Talisker 1999 Bottling Note
Lovely sweetness from the Amoroso sherry casks, this Talisker distillers edition is a wonderful example of the effects of peaty whisky matured in sherry casks.
Perfection in a glass
deserves patience. disliked it first comparing it to it´s bold brother, the 10yo.
well,that was only the first quarter bottle´s annoyed experience.
meanwhile this pal has not only outrun the 10er (by far), but has established itself as part of the absolute top in my personal tastings-rank.

I first found Talisker back in 1976 when i was working at the Kirkstile Inn Loweswater.
I was 18 then and my interest in whisky started. I have roamed around many distilleries and tasted there products but I always come back to Talisker. My son bought me a bottle of Talisker 1999 Amoroso Finish when he was there recently and I have refound my initial passion for this exquisite Brand. Nothing else compares as far as I'm concerned.

Peaty and fruity, no bitterness and long as a day without a woman, very well done, right there challenging one of my Top 3, the Yamazaki 18.
