Whisky Reviews for Talisker 2009 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 85.18 points

  1. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A fairly round but also ordinary smoker, nothing special but quite easy to drink. A bit too thin in my opinion.

    Notes from a blind tasting.

    Soso, Talisker. But it is very unusual, much smokier, no chili catch, not maritime. Maybe Talisker bought some new make on Islay and gave it to UAs ...

      Nice smoke at first, a mixture of campfire and coal fire, malt and citrus notes right behind, while the smoke begins to become phenolic. After a while, peaches, mineral notes, a strange chemical smell in motion, the amount of smoke has decreased significantly. The fruit notes are getting stronger, the malt overall sweeter. Caramel and some camphor can also be found. Warmth tickles phenols and alcohol first, then dark and sweet malt notes come to the fore, finally very strong acid notes and disinfectants.

      Sweet and also extremely mineral, like chewing on stone dust, later dark block malt and lemon. The alcohol is not too weak, the mouthfeel is quite dense, it dries off heavily with hints of cocoa. A little liquorice complements the notes.

      The finish begins with liquorice and dry and then slowly becomes sweeter again until ash remains on the tongue even longer. The finish is quite long and also warms up a bit.
