Whisky Reviews for Talisker 2010 HL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 88.00 points

  1. Kaleva scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Beautiful whisky, surprisingly complex for 8 yo expression. Very sweet and rum-like on the nose, it’s totally the opposite on its palate: minerally and industrial. The smokiness is really gentle here unlike in regular Talisker releases. Really expensive as for the age, however, this bottling definitely worth tasting
    • Nose
      Sweet, very gently smoky, vivid syrup notes (which remind rum quite a lot), dried apricots and sultanas, plenty of vanilla, some lemon juice and overripe banana notes, light minerality, a hint of farmyard. Water amplifies sugar and minerality.
    • Taste
      Gently sweet, smoky, punchy and peppery, mineral with chalky notes, quite strong industrial notes, later comes salty feeling
    • Finish
      Pleasantly sweet, tad smoky with old leather notes, cold birch ashes, a hint of raw mushrooms
