  1. asmazda scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nothing wrong with this but I just find it a bit boring, especially if the bottle has oxidizied for a while.

  5. Alex scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    Not big and bold whisky, but luxurious and elegant with just the right amount of peat smoke. Love it. There is always one in my cabinet - of course for drinking.

    Talisker is known for its unique spicy flavour with an above average peat content (while not as peaty as an Islay malt). The "spicy" character (also described as "firey" or "salty") comes from the water, malted barley, distilling method, barrels, and aging process used by the Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye. In 2007 Talisker 18 year old won "Best Single Malt In The World 2007" at the World Whiskies Awards.

  7. mmaclean scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Love this 18 yr old, sophisticated, vibrant. This is a deep and rich whisky! Lots of oak, lemongrass, fruit and a knock out punch at the finish. Much like the one Rocky Balboa put on Mr. T. in the final round in RockyIII. Powerful whisky and is getting to be a challenge to find.

  8. Feusi scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    The typical Talisker in the nose, Island, peat and smoke, combined with a balanced sweetness, round and pleasant. Any time to drink.
