- This is from 1999
Salt, sea fresh breeze
Salt fudge chocolate
- Body; Full , textured.
Toffee,bitter chocolate, and toasted nuts, with late salt and pepper.
Toffeeish, then toasty. The richness of these flavours introduces a shock of contrast when the seaweed and pepper suddenly burst through.
Powerful salt and pepper.
- A dreamy whisky that looks much older than it is.
Something Old Bottle Flavor, musty oak, somehow velvety, a little sandalwood. Suddenly a bit scary. One can guess the candied orange peels, the peat almost not anymore, rather a diffuse maritime touch and a surprising hint of butter and rosemary.
buttery, slightly menthol, a lot of oak, a slightly salty note is included. In the mouth he is pretty closed.
gentle oak, not too much. The oak looks somehow old, a little orange, a slight sweet note sticks to the palate, later mint.
- A very nice Talisker wich is nicely rounded because of the double maturation
Gentle, winey, sweetness, red/black fruit (cherries), mild smokeyness with a certain complexity.
Gentle start then an explosion of peat with a creamyness.
Warm, intense, pepery and long
- A big movie theater
a lot of sherry paired with seasoning and oak
juicy-sweet sherry ... I think the sherry influence is more pronounced than the newer bottlings
a lot of salty spray
Raisins, prunes and baked apple with filling (nuts, marzipan and almonds)
Smoke ... yes? No? maybe
spicy start followed by a pronounced sweetness
a lot of fat, juicy sherry (a bit reminiscent of Glendronach)
distant, tender smoke settles on the palate
long, spicy with oak
- warm fruity Talisker with chili catch
the Talisker freshness is missing
very harmonious and complex
I touched the sky
Walnuts in sherry
in the background the sea water in warm pools on the beach
then the salty iodine-containing silt from the Wadden Sea
colorful pepper, some nutmeg
a floral touch, some flower water
very subtle and changeable the nose
the smoke is more a wallpaper, like bog and salt that burns
a chilli catch greets your tongue
colorful pepper with chocolate burn smoky in your mouth
burst cherries in hot spicy brine flows into your cheeks
some liquorice and a lot of chocolate powder
a smoky glow in your throat
like from an old wooden barrel
warm pleasant finish
fruity spicy wood
on the palate oak
a beautiful harmonic Talisker finish
- Nose: Smokier than the 10's (but of course no comparison to Islay), BBQ campfire smoke, you immediately think of a barbecue on the beach, tea-fruit mix (forest berries), baking apples, seasoning like a warm fruit punch in winter , subtle oak wood
Taste: spicy on the palate, tingling and peppery, but immediately fights a nice juicy fruit note (cold fruit tea) against it. Also some salt and a bitter oak note join it. In the wonderfully long finish, the smoke announces itself again and the seasoning (Chilli) is already significantly mitigated.
Wonderful whisky - that's how a Talisker must be. Strong and fruity at once. Wonderful harmonious dream whisky!
- Un super daily-dram
Embruns, un peu camphré. Tout ça est adoucît par le sherry qui
apporte un peu de gras et de complexité.
Beaucoup d’OBE (touches métalliques, cuivrées). Se développe sur le poivre principalement, mais aussi l’eau de mer, les coquilles d’huitre. Très bien.
La finale est plus marquée par le miel, le sucre roux et la vanille
