Comment: I don't even want to get into too much details in here. This whisky is one of the best and will be my friend for lifetime. That is for sure! I think it can be good for both peat lovers and also sweat and more delicate whisky fans. It is smoky, it is maritime, but is is also very complex, very oily, very sweet, spicy but not too much and has this perfect profile of oakiness which I fell in love in JW black, but here is much more prominant. Absolutely must try for any whisky lovers.

Medium to long Finish.
I definitely will try get some other expressions in local stores. For me really decent whisky, in my country i should pay about 45 euros for it and for me it worth that money

very different from my expectation. It's not something with see weed and peat. It's the one with alcohol with little bit smoke and sweetness.

Comment: A typical Talisker character is hidden in this whisky. A freshness of the seashore appears on the nose, accompanied by dried fruit, chilli catch, and spices. The palate is spicy at the beginning, but then becomes milder and fruity (with dried fruit dominating). Traces of smoke can also be perceived, but on the nose rather than on a tongue. The aftertaste is medium, spicy and nutty.
Together with a Skye, Talisker 10 could be a good entry point to the world of Talisker and other smoky whiskies
