Talisker Neist Point Bottling Note
Initially launched for travel retail, Talisker Neist Point is named after Skye’s most westerly point with the lighthouse depicted on the fold out box. It’s a no age statement release that’s said to use some of their “finest, rare casks that have been left to rest longer” alongside younger whiskies to create the desired flavor experience.
Nose: Caramel, toasted sweet spices, vanilla and, as with many of the newer Taliskers, definite smoke.
Palate: More of the same on the palate, which is no bad thing, with pear drops and fennel seed welcome additions.
Finish: Sweet smoke, sweet spice, slightly drying. Very long.
