Talisker 2005 (bottled 2015) Amoroso Cask Finish - Distillers Edition

Talisker 2005-2015 DE Bottling Note

The Distillers Edition bottlings of Talisker single malt are allowed a finishing period in casks which have previously held wonderfully sweet Amoroso Sherry. This is the 2005 vintage, which has was bottled in 2015.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sea breeze and toffee dotted with plump raisins.

Palate: The balance of sweetness and smoke tips in favour of dark chocolate, vanilla and intense fruit (though the coastal qualities Talisker is known for still impress).

Finish: More coastal wafts continue.

Talisker 2005 (bottled 2015) Amoroso Cask Finish - Distillers Edition Reviews

An excellent sweet and smoky dram

Nose: chocolate covered dried apricot tossed in chili powder and sea salt

Palate: spicy smoked butter, medium body

Finish: long and smooth, hardly any burn, a nice touch of peat and chili pepper

Overall: one of my top 3 favorite scotch whiskies along with Lagavulin DE and Balvenie 17, an excellent deal at $86.99 here in the states

Thick sweet smoke, fruity and a little salty on the nose. You might need some water for this, you feel the taste of alcohol a little too much for my taste. The smoke is as well a little disappointing, not as much as on the nose but you can taste it long in the aftertaste as well. It's the same sweet smoke as on the nose but not just as much. It's fruity as well and a little salty. you willl feel the salt more on both the nose and palate if you add some water.

Lovely stuff, should always have a bottle in.

This is as good as a Lagavulin, lovely dram if you like your peat. Smooth, and long finish.

Typical, wonderful Talisker

Smooth, medium smoky with a finish that stays on your tongue. Love it!
