  4. p4blo scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Nice, rounded whisky. Difficult to find nowadays, though.
    • Nose
      Typical Talisker nose with relatively gentle smoke and citrus notes plus a bit of chocolate, but the sherry influence is not very clear on the nose.
    • Taste
      Sweeter than the regular 10yo, here the Amoroso casks clearly did the work. Soft smoke is complemented with some toffee, honey and spices - cinnamon and pepper. Complex but not overwhelming.
    • Finish
      Quite long with peat smoke of course, but also a whole bunch of spices with cinnamon, pepper and ginger.

  5. GuyIncognito scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Very tasty with an unexpected fruitiness and rather subtle smoke. Unfortunately clouded by a somewhat raw mouthfeel (can also be a daily form)
    • Nose
      Much sweeter than the current DE, the earthy / musty character is also present, with some creativity I can imagine apricots
    • Taste
      First of all, much milder than the current DE and also much sweeter in the mouth, the sharpness builds up here slowly over time, but is also not too short, here I even find a few fruit notes with strawberry / cherry and yellow stone fruits
    • Finish
      For a brief moment, smoke and the same woody spice as in # 1, leaving a somewhat numbed sensation in the mouth and a relatively light, honey-like sweetness

  7. markjedi1 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Not as complex as the
    18 Year Old, but still a wonderful whisky. Around 60 EUR.
    • Nose
      The typical character
      of Talisker is clearly recognizable on the nose, which is a good thing. The
      sherry puts a soft mattress of chocolate, roasted almonds, polished leather and
      walnuts underneath and covers it with a soft blanket of orange marmalade, mixed
      peppers and dark honey.
    • Taste
      It is very creamy and
      fiery on the palate. Quite a bit of peat and a pinch of salt go before cloves
      and a whiff of cinnamon. Then it turns sweet again on bittersweet orangettes,
      honey and a mild maple syrup. Becomes sweeter as we go along. The pepper keeps
      counter footing as well. Boy, this is a sturdy palate.
    • Finish
      The long finish is
      warming, peppery and sweet.

  8. TheMue scored this whisky 90 points Member Junior

    Should be in every collection.
    • Nose
      Nuts, sea grass and salt.
    • Taste
      Pepper, salt and hazelnut, an explosion, no smoke.
    • Finish
      Warm, smoth and long.
