Talisker is immensely popular (and rightfully so), which explains why this Special Release comes in over 42.000 bottles. Only Lagavulin does more. After the 30 years old from 2014 and the (fantastic) 8 years old from last year, Talisker now comes as a 15 years old. Staying in the theme ‘Rare by Nature’, this bottle too was giving a special label. I quite like it. I hope I can say the same of the malt.

There, the Talisker Trinity presents itself from the moment I put my nose in the glass. Pepper, peat and salt. I get a fisherman’s boat and seaweeds, a warm sandy beach, sea salt and molded wood. Hints of peach and lemon. Delicious.

Hmmm, surprisingly rich and sweet. Even a tad creamy. Apple sauce, pepper and salt with a truckload of salted caramel. Drying towards the end. Brilliant Talisker that reminds me somewhat of the 57° North.

The finish is very long, drying on toffee and lime.

Again a great release from the oldest distillery on Skye. I’m going to order me another bottle.

I'm happy to see the inclusion of more Talisker in the special releases, this sounds like it will be delightful and the number of bottles is much higher than that of the 8yr old from last year.

@cricklewood Somehow I expect the price will be a lot higher too.

@Nozinan I have to sadly agree. I imagine it will be priced somewhere in the vicinity of what was being charged for Caol Ila 15-18 of year's past.

The Ten is almost $105 here with tax, I can't imagine what the 15 will cost.

@casualtorture Yeah, we get ripped pretty good here. That's why most of our whisky shopping is done in Alberta or south of the border.
