The Talisker 18y is a warm and complex bottling of the Talisker distillery. It's not as rough as the 10y, but more warm and soft. The nose is sweet, it contains berries and toffee. And there are little traces of smoke, but not very much. But that emphasizes the origin of the Talisker, the Isle of Skye.
The body is really smooth and warm, soft, with notes of nuts and oil. There's nothing spurious or deflective. The completion is a typical Talisker palate. It's complex, full of spices, especially pepper, together with notes of leather. And it's long lasting and has the right strength you're expecting from a Talisker.
