Distilled by Talisker, this Island region Scotch whiskey sees quite a bit of interaction with the sea via the coastal climate.
Bread forward and complex - rising sourdough, bright honey, light lemon cream and a bite of pepper.
Rich on the palate, especially considering the low proof. Moderate, viscous mouthfeel. Honey, faint pepper, big brine notes that carry with the sweetness magnificently.
A faint bit of ash and the tiniest wisp of peat. Long finish that combines salinity, sea are, buttercream and lemon curd with grace.
Decadent and wonderful, it's Talisker executing enviable balance and a great toolset of flavors here. Spendy, but worth it.
