Talisker 15 year old is truly a seaside special. Powerful single malt whisky from the Isle of Skye, filled with coastal notes and strong character – classic Scottish Island dram. If you have to name one whisky that resembles seafood, Talisker 15yo would be it.
Matured in American ex-bourbon hogsheads, filled with unique kind of fishy palate, it was a weird whisky in a bad way. I only gave it a score of 76 points and felt that even that was charity. Many years later, it was time to revisit this Carbost based Classic Malt owned by Diageo.
