Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky 25 year old
Appearance: Warm gold. Nose: Unreduced, a quiet nose, not hugely assertive, yet quite maritime. Fresh ship's varnish. Faint nose prickle. Spicy, briny, with distant smoke. Body: Smooth and firm in body. Palate: At bottled strength, a gentle start, immediately building in intensity. Slow and sweet, then kicks in peppery and hot, with significant balancing bitterness and salt, and a little smoke. Finish: Long, warming, slightly bitter and very drying, with a little smokiness.
