Talisker Triple Matured Edition Review

Talisker Triple Matured EditionThis Talisker Triple Matured Edition is from the new series of drams exclusively for Friends of the Classic Malts, the first two releases being this Talisker and a Royal Lochnagar, which I will post a review of tomorrow.

All of the drams in this series feature this triple maturation which starts, conventionally, in refill casks. Next the liquids were transferred to charred American oak hogsheads, imparting spicy notes and a touch of sweet oak. To complete the conversation between spirit and oak, the whiskies enjoyed a third maturation in European Oak refill casks which softened, mellowed and integrated the aromas and flavours. Finally the whiskies were bottled at a generous 48% ABV which is unusual for non cask strength Talisker which normally is bottled at 45.8% or 80 proof.

Available at the distilleries or at selected online retailers, exclusively for Friends of the Classic Malts, these bottles are priced at £80.

I really enjoyed this, lots of sweetness in the palate here although for me i did prefer the Dark Storm over this dram.

Many thanks to Cognis PR for the official Sample

not as sweet on the palate as i was expecting based on the nose but it is there, along with the traditional pepper and smoke from Talisker.

Finish

hints of smoke and earthy notes
