    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talimbourg 23 yo 1982/2005 (49.5%, The Whisky Fair, bourbon hogshead, 222 bottles)  A brand new bottling by our Limburgian friends. Colour: straw. Nose: here’s a very clean, very straightforward Talisker, it seems. Not extremely expressive right at first nosing, with a rather typical kind of austerity, with just whiffs of lemon juice and wet hay. Not very peaty, that’s for sure. Starts to develop rather slowly, on some very nice mineral notes, such as gunflints, wet chalk, going on with notes of grape clusters, grass, fern, rubbed apple and lemon peels, whiffs of paraffin. A profile I like very much, even if it’s a little ‘Jansenist’. Very, very pure. Mouth: very similar, with more peat but also lots of sugared lemon juice, wax, various herbs (thyme, parsley, chive). The usual pepper is well here as well, as well as a little clove. It is sort of austere again – but I like austerity just as much as extravagant richness in my malts (so well, you may ask?). Anyway it’s got a medium long but perfectly balanced finish, with some very peaty notes at the retro-olfaction. Most enjoyable and recommended. 91 points.
