Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1979 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.60 points

  1. The Macallan scored this whisky 96 points Connoisseur

    This one was an outstanding Talisker from Cadenhead, everything matched perfectly. Probably one of the best ever bottled. After-dinner at the open fire on a cold wintersday!!! :-)
    • Nose
      Orange zest, light sweetness, a touch of briny notes, beautiful sherry influences - (dried) fruit and winey (reduced: choped wood, salty like seaweed, great aroma's from sherry wood mixed with the smell of a warehouse, quite complex)
    • Taste
      A gentle start then sweet, drying and peaty, very firm because of the high alcohol (very soft, light sweetness, slightly dry and some caramel, a complexity of flavors).
    • Finish
      Long, dry and strong (reduced, more fruity/woody salty flavors in the back and soothing).
