Nose: moderate intensity, pleasant, perfumed, gentle fruits, honey

Taste: sweet pears, honey, some Talisker pepper, salt, light smoke. This is smooth, smooth, smooth! The silky and delicious delivery is still very relatable to the flavours of the Talisker 10 yo, only much more refined

Finish: rather long finish with a pleasant fade out ending with the characteristic Talisker black pepper and salt. The finish is not quite as lovely as the delivery, though

Balance: there is very nice interaction of flavours giving a well-balanced whisky. Try a taste of this one!

Pepper and salt, terms so frequently used to describe Talisker.

A very fair review Victor and a great whisky.

This has become hard to find but I much prefer this to the 10 year, which I find too rough for most occations. The 18 is much smoother and makes a good dram.
