  1. Marko_I did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    I'm not a Talisker fan (I like to drink, but I do not have to), but this is / was really delicious. Beautifully balanced, elegant whisky.
    • Nose
      light, fresh sea breeze, maritime, salty, very light smoke, with a mild, fruity sweetness, orange, banana, vanilla, overall very discreet and pleasant
    • Taste
      velvety, soft, honey-sweet and fruity, orange marmalade with slightly bitter peel, banana, light pears and peaches, orange chocolate with some pepper and salt
    • Finish
      medium length, pleasant, subtle, light smoke, milk chocolate, some pepper

  2. dRambo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    very fine drop - looks very ripe - almost a touch too round, for my taste he could tolerate 3 - 10% more alcohol - then I would have to rate it much higher - Unfortunately noticeably more complex, deeper, more aromatic than current bottlings with 18yo
    • Nose
      89 89
      gentle hints of salt, very delicate fruity sweetness, orange, apple, licorice, some wax, warm wood, tobacco, flowers, black tea with honey, nutmeg, pepper, mint - dense and noble - but ripe and elegant
    • Taste
      90 90
      very soft, mild sweet, fine maritime note, citrus aromas, honey, tobacco - grated old oiled wood, very fine camp fire smoke - still perceived as smoke but already very rounded - reminiscent of smoked cheese, or ham - but rather smoked pudding, for his almost 46% very gentle and round - no trace of alcohol - only perceptible by the warmth and the mild power of the aromas
    • Finish
      88 88
      Wood and crystalline flowers, fine beeswax, very elegant, round, understated pure - licorice, nutmeg, cinnamon, cough drops

  4. pianoman scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    • Nose
      Some sea air. Apricots, oranges, sweet apples, subtle aromatic smoke. Clover, lilac.

  6. KayMeertens scored this whisky 88 points Specialist

    Nice fruitiness at this age.

      Peat, apricot, grape and pepper.
    • Finish
      Peat, plum and apricot.

  7. Luigisim scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Predominant taste of redcurrant and berries. Black cherry at the end. Most of this water of life get rested in sherry batches I suppose.
