Nose
Fragrant. A distant marine aroma. Peppery. Hint of smoke. But it is more dominated by oak. Raisins. Toffee.
Palate
Sweet and somewhat flat at mid palate. The palate is in tune with the nose. A slight salty feel like salted butter fudge.
Finish
Sweet and short.
Comment
Disappointing for a Talisker. The port finish takes it off the shore.

Nose
Plum jam, a hint of citrus and chocolate. There are bonfire notes, hot stone baked bread. Almost a fresh printer's ink note.
Palate
Sweet cured herring with beetroot and roast chilli peppers. Very viscous with tinned mandarins. The smoke starts to become more apparent in time.
Finish
Short with hints of mocha coffee.
Comment
The additional maturation has amplified a sweet side to this islander. Not a bad thing either.
