Words of Whisky:

Nose: Somewhat austere but with gentle wood smoke, wet wool, velvety wax and mineral notes too, but also juicy stone fruits, lychee and orange zest. Finally some white pepper, hazelnuts and hemp rope. Extremely well integrated.
Taste: A waxy, almost oily mouthfeel with plenty of salty, pepper-y maritime notes accumulated by seaweed, iodine and damp drift wood. Also salted liquorice, a hint of tar and gentle medicinal peat. But also soft notes of crème caramel, rum-soaked raisins and stewed fruits to give it some more depth and sweetness.
Finish: Long with lingering notes of breakfast tea, ashes and salt. Delicious.

It's vibrant and coastal, but with a depth, richness and complexity you only find in these long-aged single malts. A throwback whisky worthy of the Talisker brand. And certainly a treat to taste, (although I can't really separate the influence of the marine casks). Even for as privileged and spoiled a whisky drinker as I am, drinking 1970s Talisker is a rarity.
