Tasting note from WhiskyNote for reference:
The generous dose of Talisker is clearly noticeable. Relatively gentle, ashy smoke, a bit of briney sharpness, kippers, some pepper and leather saddle. In the background there’s a faint fruity note (peaches maybe) and a hint of milk chocolate, as well as some cinnamon spice.
More toasted oak spice now. Pepper, cinnamon and ginger, mixing with light mentholated notes and after a while also a waxy side. Hints of yellow apple, vanilla and acacia honey. Drops of cough medicine and dried seaweed.
Medium and fairly dry, with some of the chocolatey notes, ashes and light herbal notes
