A powerful whisky. On the nose, peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, and a citrus sweetness. A rich, full-bodied whisky with notes of dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke on the palate and strong barley-malt flavours. Warming and intense, peppery at the back of the mouth. The Talisker 10 Year Old is huge, long, warming and peppery in the finish with an appetising sweetness.
