Nose: sea spray, toasted oak,pears, alcohol, pepper, musky cologne,mild smoke Palate: brine, mango, white pepper, ginger, pineapple Finish: fading smoke (less than Tali 10) and pepper (also less), vanilla, candle wax, Haribo gummy bears Mouthfeel: not syrupy but pretty close

From the nose to the finish, Talisker 18 is richer and more complex than the 10. Of the three main expressions, the 18 brings together what I like best about Talisker, with one exception: the peppery finish of the Tali 10 (which I have never tasted in any other whisky).

That's what I want to read at Connosr! You're getting me all excited to buy this one. After getting HP18, Laph18, Laga16 and A'Bunadh, this one is on top of my whishlist together with the Uigeadail. If only Whisky wasn't so damn expensive...

The peppery finish you mention intrigues me. It's been a while since I've tasted a Tali 10. Next time I'm in a pub, I will reach for one. Regular 16 year Lagavulins can be peppery in the finish, as well, at least to me.
