Raided Score: 89 Publication: whiskyfun Excerpt: Extremely good with high levels of complexity and a very captivating evolution from nose to finish. It perhaps just lacks a little something ‘extra’ to get it over the 90 line. Read Full Review Raided Score: 91 Publication: The Whiskey Wash Excerpt: This isn’t just any Talisker. This dram drinks like a lady, yet a little too sweet. I think bourbon drinkers would enjoy this. Read Full Review Raided Score: 91 Publication: Whisky Advocate Excerpt: Marzipan, damp tweed, cooking chocolate, and white pepper on the nose, with light iodine and peat notes. Notably sweet on the palate, with fleshy oranges, peaches, cocoa powder, woodsmoke, and peppery peat. The finish is medium to long, with quite restrained Talisker pepperiness.

Euros, give it a shot.

A rare Diageo release, Talisker 15 is released once a year at cask strength.
Vivid and full of character - apple crisp, creme brulee, the maritime air and a whallop of ash.
Maritime is the theme with this bottling - sweet honey, praline and almond combine with brine, ocean air and pepper to keep sweet and fruit balanced.
Long finish that grows a hair ashier with the introduction of some slate, stone, earth and peach cobbler to pair well with the salty ocean qualities.
Overall, this is incredibly delicious and masterfully concocted - much more balance than we typically see from Talisker in their efforts to balance ocean, peat and sweet.
