Talisker 57° North Bottling Note
A cask strength bottling from the Talisker distillery, bearing no age statement. This was named for the Isle of Skye sits on the line of latitude 57 Degrees North.
The nose is very pungent and full. Notes of sour citrus develop with rich peat smoke. Hints of peppered oak and notes sea spray pounding stones and a little kelp. The palate is thick and full. Creamy manuka honey and lemon juice, notes of peppered oak and spice, a little butter perhaps and plenty of dry wood. The finish is long with black pepper and dry oak.
