Product Description

By using some of Talisker's" finest, rare casks that have been left to rest longer" Talisker Neist Point delivers an incomparable flavour journey with an extra-refined, sweet, smoky, finish that engulfs the palate, wave after wave.

Named after the lighthouse at the most westerly point of Skye and originally for Travel Retail and delivers the distinctive distillery salt and pepper smoke in spades.

Our Tasting Notes:

Nose: Classic coastal-maritime aromas and more than a hint of smoked kippers on a beach peat fired bbq, some marmalade and salted caramel along with richer, sooty, tarry coal smoked dried fruit, gingercake, honeycomb and a touch of toasted caraway seeds.

Palate: Rich dark fruit (think raisin and mince pie filling over peppery-aromatic wood smoke) a sort of crunchy peanut butter texture/mouthfeel and more of that marmalade note. Salted sourdough toast, fennel, salted smoked fish and coastal bbq nuances creep into proceedings on a fat and oily full bodied palate.

Finish: The oily and rich body lingers with more dark fruit (sherry soaked dried fruit for a whisky tea loaf cake) smoked kippers and dark marmalade. The sooty-tar like smoke, fennel and crunchy peanut butter also make a final appearance in a long and satisfying peppery finish.

Classic Talisker with a darker Sherry wood edge, well balanced throughout and one for the fans of the Storm and Dark Storm releases.
