This is a port matured version of Talisker with a name i couldnt imagine of pronouncing. Interestingly it retails in Australia for the same price as the distillers edition.
Nose: relatively restrained, doesn’t give much away, plum jam, red fruits, lemon pepper, chalky and soapy and some meaty aromas too. With water little bit sweeter, red berries and a little more soapy as well
Pallet: oily and viscous, toffee and citrus, with kirsch Talisker pepper and chili with a hint of smoked pepper. With water much the same.
Finish: plum jam again, coco powder creating dryness and a lovely build-up of smoke. With water more smoke.
Mark neat –8.5, with water 8.5
I very much like Talisker, the spirit has a good balance between phenols and sweeter toffee flavours, this is a good representation of the distillery, happy to have it.
