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.

Comments

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?

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

Yellow gold
Nose

Etonnamment frais. Des agrumes, la fumée montant en puissance par la suite.

Taste

Amertume de pelure d’orange, de la vanille et du miel. Assez fruitée, le poivre se fait discret. Agrumes présents.

Finish

Le poivre se révèle plus, de la fumée sur la langue. Le poivre blanc se développe et irradie.

Surprisingly fruity with apple compote, peach, dried apricot, tangerine and grapefruit. Also chocolate, pear, vanilla, pear, fried banana and a bit of mint. Peat smoke and salt are way less present than in regular Taliskers. Very tasty with a very full nose, but I think it would have benefited from a higher ABV to give it a bit more power.

Remember - whisky scores and impressions are highly subjective and situational by nature - so don't go and buy whisky according to someone else's taste...
