Tasting Note:

A superb new expression that retains the Talisker character, while adding sweetness, depth and complexity to the overall flavour. A spicy deep sea monster from unusual casks that holds nothing back as it brings a new depth, spiciness and complexity to long-matured sweet, rounded Talisker base notes. Full gold, with copper lights in colour and very good beading. On the nose it is mild, with a noticeably spicy prickle, and lightly nose-drying. The aroma is immediately maritime, with notes of sea salt, dry seaweed, peeling boat varnish and warm sand, on a base of smouldering peat. Very spicy and malty. Honey and smoke. Even a drop of water suppresses much of this. Medium to full-bodied, on the palate it has a mouth-filling texture at natural strength. Unexpectedly rich and sweet before a spiciness asserts itself, with a pinch of salt. The trademark chilli catch as you swallow is still there, while the pepperiness on the palate comes across in complex waves of drying spiciness. Interestingly, all these tastes are enhanced by a little water, which makes the effect more rounded, sweeter, and spicier still. The finish is long and spicy, with a delightful aftertaste. Lightly drying. With water, longer, spicier and more peppery. Leaves a thread of smoke on the tongue.
