Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1975

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.87 points

  1. QuarterCentury did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    One of the more impressive whiskies - a 34-year-old Talisker, distilled in 1975,
    packaged inside a small wooden cabinet in the shape of a boat and
    accompanied by a pair of heavy bottomed crystal tumblers made by
    Glencairn Crystal. There`s even a disc of copper from one of their wash
    stills embedded in the wood. A deluxe presentation for a premium whisky.

    Just to add to the confusion:

    Claimed to be 1975, bottled in 2011, and 34yo??? 

    I would say 1976 (no year is mentioned on the bottle or box), but is it marketed as a 34yo, as I understood from Diageo...

    I tasted this (already 7 weeks ago) in London. It is great, no doubt about it. Pricewise you`d better not be a Talisker Collector... After this one I tasted the 30yo OB from 2010, which I found to be the better one. It was more of a mouth full.
