Product Talisker 18
Alcohol 45.8% ABV
Aggregate Score 93
COLOR
A nice light bronze like maplewood, light paduk sawdust, honey, buttery brown sugary reduction sauce, or perdition diamond copper.
NOSE
Elegant nose with a hint of peat, vanilla, smoke, pepper, cherry cough drops, grapefruit, nuts, and toffee.
FLAVOR
This rich dram provides a profusion of balanced flavors including nuts, toffee, caramel, salt, cream, charcoal, huge wood and malt.
FINISH
A beautifully long finish continues the pleasure after each sip.  There's a medley of inter balancing flavors that vie for one's attention: rich luscious toffee, salt, smoke, some cooked peat, cocoa powered almonds, and cinnamon.
COMMENTS
Talisker 18 is one of the most beautifully balanced, deep throated, drams available.  It's way more difficult to describe than it is to enjoy.
