Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:
Talimburg 19 yo 1986/2005 (45.9%, The Whisky Fair, bourbon hogshead #1485, 252 bottles) Colour: white wine. Nose: very clean and fresh attack, very maritime at very first nosing (fresh oysters). Some bold but very enjoyable notes of lemon and grapefruit juice are soon to arrive, with also lots of grassy notes and Riesling wine (which I like, of course). Whiffs of sawdust, hints of books. Very little cask influence and not much complexity, but a most enjoyable freshness. One to sip on oysters? Mouth: very nice attack, very similar to the nose. Simple but fresh and very clean. Lots of lemon juice, lemon seeds, smoked tea and perhaps not much else, but I like it a lot for its superb ‘cleanliness’. Not enough complexity to reach 90 points or more in my book but I feel it deserves a good 88 points.
