Talisker 25 Year Old Malt Whisky 2009 Bottling

A limited edition Talisker, natural cask strength single malt whisky.
From the only distillery on the Isle of Skye.
Thirteenth limited release to be offered by the distillery.
From American Oak and European Oak refill casks.
Interesting to compare with previous bottlings of this age in the same series, all of them intensely smoky, smooth and sweet, yet still with a salty depth and a trace of Talisker's chilli pepper 'catch'
Just 5862 individually numbered bottles available worldwide

Tasting Notes
Talisker, trebled. Enigmatic and charming, yet still vigorous. An interesting combination of three of the four primary tastes - balanced sweetness and acidity, with salty depth
Appearance - Pale amber. Good beading, attractive viscosity.
Nose - Mellow, with little prickle. Juicy and sweet, with a trace of smoke and pencil boxes behind. Soon opens out to heathery, earthy peat. After that, fruit - fresh baked apple cake, banana, quince. Finally, salt - seaweed and ocean. Ever changing, becoming more delicate in time. Water raises orange peel and brings in more maritime notes to balance the sweet fruitiness - warm sand, dry seaweed
Body - Medium. Silky smooth.
Palate - Fine Talisker character - not as powerfully peppery as younger expressions - drinking well at natural strength. Sweet, with some salt. Coats the lips, never mind the tongue. Begins with soft, sweet apple sponge in custard, then a drier crisper character emerges on the middle of the tongue. Builds in power and heat as the inevitable pepperiness comes forward. Yet also continues sweet, returning to its unctuous beginnings. Adding water smoothes the texture and merges the flavours. Again starts sweetly, with balancing acidity overall and plenty of salt.
Finish - Medium to long. Lulls you into a sense of security, then pounces. Warming, with both pepper and, unexpectedly, peppermint.
