Time fae a dram – Talisker Ten Year Old.

Av Gareth Harper
Colour – a fine golden glow.

Smell – Oooooo. Toasted barley, smoke and a touch of salt. You can just about taste this dram already.

First taste – Bang – ouch – wow! Talisker packs a punch, it smacks you right in the puss. Bold baked smoked barley, yes smoke and lots of it, dollops of peat and salty seaweed too, bitter and sweet richness combined. Complex. A big bold brash performance, but with a surprisingly sophisticated sweet finish.

A drop of water really helps bring out the flavours with this one.
8/10 A classic.
