Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1992
10 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 86.33 points
- Nice, rounded whisky. Difficult to find nowadays, though.
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.
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.
Quite long with peat smoke of course, but also a whole bunch of spices with cinnamon, pepper and ginger.
- Very tasty with an unexpected fruitiness and rather subtle smoke. Unfortunately clouded by a somewhat raw mouthfeel (can also be a daily form)
Much sweeter than the current DE, the earthy / musty character is also present, with some creativity I can imagine apricots
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
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
- Not as complex as the
18 Year Old, but still a wonderful whisky. Around 60 EUR.
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.
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.
The long finish is
warming, peppery and sweet.
- Should be in every collection.
Nuts, sea grass and salt.
Pepper, salt and hazelnut, an explosion, no smoke.
Warm, smoth and long.
