Tasting note: Talisker 10-year-old

Talisker 10-year-oldColor: Deep copper

Nose: Fresh citrus fruits and a lot of honey paired with a light smoke aroma. Seaweed.

Taste: Salty liquorice embedded in a malty sweetness. Dry smoked oak, but this is no smoke bomb. Well-balanced.

Finish: Oak and dark chocolate, dry and bitter-sweet.

Comments: Very enjoyable 10-year-old whisky that is relatively light on peat and thus a good introduction to smoky whiskies. The sweetness keeps it well-balanced and, given some time to breath, the whisky might surprise you with a grassy note. The finish is relatively short, but the nose and taste make up for it. Pleasant throughout.

Rating: I rated this whisky 86 out of 100.
