This is an independent bottling of spirit distilled at Talisker, and bottled by Old Particular for KLWines after 8 years of aging. Bottled at cask strength without coloring or filtering, this young Island spirit should be interesting. I tasted this dram blind and then got the reveal at a later time, so keep that in mind as you read through these notes. Let's dive in.
Brine, pepper, honey. Light fresh baked bread. Some sulfur, but not much at all. Lovely salted caramel.
Nice palate, but quite a bit of heat. Brash, powerful brine and salinity, along with some baked bread, light ash and some pepper. Honey, caramel and fresh berries round out the palate.
Long, bit of heat, but pretty nice. Vanilla, toffee, brine and caramel are dominant with a good dose of pepper to close things out.
This is really nice. A bit hot, so likely a bit young, but good balance and depth for its youth.
