Tasting Notes TALISKER 8 YEARS OLD

Nose: aromas of lemon juice, wet ash and wax are outlined, along with tropical fruits. With a few drops of water, it becomes earthy, with hints of rubber and sea breeze.

Palate: powerful and rich. A sweet aroma of malt, seaweed and peat. The addition of a few drops of water makes it more expressive and notes of apple, menthol and candied lemons are also perceivable, enriched by sea breeze and rubber.

Finish: long, almost never ending. Peat and lemon juice.

The Talisker 8 Years Old 2018 Special Release is a noteworthy whisky. It can be appreciated neat or diluted with a few drops of water. Direct and intense, it is a very satisfying dram. One of Diageo’s best releases.

Rating: 90

This whisky is part of the best 10 whiskies from 2018. You’ll find the list in CigarsLover Magazines Winter 18 issue.
