Talisker 18 Years

The 18-year-old is a lot more mature and smoother than the normal 10-year-old. The 8 more years also result in more fruitiness and sweetness.

Nosing:
Aromatic smoke, dark fruit, dried fruit, sweet and heavy, rather smooth, some spiciness
Taste:
Strong, peppery, sweet and oily, bonfire smoke
Finish:
Long with a bit of leather and darker flavours
Nosing:
Rich and fruity Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried
orange peel with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water, those maritime characteristics emerge once again dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.
Taste:
Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.
Finish:
Medium length. The characteristic chilli 'catch' in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
