Bonjour! Nous sommes les vaguelettes poivrées, nous sommes de retour!

On se retrouve dans un développement proche du batch précedent mais plus précis et plus retenu. Une sorte de version remasterisée en somme. La longueur interminable et prolongée à l'infini (ou presque) est de retour également. On est face à un whisky un peu plus "brouillon" mais sous contrôle. Les frissons ressentis lors des dégustations des excellents batchs 2004 et 2006 sont bien présents également!

Excellente dernière version non-réduite.

(et un tout grand merci à Bishlouk pour ce voyage à travers ces merveilleux Talisker 25)

  • Nez: Légère fumée maltée, épices douces. Il faut lui laisser le temps de s'ouvrir, car ensuite il prend de l'ampleur. Poussière fruitée, épices, abricot séché. Moins direct que les précédents.
  • Bouche: Rondeur de malt sucré, poivre, fruit jaune confit. Ici aussi, il essaie de se montrer sage, pour finalement devenir un sale gamin turbulent (mais tellement adorable).
  • Finale: Kick poivré, mais s'assagit (réellement, cette fois) ensuite. Allez, au dodo le sale gamin, maintenant.
  • Verdict: Sale gamin de merde ! Mais je t'aime quand même :-)
  • 91/100.

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.

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

Talisker 25yo (54,8%, OB 2009, 5862 btl.)

Nose: very maritime start (seaweed, brine) with some lazy peat and smoke. After a while citrus grows stronger (lemon but oranges as well). Some trademark pepper. Quite some oak and cigar boxes. Linseed oil. Compared to the 30yo, punchier and slightly more grassy but still relatively shy. Mouth: a slap in your face. Very spicy with the pepper being the most important. More sweet peat now. Some liquorice towards the finish. Nice lemon-salt combo. Very oily and powerful. Medium finish. Slightly bitter / organic onset, then more salty. Coastal notes and more wood in the end.

Very intense and very Talisker although I don’t see a real premium over the 20 years old version. If money is not an issue, have a look at the 30 years old. Around € 170.

Score: 88/100

Color
Pale gold
Nose

De la fumée, du poivre, une certaine fraîcheur des agrumes. Des embruns marins. De la pomme verte. Très bon nez bien prenant.

Taste

Attaque franche et puissante. Astringence citrique. Poivre et fumée.

Finish

Finale asséchante, poivrée, et explosive.

Comments

Subtil, complexe, et équilibré.

(goûté dans le cadre d'un face à face de 3 Talisker 25y)
