..... the big peat-bruiser Malt from Skye, ... so it's the peat-monster NOT from Islay, and we like the change.
Amazingly complex for such a big-flavoured whisky and, along with Caol Ila, makes the twin foundation flavour signature of the Johnnie Walker Range.
Big Barley, pepper, fennel-liquorice and wet-wood smoke along with an ozone freshness.
Older versions amongst the Indi's are variable, and will be sometimes called 'tactical' for non-identity reasons.
Anyone who wants to learn about Malts must always try this.
It is an education.
Talisker 10 y.o. 91/100

  1. Stands alone, doesn't it? So lively, that fiery pepperiness... Does the 18yr have significant nuance? I have only had the 10.
