Talisker Prima & Ultima 31 year old 1988, 51.4%

Price: $25,899 Issue: Fall 2020 Reviewer: Gavin Smith

Fresh fruits and white pepper on the nose, with brine and rock pools. Very little
smokiness. The palate is also fruit forward—ripe red apples and pears—with barley
sugar. The peat is now much more apparent, along with prickly spice. Mildly
medicinal. Salt and black pepper in the long finish. Price is for entire Prima & Ultima
Collection, of which this whisky is a part. (721 bottles) £20,000
