For around $70 AUD per bottle, the Talisker 10 year old scotch whiskey might be out of the price range of some who prefer the likes of Johnny Walker or cheaper bottles of whiskey.
This 10 year matured scotch is probably in the middle spectrum of price I would say. It is a very decent single malt scotch with a touch of violet and fresh nose of coastal shrubbery.
This is one of my favourite scotches to drink for the price, it is exceptionally smooth and with a dry wood-ash aftertaste. The salty peat might be a little too much for the non-seasoned scotch drinker or scotch drinker who doesn’t like overly peaty scotches.
If you are a newcomer to scotch or don’t really drink scotch, you probably won’t enjoy this as much as the the strong peat loving scotch drinker will. A great scotch that could easily be misunderstood, with a nice peppery finish on the palate.
