Raided Score is a conversion from an external site's score, to our in house uniform scoring system. Please see the FAQ for more.

  • Intro:

    Distilled by Talisker, this Island region Scotch whiskey sees quite a bit of interaction with the sea via the coastal climate.

  • Nose:

    Bread forward and complex - rising sourdough, bright honey, light lemon cream and a bite of pepper.

  • Taste:

    Rich on the palate, especially considering the low proof. Moderate, viscous mouthfeel. Honey, faint pepper, big brine notes that carry with the sweetness magnificently.

  • Finish:

    A faint bit of ash and the tiniest wisp of peat. Long finish that combines salinity, sea are, buttercream and lemon curd with grace.

  • Overall:

    Decadent and wonderful, it's Talisker executing enviable balance and a great toolset of flavors here. Spendy, but worth it.

  • Score:

    7
