    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker
    21 yo 1951 (43% Gordon & MacPhail,
    Connoisseur’s Choice, Pinerolo,
    rotation 1972)
    Colour: dark gold. Nose: wonderful
    at first nosing, starting on big whiffs
    of coal smoke, soot, cold ashes and
    dried tangerines. Rather dry and beautifully
    austere, wonderfully pure. Develops
    then for a long time, getting much
    more honeyed. Also mirabelle plum
    jam, quinces, fig liqueur, leather,
    ‘old engine’, motor oil…
    Very complex and obviously superb.
    Mouth: not exactly powerful but certainly
    big and immensely salty. Cough drops,
    orange liqueur, malt, grilled herbs,
    bitter chocolate, bitter oranges…
    Granted, there’s a little less
    complexity than on the nose but it’s
    still wonderful. And, above all, not
    tired at all. Finish: medium long,
    all on oranges, salt, peat and tea.
    Comments: as often, this is more a
    whisky for nosing but the palate really
    stood the course. What a stunning
    nose! SGP:456 – 92 points.
