16 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.58 points

  1. jocmueller did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Bottle # 0619 sold empty at ebay.

  2. malthead-sven scored this whisky 96 points Expert Senior

    A fitting metaphor for this malt would probably be a "gentle comet impact", he almost accomplishes the squaring of the circle with its mild elegance on one side and the heavy old spice on the other. A full-length malt moment ...
    • Nose
      ripe mangoes, with vanilla flavored herbal tea, marzipan, all very fine, yet clear in the nose, almost mesmerizing, brown candy sugar, some wood glue, with water then jelly bananas, Haribo confectionery, a touch fresher and now slightly smoky , Honey and moss
    • Taste
      starts tingling on the tip of the tongue, slightly smoky, creamy, creamy, a little like champagne, Brazil nuts, very mild pepper and a little bacon
    • Finish
      the further he pulls down, the bigger the mild but intense heat he radiates, like a rising summer sun, leaves a dry sweetness

  3. Calmar scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    Beautiful multifaceted, enchanting molt, a lot of shades, halftones, power and pressure, and then a certain lightness and airiness, an excellent representative of the distillery, traditionally adds to development.
    • Nose
      Restrained, dry, old leather goods, lemon zest, mineral notes - drying plaster, stone crumb; creamy notes - boiled condensed milk, toffee; dry boards, light shades carpentry workshop.
    • Taste
      Powerful, rich, oak in all its variations, light smoky-ash notes, lemon zest, salt, bitterness of young bark, nuts, riot of lemon pepper, creamy notes, toffee, floral-grass motifs
    • Finish
      Spicy, refreshing, oak, lemon peel, creamy notes, ash and pepper, leather goods, floral shades, bitter chocolate, nuts.

  4. Missalotta scored this whisky 93 points Connoisseur

    It's fun to have such an old Talisker in your glass. Over time it has become a bit expensive.
    • Nose
      Mango, banana, some honey a touch of smoke
    • Taste
      slightly salty, some smoke but nicely integrated. creamy. Over time, the salt & smoke comes a bit more intense and also some citrus and pepper comes to light.
    • Finish
      It warms a long time, would be something for the winter before the fire. A slight sharpness on the tongue remains present
      (Chili or pepper)

  9. bull10298 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    As with the 25-year-old, this 30-year-old Talisker, the fourth ?edition? from
    Diageo released in 2009, has been matured in refill American oak casks and
    European oak casks. Almonds, vanilla fudge and gentle smoke on the nose. The
    palate is smooth and fruity, with hints of vanilla. Less of a blunt instrument
    than that of the 25-year-old, yet retaining all of Talisker?s characteristic
    fire in the belly, with no shortage of pepper. Big, confident, citric chili
    notes linger for a very long time in the finish.

  10. eleiko5 scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    Talisker 30yo (53,1%, OB 2009, 3000 btl.)

    Nose: obviously the same family as the 25yo, but gentler and creamier. Less smoke, less maritime notes (still there, just muted). More fruity notes, added hints of vanilla and toffee. Hints of almond pie and apples. Very warm, rather sweet and simply lovely. Mouth: fruity again (candied oranges, lime) with some candle wax. Interesting how it starts very feminine (almond milk) but gets more turbulent over time (more peat, salt, strong tea) with a peppery tang. Finish: very long, citrus with pepper. Some salt and smoke.

    Well, Talisker 30yo offers a few added levels over the 25yo. The sweet and fruity side is better developed and it balances all the typical Talisker elements very well. It’s richer and very refined. Around € 240.

    Score: 92/100
