Talisker Neist Point

Initially launched for travel retail, Talisker Neist Point is named after Skye's most westerly point with the lighthouse depicted on the fold out box. It's a no age statement release that's said to use some of their "finest, rare casks that have been left to rest longer" alongside younger whiskies to create the desired flavour experience.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose Caramel, toasted sweet spices, vanilla and, as with many of the newer Taliskers, definite smoke.

Palate More of the same on the palate, which is no bad thing, with pear drops and fennel seed welcome additions.

Finish Sweet smoke, sweet spice, slightly drying. Very long.

Reviews for Talisker Neist Point
I wanted this to be great
Nose: Chorus line of peat...very balanced peat.

Palate: Peat assaults the palate unevenly but oddly balances out towards the end. Where's the brine?

After: The peat dominates the air for some time.

Complex 2
While I agree with some sentiments below that the price is going the way of all things whisky these days; too much, the quality of the whisky is of interest to many. I've had a chance to spend more time with this after purchasing a bottle, and urge others who think it is not rich to recognize it is subtle, not overpowering (e.g. Dark Storm). Price aside, this has some complexity lacking in the fantastic 57 deg N. The central note is salty and sweet peanut butter, from nose to finish, but there are many other subtle hues surrounding, including orchard fruits and their meadows. A Payday bar mixed with Now n' Later hard candy for the Yanks. And damn well balanced!

If you like Talisker buy this whisky
A wonderful dram, meant to be sipped on a snowy night in front of a fire with a lover.

This whisky is definitely overpriced. Too common, not enough rich flavoured. Nose and palate are both inexpressive and faint. Dark Storm and 57 North are rather more complex and rich.

I disagree with the first reviewer rather strongly. It may not have an age statement, but the flavor is perhaps the most complex and well-balanced Talisker I have tasted. Less of some of the traditional distillery flavors such as saltiness, but it has a nice soft fruit flavor and a rich spiciness. This one speaks softly and for a long time, for savoring.

Full of flavor and smooth, a very drinkable dram.

Not what you want from a Talisker.
Too young by far, you notice the lack of maturation on both nose and palate.
I was extremely underwhelmed.
