Whisky Reviews for Talisker 2008 ED

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.25 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    Pleasant single malt, rather good as for this age. Nothing special but easy-going and basically with a good balance. The only disadvantage is bitter oaky aftertaste, which I personally didn’t like.
    • Nose
      Smoke with some rubber notes, fresh maritime motives, green sweet pear, lemon, vanilla fudge, wet limestone. Water opens up candied lemon zest and light oak notes
    • Taste
      Slightly sweet, light minerality, peppers, ginger, garden berries (currants, some gooseberry), oak on the background
    • Finish
      Medium long, getting dry quickly, quite bitter, smoky, oaky, malty, slightly sweet at the end

    • Nose
      A nice sweet smoky note pours into my nose. In addition, salt caramel and a slight pepper sharpness. Also ripe fruits and then shortbread butterfingers. But there is also an adhesive plaster somewhere.
    • Taste
      Malty-sweet onset with a fine hint of smoke and a slight pungency. Some honey and dark fruits. And here he is again the chili-catch. A nice creamy mouthfeel.
    • Finish
      Long finish. Talisker-typical, the sharpness is lasting, but pleasant. The malty sweetness turns into dark chocolate.
