Distribution of ratings for this:
Nose: Hints of smoke and peat with an unmistakeable champagne vapour complimenting citrus notes. I can smell sour marmalade and earth.
Colour: A beautiful deep yellow slightly darker than apple juice.
Taste: Gentle hints of peat and smoke bring a fire that warms the tongue and persists along the tongue and down the throat and esophagus. Like the nose, dry champagne and sour marmalade are noticeable.
Finish: Not bad, but disappointing. The marvelous taste lasts only a moment as burn and spirit take over and dissipate almost as quickly as they started. A bitter taste lingers on the tongue.
Overall: Enjoyable but lacking in depth and a solid finish. In my opinion, the Talisker 10 tastes more smoky than, for example, the Clynelish 14 but it lacks the depth and finish that makes the Clynelish 14 one of my favourites so far in my journey.
