’ve yet to pull the trigger on the increasingly ridiculous price tag. In the mean time I was happy to grab a bottle of Talisker DE… read more
