OK, tried this one because my special other is really mad about it. He kept going about how Talisker 10 was the best scotch he ever had, better than Talisker Skye or any other Talisker. So finally we bought him one bottle.
I poured us some glasses... and then I understood what he meant.
Nose: delicate iodine with a hint of smole. Brine ? Taste: pepper first, then citrus notes and suddenly boom... light peat. Very round and well balanced. A nice sequence! Finish: Lingering pepper, malt sweetness.
This Talisker is spot on from the very first sip. Well done!
