Famous for its chili 'catch', Talisker 10 from the Isle of Skye is said to be 'made by the sea' - a suitable analogy. Its mineral, phenolic nose reminds of fresh, salty seawater with iodine and seaweed. A light sweetness of citrus fruits combines with restrained peatiness. The arrival is strong with a rich note of malted barley and dried fruits, leaving a peppery chili burn on the palate. A real 'afterburner' that finishes pleasantly warming, intense and peppery. The only downside is the intense addition of caramel (E150a), to create a rather unnatural, amber-glowing color.

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.
