Tasting Notes

Nose

Mellow and sweet but with an ever-building aroma of smoky pimenton, earthy heathery smoke and touches of wet (wooden) fish boxes. Complex.

Palate

Balanced and smoky (that pimenton again) which then leads into bacon, then smoked fish and then finally to freshly salted mackerel.

Finish

Smoke re-emerges. Firm.

Comment

The best so far in this series of 30yo Taliskers but to be nit-picky about it just a little more activity from the cask would have elevated it still further.
