Drunk with a teaspoon of water added.

Nose: Strong smoke, slightly fruity with a pinch of salt at the end. Very nice and comforting.

Taste: Warm, with sweet smoke and some apples at the front. As the Talisker warms, pepper starts prickling the tongue. The taste increases gradually, and I would definitely recommend not swallowing it too rapidly.

Finish: Smoke, minerals and a long drawn out taste of sweet oak and peppers. One of the longer finishes I've encountered, and a nice one.

Balance: Pepper is the dominant aspect here, but it's never overpowering and the whisky stays dangerously drinkable, never harsh. It's a well done scotch, and one with a distinct taste.

Will I buy it again? Maybe. It's definitely something unique: the smoke is not like the Islay's, and the pepper is not a typical spice I have encountered.
