Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1953 GM
3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.84 points
- The nose is really promising indeed with great obe, even some papaya and pineapple, the mouth is a bit more muted with peat, herbs and citrus, very good.
- As often on these junkies, the nose is well above. He is fantastic. In the mouth and finish, we stay a little on our hunger as the aromas are melted. It remains a character apart that is not boring for a sub.
The empty glass stinks fruits and caramel. A delight.
There is nothing to say, the nose has a strong personality. The salty side of Talisker comes out right now, but is very melted and everything, much less aggressive than on the 25 / 30yo of the 2000s. We add to that a spread of fresh fruit. Ripe peach, and a very light touch of passion fruit. The more the nose opens, the more you feel a hint of medicinal that adds a welcome complexity. Then to conclude, a light chocolate veil. Very soft with its 40 °, one does not get bored, even if one can only dream of a few more degrees.
It is very soft, almost a little watery. We stay on the fruit and the sweet. We forget here the medicinal side but we keep the character melted and salty.
Slight hint of bitterness in the finish. It stays on the main fruit and the salt survives the other aromas. We will like a little more length.
- a very typical Talisker
however, his notes are more hazy
which makes him very sensual
Enjoyed with sensitivity, he is gorgeous
yes! I'm in heaven
like a dream
which starts very slowly and in the mist
cool soft sand under your feet
the fog smells of morning sea air
with a touch of spice and salt
and a fresh orange scent
Your feet are touching a dead cancer
he smells like his sweetish meat
and salty to the sea
the waves wash it back
only the wet sand sticks to your feet
a cool noble start
Your mouth slowly fills with a charming touch of salty sweet chocolate
wow so soft and subtle
a reminder of the beach like a greeting from afar
Beach lilac is blowing in the wind ...
a little chocolate flavor
a touch of spicy flavor
a short violet note
which turns into malt sweet
