Talisker 10 Year Old Skye Whisky 70cl Gift Boxed 45.8% ABV
A beautiful 20cl bottle of a 10-Year-old Single Malt. On the nose: Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine and an explosion of pepper. In the mouth it is medium bodied, mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The finish is drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
