Whisky Reviews for Talisker 25-year-old

21 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.30 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Here again shows that Talisker age with the best of the otherwise strong coastal malts, fine notes of salt to spices and tropics, like well.
    • Nose
      Grapefruit peel, licorice, fennel, coconut, vanilla, herbal honey, cardamom, green tea, lavender, fresh tobacco, toffee and butter biscuits, fine sea flavor, as if you were standing on the shore and inhaling gently, vanilla
    • Taste
      See nose, licorice, coconut, grapefruit en masse, melon, apple peel, salt water (here more clearly than in the nose), hint of ash, hint of hay also, toffee and butter biscuits, green tea and lavender, herbal honey, creamy full
    • Finish
      Medium to long, salt, dry grasses, herbal honey and grapefruit peel, some ashes and coconut

  2. Thermidor scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    I'm oddly reminded of some Port Ellen releases. The nose is similarly elegant and detailed. This is rather more on sweet tar and less on marine notes, disregarding salt which is plentiful, than its cousins from Islay, though. I like it, but it doesn't seem to handle water very well, being best neat.

  3. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    The former OB bottlings 20 and 25 years in cask strength from the ExBourbon keg are something special.
    Plenty of sea aroma, salt, slightly peppery, delicately smoky, vanilla rich, wonderfully sweet and creamy, soft mouthfeel. Soothing. Nothing dominates. All flavors beautifully integrated. Medium-length finish. Unfortunately very expensive and the new bottlings are no longer in cask strength. Nice if you still have a vial in reserve.

    Bottle # 1550 sold empty at ebay.

  6. Toffie76 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Hello! We are the peppered wavelets, we are back! We find ourselves in a development close to the previous batch but more precise and more restrained. A kind of remastered version in short. The endless and prolonged length to infinity (or almost) is back too. We are facing a whisky a little more "rough" but under control. The chills felt during the tastings of the excellent 2004 and 2006 batches are also present! Excellent last un-reduced version. (and a big thank you to Bishlouk for this trip through these wonderful Talisker 25)

  7. Bishlouk scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Slight malt smoke, sweet spices. It must be allowed time to open, because then it grows. Fruity dust, spices, dried apricot. Less direct than the previous ones. Palate: Sweet malt curd, pepper, candied yellow fruit. Here too, he tries to be wise, to finally become a dirty kid (but so adorable). Final: Peppered kick, but settles (really, this time) then. Come on, sleepy kid, now. Verdict: Dirty kid of shit! But I love you anyway :-) 91/100 . (Note made in the context of a face to face of all Talisker 25y in barrel.)

  8. aphex scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Tasted with 2008 & 2005 releases.

    Nose: Citrus, prune, some smoke. With water, the nose is more lemony and coastal.
    Mouth: Lots of pepper. Drying. Lemon.
    Finish: Peppery, drying.
    A bit monolithic for me, the pepper overpowering the rest but no bad at all.

  10. bull10298 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    The seventh release of 25-year-old Talisker comprises whiskies matured in a
    mixture of European oak casks and refill American oak casks. The nose offers
    vibrant fruit, damp tweed, smoke, oak and ginger. Elastoplast and subtle vanilla
    with the addition of water. The palate is notably bold, with powerful chili and
    black pepper hits, followed by peat and brine. The finish is long and peppery
