Talisker 11 Year Old bears a stunning depiction of The Lustrous Creature of the Depths. Matured in a combination of first fill ex-bourbon, refill, and wine-seasoned casks, the result is a powerfully sweet and smoky dram.
Nose: Beach bonfires and sea breezes – soft smoke, hints of brine and sweet, singed seaweed. Smoked butter and roasted apples emerge, sprinkled with freshly cracked black pepper.
Palate: Intense concentrated apple sweetness becomes singed and mingles with wood smoke. Brine mixes with apple juice and hot cinnamon spice. Tarry notes and coiled ropes sit at the core, with an underlying layer of char and sultana -studded sponge cake with burned edges.
Finish: Tingling spice and char linger with flashes of orchard fruit, toffee and smouldering oak.
