Talisker 25 2009 Bottling Note
From Diageo's Special Releases, this 25 year old Talisker, bottled at cask strength in 2009. Part of a release of 5,862 bottles.
Had this at a premium tasting quite recently and got a handsome of spice/pepper from this. Smoke, peppermint, spice and some vanilla with citrus on the nose, the palate is spicy with vanilla, with notes of smoke and caramel. Chocolatey/peppery finish of medium length. If you add water, you will get more sweetness on the nose, but more spice/pepper elsewhere. A powerful Skye dram for those who can handle it.
