Talisker 57°

I’m not usually a huge fan of the super-high proofed whiskies – while it has its uses, the burn is a distraction from the flavour.  I was pleasantly surprised by the 57° – it manages to remain a Talisker while bringing significant heat.

Neat: Alcohol & peat – hot on the tongue, lots of burn.  The flavour has a little trouble getting through but still pleasant.

With ice: peat & old wood.  Definitely a Talisker.

It should be noted, malts.com no longer lists this expression for Talisker, so it may be getting rarer.

Try it? Definitely.  Buy it? Only if you’re already a Talisker fan.
