  1. hs305 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    [October, 2016]  Together with friends I emptied bottle no. 5727 that I bought for 79 Euro in October, 2002.

    In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50 - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no notes.

    Big and bold Talisker, a bit to medicinal for my taste.
    • Nose
      Vanilla, honey, peat-reek and chilli.

      With some water: more smoke and
    • Taste
      Medicinal (TCP), black pepper, papaya, almond and violet
    • Finish
      Peppery and peaty finish that lingers on the tongue tip

  3. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    An old young Talisker! Enthusiasm 4/5 Whisky n ° 1255
    • Nose
      Wax, old cellar, dust. Maritime, but also sweetness, subtle toffee, some discreet fruits that rise slowly. With water, more "greedy" (I put quotation marks because it is a Talisker all the same!) And more intense!
    • Taste
      Beautiful attack, massive! And peppered! Austere, in the Talisker style that looks a little towards Springbank. With water, a little more accessible, but not less lively!
    • Finish
      Final almost modest, compared to the mouth, all proportion kept.
