Talisker 25 Year Scotch Whisky
“The 25 year old is a beautifully orchestrated variation of Talisker. There’s smoke on the nose, followed by Christmas cake fruit, and a spicy slow release of balanced flavours. The lingering finish cannot outstay its welcome. A star.”

Bright olive gold.
Nose drying. Seaweed and old oranges, with smoke in the distance and some chalk. Surprisingly fruity and juicy, although with clear Talisker identity. With water almost soapy, a waxy sweetness. Smoke still present, but now more fragrant.
Firm. Slippery smooth..
Sweet and meek to start, with some acidity and saltiness. Extraordinary flavour development. Becomes dry, stony, minerally, dusty, toasty. Ground white pepper. Chillies.
Medium to long, slightly bitter, drying finish with a warming effect.
