Tasting Notes
Craig DanielsNose; seaweed and bacon, very sweet malt, some aspartame and a farmyard leatheriness. Palate; smoky, leathery and very saccharine sweet. There's a disconnect between the Talisker leatheriness and an almost Speyside sweetness; almost like it was 50/50 Benromach 6 Peat Smoke and Talisker 10. The younger material is almost certainly from bourbon wood and more heavily peated than the usual Talisker.
