Talisker Port Ruighe

The nose on this No Age Statement, 45.6% ABV expression is pure Talisker: salt, pepper and peat all clash and collide.  The taste is sharp at first, then some toffee sweetness comes through, along with more salt, dark chocolate and a sour citrus note.  Chilli and pepper in the finish along with some smoke.  I didn't find much evidence of the port pipe maturation, maybe the dark chocolate was the port influence, but this is pretty good.

    Vom Fass Caol Ila & Blair Athol Blended Malt

    This 41% ABV expression has a peat dominated nose with some cirtus and malt notes as well.  Complex and even a little nutty.  The taste is sweet and light with toffee, pepper, milk chocolate, smoked ripe bananas, perfumed heather and some more peat.  The spice and smoke work well together in the finish along with some lemon peel.
