    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 1957 (53.5%, Gordon & MacPhail, 1970’s)  Colour: deep amber. Nose: frankly more resinous, smokier, even more on crystallized fruits, with a beautiful sherry. Very maritime at that, with an incredible amplitude. Amazing development on coffee, flints, coal, charcoal, candied grapefruit, dried tangerines, Seville oranges again, cappuccino… A beautiful ‘minerality’, with the sherry mingling superbly with the smoke. Keeps developing on something herbal (fresh parsley), getting even richer, on furniture polish and leather, cigar box… ‘Wow!’ Mouth: a powerful attack on sherry, smoke and pepper just as it ‘should be’. Fabulous dryness, lots of bitter chocolate, armagnac-soaked prunes, superb silky tannins… Goes on with salty liquorice, old walnut liqueur, blackcurrant jelly, all sorts of dried and crystallized fruits (no need to list them all)… The finish is amazingly long, on pepper, prunes and walnut oil as well as strong chestnut honey and orange liqueur, with kind of a bitterness that makes for a beautiful counterpoint to the relative sweetness. This one reminds me of the famous Springbank 12 yo 100° proof selected by Samaroli – which means it’ll be no less than 96 points.
