  1. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 15 yo 1989/2004 (59.9%, SMWS 14.14)
     Colour: sweet white wine. Nose: ah, this is much rougher! More spirity, with quite some peat and lemon or grapefruit juice. It’s also very mineral (flint stone) and quite yeasty (‘good’ porridge). Some very nice notes of camphor come through, and also something (nicely) perfumy. But it’s still very pure, extremely clean, and reminiscent of the best ‘mineral’ Rieslings (which means much better than BNJ, Mr. Murray). Mouth: the attack is very sweet and smoky at the same time, with some nice notes of not too ripe kiwis and lemon playing with your tongue and quite some pepper, even if it’s not the usual blast. Quite curiously, it’s rather strong but it sort of lacks body, with a rather thin ‘middle’. Nothing too serious, though, it’s still an excellent dram. The finish is long and bold again (bizarre!) on lemon juice and white pepper. Definitely a good one, with a nose that I loved. 87 points.
