Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1979 Tactical DL

7 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.97 points

  1. detachedblue scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    A surprise, a fruity Talisker, very high quality.
    • Nose
      Mango, elegant and mellow. Sweet barley sugar and fresh melons, very old-style, not quite like a Talisker...
    • Taste
      Intense, impressive! Fresh mints, lemon oil, tropical fruits, papaya, mango and a touch of pineapple.
    • Finish
      Medium, some bitter oak.

  4. St. Pauli scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    Exceptional quality. For a whisky of this age, it's still very alive and vibrant. 
    • Nose
      Very pleasant, dignified and calming with lots of earthy notes. Sweet barley, licorice, linseed oil, chamomile, passion fruit, ripe green plum, coconut, cream and a soft trace of smoke. 
    • Taste
      Very good. It's so allround, you can hardly believe it. It has a rounded taste, but it gets mildly and pleasantly bitter towards the end. It's rather fruity, on mostly plum, some sour apple, and passion fruit on the background. Then, there is sweet malt, with a trace of smoke and fennel. Finally pepper and ginger lead you towards the finish.
    • Finish
      The finish is long, juicy, fruity, spicy on pepper, and leaves you with this pleasant feel of licorice.
