Words Of Whisky:
First-fill and refill bourbon and wine seasoned
Nose: Bonfire smoke, salty sea spray and apple crumble with vanilla pods, but also dried seaweed, whispers of agave and jalapeño brine. Some ashes and cow dung too, but let’s not forget fruits such as pickled lemons and papaya.
Taste: Oily mouthfeel but overall quite ashy, salty and somewhat spicy with white pepper taking the lead. A tad more powerful than the nose suggests. More pickled lemons, a touch of coffee powder and sal ammoniac. Water brings out more citrus notes.
Finish: A sweeter touch of marshmallows accompanied by grilled pineapple and lingering maritime peat. Long.
Seriously good whisky. And the wine-seasoned casks very much stay in the background. I wouldn’t have known if they hadn’t told us. Big thumbs up for the Talisker 11 Years.
