Due back November 2012… A new, cask strength, American Oak matured Talisker – and a belter! Neat, there is closed and menacing power. Legs that have no respect for gravity. That talisker peppered-oak lies under all this with a small pod of vanilla… Tasted, still neat, there is typical Talisker spice, smoke, peat and a hot woodiness that makes your ears bulge, then coolness, then heat again. Add some water. Clean Talisker, sweet, aromatic.. All tongue coating, well balanced, warming, good swallow with a finish that rests on the back of the tongue with occasional forays to give sweetness at the tip too. If the 10 and 18yo are aces then this definitely is! I’d suggest square E9 on the Whisky Flavour Map just above Talisker 10yo:Smoky Added to LFW.CO.UK 5-DECEMBER-2008 Talisker 57 North Barcode: 5000281023298 FreeWee: sample: Pot Luck, Ardbeg Corryvreckan code 220, Ardbeg Uigeadail code 221, Ballechin #5 Marsala code 212, Ballechin #6 Bourbon code 225, Benriach Authenticus code 213, Caol Ila 18yo code 257, Clynelish Signatory Cask code 228, Rattray’s Blended Malt code 231, Inverarity 10yo code 102, Inverarity 8yo Islay Blended Malt code 104, Kilchoman 100% Islay code 242, Lagavulin 16yo code 243, Laphroaig 18yo code 245, CC Ledaig G&M code 246, Loch Fyne Blend code 105, Loch Fyne Liqueur code 106, Longrow 100 Proof code 249, Longrow 14yo code 218, Ballechin #7 Bordeaux code 297, Benriach 25yo code 600
