Nose
Back to smoke,this time with an added leathery note.Smouldering leaves,malt,cypress wood. Smooths slightly with water but still robust with dense smoke,salted fish,dried seaweed. Oily rich and rewarding. Would be great with sashimi.
Palate
Slow and chewy. Fine grip. Broad and complex. Needs water to bring out a mix of dry/charred smoky notes.
Finish
Long,tingling.
Comment
The polar opposite to Talisker 18. Rugged and warming.

Nose
Intense,big. Farmyard by the shore. Dry straw,briny whiff. Then a fruit note spring up. Autumn fruit. Apples and pears and sultanas.
Palate
Lusciously velvety. Deceitfully smooth then a spicy outburst shakes the tastebuds. The sweetness comes back with maltynotes.
Finish
Soothing on caramelised nuts. Hint of nougat. Touch of smoke. Salty feel.
Comment
The palate does not show as much complexity as the nose and finish. But a rich interesting character.
