  1. didi1893 scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Gentle, mild, fruity and yet tart and maritime with a pleasant sharpness on the tongue ... Tasty and tasty, uncomplicated and still interesting with an unmistakable Talikser character, a Talikser DE always makes you want the next sip and impresses me a good PLV!

    • Nose
      Creamy amber shimmers in the glass, on the glass wall of my Premium Snifter oily "legs" pull their thick strips back into the glass. Dried grapes and berries are released from an intense cloud of alcohol, roasted aromas are mixed with subtle peat and a cold smoky note, caramel or burnt sugar combine with the rubbing off of old orange peel and a few sprinkles of grapefruit juice to form a tart fruit note. Sea salt and crushed pepper, nut chocolate and orange peel, hints of cold smoke and mineral peat, plus sticky sweetness in the direction of soft caramel and melted toffee, in the background are citrus fruits with a fresh eucalyptus note and raisins. The initially intense alcohol has since withdrawn, slightly maritime notes play with minimally smoky peat and dark fruit.
    • Taste
      The first sip flows mildly, sweetly and fruity on the tongue, peat, smoke and lightly burnt wood settle on the palate immediately, pleasant sharpness rests on the tongue. The tingling sensation between the lips slowly increases, brine and colored pepper stick gently on the tongue while roasted hazelnuts and the rubbing off of orange and grapefruit peels gradually come to the fore. Caramel plays with peat, oranges and raisins are enveloped in soft smoke, little by little the chilli catch known for Talisker is noticeable on the tongue, roasted aromas dissolve from spicy wood, a hint of sour citrus fruit flits by.
    • Finish
      Chubby warm stick peat and minimal smoke on the palate, dark and dried fruits end sweetly on the tongue, hazelnuts and almonds are remembered for a long time and make you hungry for the next sip ...

    Room temperature when drinking: 25 ℃

    Viewing Eyes: golden smell Nose: refreshing first encounter, a little cucumber + floral essential oil spray, smoke, sea water, black pepper is not surprising, but there is more green mouth, salt and pepper, a little fishy smell. Then give it to fresh cream, honeydew melon, Iberian ham thin slices, the middle part is especially dense. The emerged dust marks the final chapter, smelling and refreshing, with cold chayote, mint, lifelike lime, and cucumber and potato chips. It doesn't seem to stop there, aquatic perfumes and springs are surprising and surprising.
    Taste Palate: Banana cake, lime tartness, soda, ginger sugar, cream pepper filling, black charcoal, watermelon ketone, sea fish, cold jellyfish, seaweed, loofah soup, tannin is more obvious.
    Two problems: one is that the bitterness is prominent throughout, and the other flavors are not suppressed. In addition, the layers are unclear, more mushy, and more chaotic. Finish: Long, sweet, ham, creamy bud, dust, pepper, smoked fish, cucumber body: medium, oily max, similar to empty grip Fish, with some tannins at the end,

    Nose:
    Fine smoke at the beginning paired with a pleasant sweetness. Some green pepper and more spices follow. The orange can be heard most clearly from the fruit note. The Talisker is somewhat mineral. At the back there is a hint of vanilla.

    Taste:
    Sweet with orange and peach. The oak flavor makes the malt a little dry on the palate. I feel a fine hint of chili on the tongue. Finally, I still taste coconut.

    Outlet:
    Short to medium finish with some smoke and drying oak.

    Classic Talisker character with a sherry influence. One of my favorites.

  8. Falang scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A full-body drink with a good balance between pepper, smoke and red wine. Really interesting.
    • Nose
      83 83
      Something fish-like in the nose in combination with wet wood and a burning campfire (not just smoke, but really the sensation of burning wood).
    • Taste
      87 87
      Great accumulation of an old red wine with charcoal and brown sugar. There is something peppery too, especially in the second sip. The drink is great. Almost like a small forest stream or a creek with pebblestones and wet leaves…
    • Finish
      86 86
      Woody aftertaste, oak, maybe even a hint of copper in the finish. There is a hint of peat and a feint paint-like touch too.
