Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1979 CA

  1. magic_slim scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    An all time great from a great distillery.
    • Nose
      Warming but unexpectedly not smelling very alcoholic or spirity at all despite of the 64.3%. Clean and fresh with vanilla, linseed oil and quite some smoke, mushrooms and also raw fish. After a while a wonderful fruityness comes up (apples). Really a beautiful nose.
    • Taste
      Sheer power, burning from deep inside - the 64.3% are doing their job well. Typical Talisker spicyness, plenty of pepper and salt, smoke and peat. Still fruity, but now more on lemon zest than on apples. Wow, so clean and balanced. I love it.
    • Finish
      Very long with a clean and spicy peatyness lingering on and on for ever.
