18 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 750ml
Founded in 1825 by brothers, Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill, the Talisker distillery was initially a flop. In 1880 its fortunes changed when Roderick Kemp and Alexander Allen purchased the distillery and drove it into a success, eventually to be purchased by Diageo. Fast forward to 1998 when Talisker was promoted to a founding member of the Classic Malts Selection of Diageo, upping the offerings to include 57?orth, Storm, Dark Storm, and Port Ruighe. It is now one of Diageo's most important single malt brands. Named 'Best Single Malt Whisky in the World' at the World Whiskies Awards in 2007, Talisker 18 Year Old is a simply stunning balance of peat, spice and sweetness.

Same ABV as the multi year which is amazing. It's excellent yet do I notice a multi year distinction with the 10? Not entirely certain. It is a thicker" and all the more covering mouth feel. A touch spicier and a more extended completion. I surmise I talked myself into it. I think I am feeling the loss of the botanical properties which isn't enthusiastic about my rundown yet perhaps I will figure out how to welcome that viewpoint more as my sense of taste develops in time."

Shading: Golden Nose: Delicate yet mind boggling. Nectar and splendid citrus with salt and unobtrusive smoke. Sense of taste: Orange nectar and salt on the facade of the nose followed by a warming surging smoky waiting completion. Very even.

Unique survey from Walk 2016: A drop or two of water truly opens this up like a bar-b-que pit. I don't get the ocean salt notes like most Islay single malts yet damn it completes exceptionally smoky and smooth. It resembles a long fireside talk that you wish wouldn't end. I could taste on this with a major ole smile until I drop. Update April 2018: I didnt move the first survey above from several years prior on the grounds that I didnt do as intensive of a vocation as I like to do now. Be that as it may as it would turn out my amigo @Generously_Paul as of late sent me a new pour of this one so I could do a legitimate audit. The issue was that he was utilizing a protection gas on this jug before sending me another example and we both concur that it negatively affected his container. What I do recall most is the profound smokiness that penetrates the whole taste from nose to wrap up. Pauls test felt like it has gone to some degree level and it truly smothered all the barrel and ocean notes Ive developed to anticipate from each Talisker. I recollect my unique jug truly being a quality whisky so I despite everything feel good giving this 4.5 stars however I surmise Im must discover another pour some place in the event that I truly need to plunk down and refresh my notes totally. One day Ill search out another container. I still energetically suggest this one. Roots for and thanks perusing what is basically a Seinfeld survey I fundamentally didnt compose anything about the whisky lol. Presently wheres my leftover check @Distiller?

Tasting Notes
Nose
Quite clean and fresh. There is a mixed fruity sweetness with a spicy character. The peat and smoke rise with notes of perfume and thick oak. Hints of Calvados and a touch of acidity with ground ginger.
Taste
Thick, rich and full-bodied. Notes of spicy, peppery oak, espresso beans and wood smoke. A little allspice creeps in, there is a certain zesty character lurking somewhere. The spice builds and builds with utter intent.
Finish
Long, with peppery oak.
