  1. sagara-kun scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    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.
    • Nose
      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.
    • Taste
      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.
    • Finish
      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
    • Nose
      very subtle
      like a dream
      which starts very slowly and in the mist
      fog
      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
    • Taste
      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 ...
    • Finish
      medium
      Salt, sea
      a little chocolate flavor
      soft orange
      a touch of spicy flavor
      a short violet note
      which turns into malt sweet
