Finished in Amoroso casks, this is quite different to the standard-issue 10 year-old, with an extra layer of sweetness that may not appeal to some Talisker purists but is well worth a look for those intersted in trying a Talisker with an extra dimension.
Appearance: Chestnut brown Palate: Crisp peat at first then softens to enormous richness in the mouth. There’s sweet, roasty malt with a heathery dryness. The sherry notes keep back some of Talisker’s usual pepper. In its place is luscious, slightly oily sweetness - with ripe, juicy fruit and vanilla. Finish: Some very deep cocoa notes, vanilla and lingering quite earthy peat. An enormously chewable single malt, with sweetness having the edge on dryness.
