Nose

Wie schön, maritime Noten. Salzgeschwängerter Wind am Meer, kühlend. Der Geruch von feuchtem Sand. Frisch aufgeschnittener Apfel, rote Trauben. Es wird wärmend, leicht rauchig, Ledernoten mischen sich dazu, Vanilleschoten mit Pfeffer. Ein Kompott aus Schwarzkirschen.

Taste

Cremig, fast schon sämig, und mit viel Volumen auf der Zunge. Pfefferschoten-Schärfe. Ganz milder Torfrauch, Eichenstückchen. Auch auf der Zunge angenehm salzig, der anfängliche Pfeffer ist nach wie vor präsent und gibt einen guten Muntermacher ab. Daneben Kirscharoma, Rosinen, getrocknete Aprikosen. Dunkle Schokolade und gealtertes brüchiges Leder.

Finish

Mittellang, würzig, herb-fruchtig, nicht zu trocken. Ein Prickeln auf der Zunge als Erinnerung an Pfeffer & Salz aus Nase und Mund. 

Comments

Ein Malt wie gemacht für einen verregneten Tag im Herbst. Sehr einladende Nase, schöner Gegensatz von Schärfe und Fruchtigkeit auf der Zunge, ein Abgang als Echo des Gaumens.

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose

The sherry has had it's effect, this smells deliciously umami: salt, sweet and sour (fermented grapes). Furthermore, there is soft vanilla and wood shavings, moist sultana cake, prune, apricot, moist peat, wood smoke and salted almonds.  

Taste

Oily, coating, maybe a tad less expressive than the nose, but especially the sherry influences, smoke, wood shavings, soft fruit are present, along with the Talisker trademark of pepper.

Finish

Quite long, slightly drying on pepper, with wood smoke, hay, almonds and only a hint of fruit.

Comments

The stunning nose was very promising, but the rest could not deliver the same spectacular high level. Still a very good dram, mind you.

Nose

Salt liquorish, raisins, some peat, lemon peal, lemon candy, mango and oregano. The nose is very clean and expressive. 

Taste

Slightly bitter, that liquorish note persists! And there’s some raisin notes as well…

Finish

Medium long finish, more peat coming through here. And those Ooh-so-very-Talisker liquorish notes mixed with raisins and lemon. Really pleasant finish! 

Comments

Not quite as peaty as the new generation of Talisker. Rather more elegant and finely presented. Lovely stuff!

Nose

gourmand, du cake aux raisins, de l'orange confite, du chocolat au lait, de la prune. Assez vif et frais. 

Taste

Sirop pour la toux, des plantes. moyennement gras, sur le sucre, l'iode, les raisins de Corinthe, la prune, et les agrumes confits.

Finish

La patte Talisker avec des notes poivrées. Du sucre, des plantes et des zestes d'orange

Comments

Très bon whisky
