Douglas McGibbon Talisker Tasting Notes

Posted: August 26, 2015 in Scotch Whisky H-Z, Talisker

Douglas McGibbon Provenance Talisker 2008 (6 year old) 46%

Bourbon/ Code: PRV1141/ Dist: Dec 1992 Btl: Apr 2015/ Tasted: May 2015

Quite a briny and fresh nose displaying lime, lemon and elemental, manurey peat. Pleasantly rounded with a light pepper and ash note appearing.

Soft, barley, brine and sweet vanilla notes mingle with ashy, charcoaly, dusty peat on the palate. It feels more like Coal Ila than Talisker but there’s a light pepper note on the middle. Lovely, long ashy finish with a light oily/ tarry finish
