This one was finished in cognac casks (XO, baby) while the bottle itself is said to be much more carbon-savvy than usual. One of the goals here, shared with 'Parley', is to 'rewild more than 100 million square metres of ocean forest'. It all feels a little 'Nestlé' to me, but that's absolutely not bad news. As for why cognac, maybe that's because the Cognac region is kind of stretching along the ocean… No? Colour: gold. Nose: a moment please, but this is lovely! I would suppose they've got great casks from Moët-Hennessy. I believe the balance is exactly right, not cognacqy, still Talisker, with some lapsang souchong tea sweetened with honey, plus some lemon juice and those yellow peaches that can make young XOs so fragrant and lively. Awesome touches of softer tar and some menthol. Honestly, it reminds me of some much older, wonderfully polished expressions of Talisker. Mouth: but who did the blending? Smoke and citrus and Szechuan pepper and peaches and lemon and oysters (from the Cognac region, Marennes Oléron of course). Exactly right. Finish: only the finish is a wee tad sweet(ish), for unknown reasons. Let's say three sultanas per litre. The rest is Talisker, including the right amount of pepper. Comments: Diageo give €3.48 per bottle to the oceans (long story short). Let's all buy a palette and we'll sleep easy and peacefully, with a much deserved feeling of accomplishment. Seriously and more prosaically, it's a great tipple. Adidas x Parley sneakers are good too.
