Talisker Distiller's Edition Amoroso Sherry Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky
|Category||Single Malt Scotch|
|Region||United Kingdom, Scotland|
There's near perfection in the bitter-sweet harmony which is such an enthralling feature of this truly classic whisky, as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit. This is beautiful stuff. Extremely sharp and well focused; no lingering, rambling smoke here. There is also a quite wonderful sultana sweetness. One of the most tantalising sherry noses you can find - certainly the cleanest. Remarkable - the stuff of legend. A magnificent start - the peat, crisp at first, softens to enormous richness in the mouth, then wafts around the palate with sweet, roasty malt and a heathery dryness. The sherry keeps back Talisker's usual pepper, replacing it with luscious, slightly oily sweetness - ripe, juicy fruit and vanilla. Deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Enormously chewable and from beginning to last exemplary in balance between sweet and dry, with sweetness always having the slight edge.This rich Talisker Distiller's Edition is delicious over ice or with a drop of water.
