Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1988 DL

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. Andara scored this whisky 90 points Member Senior

    Love this one, a great reason why there should be more high strength Talisker and more independent bottling. Lovely expression and true Talisker beyond todays Talisker 10. Salty like hell.

  2. grinface scored this whisky 89 points Expert Junior

    Talisker as we love it. Freshly cut wet grass. Subtle smoke and a big welcome from the seashore. Love it!

    While nose is rather weird on the first impression, this wins on the palate. Seems like an ultra-refill-cask, that was used for maturation. Could have seen the cask a little longer imho... 
    • Nose
      Ginger tea paired with smoke, sweet cream, the alcohol is not well integrated. Very young-ish. 
    • Taste
      Creamy licorice, weaker chili-catch than the 10yo bottling from the distillery. Apples, not very complex at all.
    • Finish
      Short to medium with hints of licorice, apples and oak.
