Whisky beginner here, and newcomer to this site. Glad to be here!
My untutored reaction to Talisker 10 yo
Little splash of springwater
Gold (this whisky is caramelised and chillfiltered)
Oily - turpentine-like
Grass cuttings, nutshells, smoke, oyster shells, fish scales, brine, wet sea sand, old fishing boats, white pepper
Peat! Smoke - fish, white pepper and salt, making this dram oddly mouthwatering, like a seafood restaurant at night
White pepper forever!
My favourite whisky so far, responsible for my conversion to scotch drinking! Delicious and appetising.
O Great Sun Disc
Thou art very great.
Thou art robed in power
and in majesty.
Thou goest down
and it is night.
The young lion roars after his prey
