Talisker 10 has always been one of my favorite core range whiskies. It was one of my first loves, when I ventured into whisky land.
It is raw and somehow untamed (off balance). It's like all the fruity, floral notes, has been battered out of it, leaving this costal, smoky, peat freak, wandering the earth alone. And that is exactly what I love about it. It has, and will always remain a steady in my collection.

Nose: Bonfire smoke. Seaweed and sea air.

Taste: Raw and coastal, smoky and peaty. Oily and malty creamy, with a hint of heather.

Finish: Long bold peaty finish with citrus and white pepper.
