Talisker 57° North Bottling Note
A cask strength bottling from the Talisker distillery, bearing no age statement. This was named for the Isle of Skye sits on the line of latitude 57 Degrees North.
The nose is very pungent and full. Notes of sour citrus develop with rich peat smoke. Hints of peppered oak and notes sea spray pounding stones and a little kelp. The palate is thick and full. Creamy manuka honey and lemon juice, notes of peppered oak and spice, a little butter perhaps and plenty of dry wood. The finish is long with black pepper and dry oak.
Way better than 1 1/2 !!
More soft and round than usual, but still good :-)

Whoever rated this 1 1/2 stars is a moron.
This is one of the finest malts to come in at a very reasonable price point I've tasted.

I wouldn't go so far as to use the internet to insult someone's intellect but it is definitely better than 1 1/2. With one or drops of water, it has an extremely bold, complex, daring flavour and a most pleasing length which allows the different tastes to develop on the pallet. Worth getting & a favorite of mine.

This is as good as the Talisker 10 in my opinion - despite the strength, it's actually gentler on the nose when sampled neat, but it becomes a peaty bruiser with a touch of water. It's a bit like getting 2 whiskies for the price of 1.

I was fortunate enough to pick up a bottle of this for £42.50 (£20 under the rrp, wahoo!).
Cracking malt this, absolutely a Talisker, so you know what you are getting. Thick mouthfeel with a sweetness in there somewhere and dairy (think cream/butter). Pepper kick on the back and nice long finish, a very well balanced dram. Worth it at full price, let alone the bargin I picked this up for. Would buy again.

A buddy of mine gave me his last glass of this stuff and it was the best scotch I ever had. Unfortunately while looking for my cigar lighter I accidentally kicked the glass into the fire which erupted in a blaze of awesomeness that lit up my back yard. Regardless even though cut short it was very good and I highly recommend.
