Whisky Reviews for Talisker 18-year-old

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.28 points

  1. Bowmore Axel scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Significantly softer, oily and more mature than the 10 series.
    Nice vanilla, sweet and salty - mineral, less
    smoky - peaty. Also slightly peppery. Some honey
    Orange, banana and chocolate. The 3 x 200ml set,
    At that time still at the age of 18 - he, I have myself regularly
    bought again. Very good for getting to know Talisker.

  4. Bosi scored this whisky 91 points Specialist

    This bottling is a lot bigger than the younger ones from the Talisker Standard Range. Beautifully round and balanced.
    • Nose
      Although this whisky is very round, a maritime flavor stands out. Behind a soft smoke are notes of grape chocolate, pudding and nougat. Some oak is also recognizable.
    • Taste
      Similar notes as in the taste prevail. Some salt is added to rum chocolate, orange, a hint of smoke and the classic chili catch of Talisker.
    • Finish
      The finish is surprisingly short with pepper and fresh fruit.
