Nose: Sea salt and peat immediately hit the nose, followed by spices. There's something else as well... a hint of fish, seriously! A pleasant nose that reminds me of the sea.

Taste: Delicious. Fruity and spicy with sweet hints of toffee and caramel appearing. That smokiness is there, you'd expect it with Talisker, but it's not too overpowering. Very chewy.

Finish: Smokey and spicy with coffee, cream and caramel. The oak comes through right at the end of a lovely long finish before fizzling out with more spice and smoke.

Balance: The smoke and spices carry through really well making for a warming whisky from start to finish. A really excellent dram.

The sea-side location of Talisker can be spotted right away on the nose. I seriously believe that I could detect something fishy, but we're not talking a stench. This is really warming whisky to enjoy at any time, but if you've been out in cold wind and rain, then this will hot the spot every time.
