  1. EinSpatzUnterVielen scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    This is an all-round top Talisker, extremely tasty and intense, but very harmonious and balanced, not in the least brutal, but creamy and extremely versatile. Class part!
    • Nose
      Lemon! Smoke! Algae on the beach, salt spray, old damming, thyme, rosemary, grated geranium, passion fruit, apples, plum jam, kumquat, lilac, dog roses, vanilla, light honey, fresh green pepper
    • Taste
      massive, oily, there it is, the Talikser-Chili-Catch, together with very dark chocolate, espresso, lemon rind, passion fruit, kumquat and orange the malt rolls over his tongue ... then he gives room for bitter herbs, thyme and rosemary Even the tart grated geraniums are there, then it calms down and a lot of vanilla and light honey spread; a second sip reveals more of the green fresh pepper and also of the smoke, which appears very aromatic and is again accompanied by algae, tart herbs and espresso. Great creamy mouthfeel, all very intense and very yummy
    • Finish
      long, creamy-spicy, fruity, but also sweet, the maritime character plays great again here, slightly tarry, salty, with lots of espresso and beautiful dark chocolate and honey-sweet lemon juice, he slowly sounds ...

    A fascinating understaded Talisker. Lovely. Now the other bottles of Talker.
    • Nose
      Fresh and minty.Herbal notes. Also fruity like: citrus die d fruit. Bloomy: sweet cicely,geranium. The smoke shows in a mix of ink,tar and moor burn.Also smoke maritime notes.
    • Taste
      Huge and oily, tongue clinging, but with heat and a constant background mutter of peat which stubbornly refuses to leave the mouth. Water makes it sweet and salty, and more citrus.
    • Finish
      Long,smoked but restrained. Very good.

  7. nhuber scored this whisky 92 points Expert Senior

    This is one of those whiskies that makes you believe... Incredible nose, maritime smoky a bit oily you just cant get enough and you immediately know it will be great.... Also very good in the mouth, full force in a nice way, very complex and just very good... 91/92p not sure what people want if they rate this whisky 85 or below... A typical Glenfarclas or what?

    A Bodega Sherry European Oak cask fill, with a lovely nose of warm, worn leather
    and exotic spices. Peatier with the addition of water. Early citrus fruits on
    the palate give way to sweeter apples; then characteristic Talisker peat and
    black pepper come through. Sweeter and nuttier with water. The lengthy finish
    exhibits lots of smouldering peat and insistent spices.
