Aroma: fresh scent with ripe fruit, apple cider and hints of smoke. With water comes more fruits and smoke, some brine and salt.
Palate: peppery and salty. Then some fruit and liquorice, ginger comes into the game. Wood tannins, orange peel. Goes great neat. With water I get more I had but also some oranges, chocolate and oak notes. Finish: warm, oaky, peppery with some smoke.
Comments: maturation does the trick this time. Aroma is very full and fruity. Not much to add - without flaws, as usually for Talisker.

The ratings system that we use is based on personal opinion and reflects only a personal momentary impression about the tasted whiskey. We do not represent any producers of whiskey and we are not in the whiskey business ourselves. However, we have our personal sympathies for particular whiskeys. We are human, therefore the ratings that we give are subjective. Furthermore, they are given with comparisons to other whiskeys in mind. We decided to use convienent and widely used 100 points system.
