Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1992 JB

  1. Bishlouk scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Well, here I am, disappointed. Already it is not easy to find an independent Talisker, he is far from remembering what I like at Talisker. So yes, the independents are supposed to offer us alternatives to the profiles proposed by the distilleries, but here I do not find at all what puts me in all my states at the Talisker 18 years and 25 years. Of course, this is just my comparative approach with officials. Out of there this whisky is not bad for the rest. Just very simple and monolithic, and not Talisker.
    • Nose
      Vanilla and iodine at the first nose. Then yellow lemon. A first contact quite "simple" and monolithic, far from official Talisker I know.
    • Taste
      Vanilla lemon, and a big blow of pepper mill. Here too it is very (too) simple compared to my expectations in Talisker.
    • Finish
      Long. The pepper is put forward, followed by a bitterness of lemon peel.

  2. Pépé scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Super whisky, around 90 certainly.
    However, we feel slightly too much wood on the nose and in the mouth. Ditto for alcohol. If not these two small flaws, it's really excellent.
    • Nose
      Fruity malty, with watts. Light cream, it feels a little alcohol. Herbaceous, slight salt peat, development of the apple. It's beautiful, it's Talisker! A slight nut.
    • Taste
      Oily, sweet, lots of nuts, salty, chocolate and even more nuts.
      Fishy apple (!!!), malty. Of a very beautiful length, a slow development and very pleasant, powerful. Pepper in the final.

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 1992/2006 (58,8%, Jean Boyer One Shot Collection) Colour: white wine. Nose: a very fresh and powerful start on freshly cut apples and yoghurt, farmyard, kelp and soaked grain. Quite sharp and, as they say, uncompromising. Also notes of green tea, walnut skin and wet stone plus hints of cider and crushed sorrel leaves. With water: gets grassier, more mineral, flinty… The peat starts to shine through (smells like floor maltings at the end of the process) as well as sea elements (shells, seaweed). Still quite austere in style – which I like.Mouth (neat): great attack, direct, punchy, peaty and peppery. Notes of small sour apples, grape skin, liquorice and green chilli. For big boys – not that I’m not one but let’s try it with water now: much sweeter, liquoricy, getting very salty, with also notes of walnuts, oatcake, bread crumb… Finish: long, straightforward, expectedly peppery and ‘mashy’, peaty with maybe juts hints of rubber. Superb young Talisker, perfect hipflask malt for winter times I think. 89 points.
