Talisker 10 Year Old Isle of Skye 750ml Rated 89
Brilliant orange-gold. Rich seaweed and peat aromas. Moderately full-bodied, with silky texture and sweet malty notes upfront that develop into a full- fledged salty, peaty character through the finish. Outstanding balance. (tastings. com)
Color: Brilliant gold
Nose: Peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.
Palate: A rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavors, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of pepper.
Finish: Huge, long, peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.
