Whisky Reviews for Talisker Special Vatting

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.58 points

  1. St. Pauli scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    From the time that Talisker made genuine blockbusters. This is no exception, big and maritime. A "like it or not" whisky. Well I like it.
    • Nose
      Relatively one-dimensional on smoke and a bit of peat. The smoke is quite dry and ashy: bbq ash, exhaust smoke, lamp oil. Further: dark rocks (mineral side), marzipan, lemon, seashells, and pepper.
    • Taste
      Maritime and salty, with a kick of pepper. Seaweed, shells, oysters, peat, lemon juice, and marzipan. Not complex, but very good. 
    • Finish
      Long, very salty, with licorice, seaweed, again oysters, and a truckload of pepper. Big and bold, that is.

  3. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker NAS 'Special Vatting' (53.9%, OB, Distillery only)  This one was for visitors only. Colour: straw. Nose: big, clean, sharp and austere. Lamp oil, wet stones, thyme, seashells and paraffin, sheep, and finally the expected black pepper. Not really multidimensional but exactly what one would expect from a young Talisker, I’d say. Mouth: zing! Clean, pure, straightforward Talisker, all on peat, salt, pepper and crystallised lemons. Very, very salty, actually. Finish: long and even saltier. Comments: a simple but totally flawless Talisker, for Talisker lovers. You may pass, should you dislike salt in your whisky. SGP:347 - 87 points.

  4. Erik Elixer scored this whisky 86 points Connoisseur

    tasted with Aby ad JJ

    sample available on www.whiskysample.nl
    • Nose
      first impression is young and frisky Bowmore, briny, oily and honey
    • Taste
      stable, honey and very briny - salt
    • Finish
      peat, vanilla and even fruity - peach and pear

  5. Malt Hans scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Peaty

    and spicy aroma, malt, raisins, cardamom, pepper, honey melon, roasted

    nuts and vanilla. Vanilla sweet and smoky taste, pepper, mint, malt,

    coconut, ripe grapefruit, thyme and apricot kernels. Long, spicy, herbal

    and smoky end.

  6. Willie JJ scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Solid uncomplicated Talisker. A worthy dram.
    • Nose
      Barley sugar, fish paste, salt and iodine
    • Taste
      Pulteney-esque blast of salt and kippers
    • Finish
      More salty intensity with fresh ground black pepper

  7. Timo scored this whisky 71 points Expert Junior

    A good malt. Several times I had the impression of having a Lagavulin in a glass. Very unusual for a Talisker.
    • Nose
      The nose is stinging. Iodine, medicated, woody, musty, smoky, peaty.
    • Taste
      The taste is not so complex. Peppery, sweet, more smoke, more peat.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium. Warm, pleasant, smoky, spicy, smoky, peaty.

  8. SilentStill scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    A good stuff that absolutely has its right to exist and gives me much pleasure. I would almost say: Buy recommendation, but unfortunately the implementation should be difficult
    • Nose
      For a Talisker quite unusual malty with light fruit notes (inter alia pear), alternately Gummibaeren and Fluessigkleber with pronounced Addiction factor. Again and again, the familiar, earthy aromas of a good skye-malts. Also surprising is the rather low use of smoke, but this leaves just more room for the unfolding of the otherwise quite harmonious aromas.
    • Taste
      In the mouth then more smoke. It confirms the fruit component, which comes across quite well with the powerful, but not sharp onset. Harmonized with a little salt and a little fresher than the nose gives the Talisker a lasting impression.
    • Finish
      As with (almost) every Talisker the hoped-for heat explosion in the throat. If there were doubts in the nose and partly on the palate as well, if this is really a Skye-Malt, I now have certainty :).
