  1. Othorion scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoke, sea breeze, brine, vanilla, lime juice, apricot jam, apple compote, slightly earthy-mellow, honey
    • Taste
      Smoke, spicy, sweet, black pepper, apple compote, a hint of chili, orange zest, vanilla, salt, almonds,
    • Finish
      Orange marmalade, black pepper, smoke and vanilla. Pretty long

  2. thijs100 scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    Very good stuff from Talisker. The people working for this Skye-distillery certainly know what they are doing. I wonder if the newer bottlings of the 18yo are just as good?
    • Nose
      Some light smoke is accompanied by brine. Then lots of fruit appears. Lemon, underripe banana, nectarine and peach. It also has a floral quality. Yes, this is proper stuff.
    • Taste
      Soft at first but then some intense smoke and pepper. Pretty dry. But it mellows after a while, which is when the fruit returns, this time apples and pears. And there's some marzipan too.
    • Finish
      Smoky and peppery, giving it a beautiful long fruity ending.

  4. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    A typical, maritime malt. The phenolic component of the smoke surprised me a bit. Can you drink well at every opportunity without finally convincing me.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Moderate phenolic smoke note. Strong vanilla, salt. A light sea breeze. A hint of overripe bright fruits.
    • Taste
      86 86
      Smoke, vanilla. Slightly peppery, spices, salt. The alcohol could be better integrated.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Departure quite intense and long, smoke, maritime notes. Salivation ons.

  10. eleiko5 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Talisker 18 yo (45,8%, OB 2007)

    Nose: sweet and fruity. Peat smoke in the background. Chocolate coated orange. Vanilla. Flowery honey. Some marshmallows. Nectarine? Quite feminine for a Talisker if you ask me. Mouth: soft arrival, still rather sweet but getting a powerful, smokey kick after a few moments. Peppery with subtle peat. Getting drier on spices, with a bit of sherry burried somewhere underneath the smoke. Finish: classy development, soft and balanced. Vanilla and wood. Still some pepper.

    Flawless Talisker and surprisingly fresh whisky. Around € 65.

    Score: 87/100
