  1. lustaufwhisky scored this whisky 90 points Expert Junior

    Nose:
    Fresh and maritime, unmistakably a Talisker! Exotic fruits join the maritime notes. I smell some leather and chocolate afterwards, although these become even more intense after the first sip. A fine smoky note accompanies the delicious aroma.

    Taste:
    The malt from the island of Sky initially tingles a bit on the tongue and thus has a mineral and delicately salty effect. Then he swirls in the sweet / sour, orange zest and hints of sherry I taste. Finally, I find spices and the famous Talisker Chilli-catch in the taste profile.

    Departure:
    The finish is very oily with salted chocolate and leather.

    Dreamlike malt with an interesting game of fruity and peppery-spicy aromas with a gentle smoky note. Very complex and finely balanced. An absolute dream whisky for special moments.

  3. VISION_CHEN scored this whisky 70 points Expert Junior

    Smell: pungent alcohol, some old leather, some dried seafood, some rotten fruits.

    Drink: wood soup ...

    Sense: The wine has no vitality, like a turtle who is too lazy to move, full of wood, and the experience is extremely poor. If I accidentally spill the wine in the glass, there will be no slight fluctuations in my heart.
