Nosing:
Light Smoke. Slightly sweet smell develops. Does not burn the nose hairs like the (Islay whisky does) Biscuit smell slowly develops - on the second nosing.

Taste:
This whisky invites you in with the slightly sweet chilli taste then burns your tongue like there's no tomorrow! Burning! Mouthwatering if kept in the mouth without swishing.

Finish:
Warm pleasant finish after the burn subsides. Warming to the stomach.

Comment:
This is how a whiskey should be. An excellent combination of heat and sweet. It's not obviously sweet but there's enough of a hint there to balance the chilli heat smoke. Has a much more rounded, balanced taste than say the Laphroaig 10 & Ardbeg 10. One of my faves!

Nosing: Strong peatiness, hint of the seaside but not so apparent

Taste: Citrus, caramel, spicy?

Finish: Long, really long and warm

Comment: Arguably one of the best bang for your buck single malt whiskies available. Price depends on your location though.

Comment: Hey,i just bought a talisker 10,everything about the bottle looks and feels genuine,but I'm afraid that the label on the backside of bottle is slightly misaligned (like its little bit bended down to the right)
Is it just a normal mistake by the company or its Fake?
