Talisker 10 YO, 45,8 %
Talisker 10 YO…I will jump to the conclusion and let you know that this is still a lovely whisky! I tasted Talisker 10 YO for the first time two years ago. The score is still the same in my book. My husband has written about this whisky in Norwegian a couple of years ago.

Nose (22/25): Soft smoke by the seaside. Warm. Dust and ashes. After a while I come to think of the smell when you open a metallic box with hard fruit candy. It reminds me of my youth 🙂
Taste (23/25): A warm and complex taste. Maritime notes likes sea, salt and ashes from a bonfire at the beach. Smoke. Apricots and citrus.
Finish (22/25): The finish is soft and smooth. Fruitiness is dominating. The salt, smoke and citrus is lingering in the background at the very end.
Balance (23/25): A lovely whisky, really. Balanced, warm and complex. The fruitiness and citrus notes make it fresh at the same time. This is absolutely a whisky to enjoy on a dark autumn evening.
