    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 1953/1975 (43%, Berry Bros) Colour: gold. Nose: starts quite malty and very nutty, with a lot of presence. Quite some smoke but a rather discreet one at first, and then it grows bolder, together with something superbly animal and resinous as well as quite some lemon balm. Gets then really maritime (sea air, all sorts of shells). A little liquorice. Keeps developing on coal and pine sweets, hints of bitter oranges, a slight old bottle effect and quite some old yellow Chartreuse. Really beautiful!Mouth: rather syrupy like an old Sélection de Grains Nobles wine, with also a very structuring oaky backbone (old wood) and silky tannins. Lots of body considering it’s a 43% malt that spent 30 years in its bottle. We have lots of herbal teas after that (verbena, camomile, hawthorn) and then the spices arrive (white pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg. Very little peat or even smoke. Goes on with Seville oranges, dried tangerines and a little liquorice, getting amazingly bolder with time, to the point where it tastes almost like a 100° proof whisky. Hints of strawberry jam. Excellent finish, with a little smoke now and still lots of dried tangerines and teas. Pure pleasure, 92 points.
