A magnificent lion-hearted old Talisker. Rich with the sophistication of age yet still full of life while retaining the make's familiar maritime and spicy characters. This is an outstanding mature Talisker. Its maritime heritage and elegant fruity notes are enhanced by subtle accents of finishing in fine Manzanilla sherry casks. It can hold its own in any company and is equally good with or without a drop of water. PALATE: Great to drink at natural strength, when the taste seamlessly moves from sweetness through saltiness to pepper, smoke, fire, and brimstone. The mouth-filling texture is rich and smooth. It starts with the sweetness of soft-fudge, then a balancing saltiness gradually yields to a peppery heat that lasts and lasts. The expected chilli-pepper kick at the back is gloriously unmuted. Sweeter, more savoury and smoky when reduced, it's still delicious and the pepper still finds a way through.
The taste is rich and mellow; cool on entry then as it reaches the back palate you can feel the warmth and absolute purity of slow unhurried distillation. This is a bewitching, delectable and luxurious gin; its citrus. Freshness excites and stimulates the taste buds allowing you to experience a starburst of flavours as they explode across the palate. All this from a beaten up old pot still, Operated by beaten up distillers on the coast of heaven. ABV: 46%
