Released in 2004, this beautifully orchestrated Talisker 25yo has a full, generous palate, with hot spices balanced by delicious shortbread & syrupy notes. A really awesome malt from a remarkably reliable distillery.
Nose: Honeysuckle, beeswax, hints of fruity smoke, pineapple, lychee juice, carbolic soap and baked beans hiding behind.
Palate: Freshly cut boards, tropical fruit syrup, muddy peat, hint of violet, juicy orange, light smoke.
Finish: Anis, light wood and sawdust, floral notes linger.
Comment: Elegant and reminiscent of much older drams. The body teeters on the edge of too woody for my taste, but claws back points with an excellent nose and finish.
