.talisker – NAS – provenance

From Douglas Laing, we received a sample of this Talisker without an age statement as part of the #RockOyster twitter tasting. A Young and Feisty little dram, this….

46% abv, €70, single malt, non-chill filtered, natural colour

Nose: smoky, sweet, mint, eucalyptus, liquorice, red fruit
Palate: sweet, honey, liquorice, spicy, white pepper, slightly dry
Finish: sweet, honey, floral, heather, a hint of ash, medium long
Mark: +++++ 
Conclusion: Rather nice and balanced, but not something to have as an every day dram, Certainly nice enough when a spring evening outside is just getting chilly enough to need a sweater. Sadly, this is following a trend, price-wise.
