An amazing single malt which delivers from the moment it hits your lips, until (after almost 1 minute) it finally reaches your toes! The initial experience in the mouth can only be likened to the stardust bags I used to eat as a child, with an amazing array of flavours and spices, followed by a great smokey afterglow. Having given the palate a fantastic, mouthwatering experience, you then feel the warmth moving through your throat and into your chest, down your arms, and into your legs, and finally tingling your toes. A fantastic dram on a cold winters day, and will certainly help save your heating bills!

After 4 other different CS heavely peated and smokey whiskeys this one still delivered a taste sensation and surpassed al others.Very complex. Very rich. Very epic.

One of my favourites just sipping it now.. for a cask strength it is velvety and an intense sweetness.. the oily warmth is extremely pleasant in the finish.. for a cold night.. kind of Ardbeg's pretty sister and shes a bad girl . lol

I treated myself to a bottle of this when visiting the Talisker factory and couldn't believe how lush it tasted. Just the tiniest drop of water to release the flavour and the finish is rich and has a hint of dark chocolate on the palate after the sea-spray smokiness. A fine malt indeed.

This damn near blew may head off my shoulders.TCP, coal tar this is highly medicinal. Must be watered down to bring the oils out of the dram.Very warming but take care if you take your dram neat
