Talisker 10yo

Talisker 10yo

I hear a lot of people saying that Talisker 10yo is a great starter whisky for those wanting to get into single malts. Now it has been a few years since I last tasted it so couldn’t really remember, I wanted to check for myself, and I have to say, I agree. The 10 year old is a very pleasant dram indeed, well balanced with just enough flavour yet keeping it light enough to be an easy drinker, even an 45.8%. There is a sweetness there but not overpowering, it actually works really well with the creaminess of it.
