  • Talisker 10 Year old - Pepper spicy

    By jackjajack on 23rd Sep 20142014-09-23T06:17:00

  • Talisker 10 Year old - Scottish Sweetheart

    By SimeonSanchez on 18th Jul 20142014-07-18T21:36:00


    It smells of smoke, peat, brine, and the same velvety quality of Black Label. For taste, there is an explosion of sweetness and flavor in the mouth, with no bitterness, and a lingering finish. On… read more

    By numen on 12th Jul 20142014-07-12T17:53:00
