Matthew,
A solid entry level scotch. Got a liter in dufree while traveling. Good value for the cost.

Will always work as a simple Whisky for a large family meal.

A bit too much spice for my liking. It left a lingering heat at the back of my throat.

I was very surprised about this whisky. It is a newish range from Talisker, and although it doesn't state the age, we know it is probably between 6 and 8 years. However, for the price, it is a very well-rounded whisky, which includes the usual Talisker peaty flavour.

A little rough around the edges, but in an enjoyable essence of the phrase. The aromatics are as forward in peat as one would expect of a decent Scotch Whisky, and there are pleasantly prominent oceanic expressions. The price was just under 40€ (in Germany) with two quality glasses packaged alongside the bottle. Not bad at all for that price. Have I had better? Simply, yes. At the same time, I would have more redeeming factors than not in a blind tasting.

Smokey and sweet with a bit of an oakey flavour (subtle). A nice drink to finish the day on!

Peaty and spicy but reasonably ok. The peatier, smokier styles are not my personal favorites.

Did not enjoy the after taste left by the citrus this will probably sit in my cupboard for a long time

British Airways have it at their lounges in the UK and beyond (well, they had it in their Heathrow T5 and Toronto lounges anyway). Nose is definitely vintage Talisker. Smoky and peaty. Hints of citrus as well as noted above. I wasn't very enamoured with the taste. Not sure if its just because the bottle has been sitting out in the open or not but the taste was quite muted to what I'm used to with Talisker. If a friend has it, I'll definitely ask for a simple drop just so I can give it another go in more...controlled circumstances.
