Insider knowledge: Talisker 1996 (bottled 2008) Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whisky is named whisky by virtue of the fact it's from Scotland. If distilled in America the spelling would be Talisker 1996 (bottled 2008) Amoroso Finish - Distillers Edition whiskey, as opposed to whisky.
Nose: Fragrant, rich, peaty, smoky and spiced. Fruity too. Very malty.
Palate: Tangy peat, fresh and crisp, heather honey, thick grapey notes, oily and vaniilla rich.
Finish: Dark chocolate, custard, smoke, black pepper and peat.
