  5. Goethe scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very nice Talisker. As usual for old Talisker: Tropical fruits and smoke. Love it.Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10
    • Nose
      Gentle smoke, marzipan, leather, apricots, lemon, roses, some tropical fruits.
    • Taste
      Tropical fruits, salt, overripe apples, dusty old cupboard, some oak spiciness and citrus fruits.
    • Finish
      Medium to long. Salt, pepper and oak.

  6. Cobo scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    A very nice malt, in itself an absolutely fine part, but unfortunately, the price is also something against it.
    • Nose
      elegant peaty, wood ash, of course, the typical citrus fruits, nitro thinner, a beautiful sweetness hovers in the background
    • Taste
      wonderfully spicy, fruity sweet, tamed peat, very little pepper, the sweetness reminds a little of sponge cake, nice creamy, already a little lighter and mass suitable than the CS versions, less iodine and more in the direction of the 18s
    • Finish
      medium long, very nice balanced peat notes, becoming subtly drier

  9. Eilean a' Cheo scored this whisky 93 points Expert Senior

    excellent, shows its age,seems even older, fuck the lower strength no problem at all, a wonderfull dram
    • Nose
      multiple layers of soft peat, talisker's coastality with mellowed iodine, peated buttery tropical fruits, roses, tangerine peels over the fire, coal smoke
    • Taste
      sweet peaty attack, quite oily body, tropical fruit compote smoked over the fire seasoned with natural salt and aged black pepper, perfectly aged coastality
    • Finish
      very long, elegant and savoury, with sweet peat oils massaging your taste buds

  10. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Quite delicious on its own.
    However, if you compare it to the 'old' 25 yo valley (eg 2004er) it quickly becomes clear: a class difference.

    Here, the intensity and volume of the earlier vintages are lacking, and the chilli catch is only a few.
