  1. Okto-Bull did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    an incredibly voluptuous smoke rises in the nose. Mineral Mief paired with fouled detergent. The difference to the Skye and the Dark Storm is revealed only by the price. Pears, oranges and bananas. Zip your lips.
    Rattling things.
    12 juicy thighs ride down the palate in drops. It is dark. The tealights are out. The wind.
    It smells like burnt rubber. Pah orange. Purple Rain. How about mint ?! Yes ... and sequoia. Face. Black mint, vanilla is not mint. Ice cream.
    Delicious. He is beautiful

  2. Hupsende Hippie scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A beautiful character with unique flavors, a tough whisky for rough autumn and winter evenings.
    • Nose
      Peat, pepper, apple in lemon juice, little leather
    • Taste
      Salt and pepper on a (sweet) apple, light peat
    • Finish
      Peat and apple

    Is he the storm Talisker par excellence? ... certainly not.
    Even at first impression he can not convince me. Life is too short for these drams.

      I have my problem with boys. That's exactly what comes with this Talisker, OK, ... a grape note of the darker kind comes over. From the announced smoke is less felt than expected. Vanilla and some furniture polish can actually hold their own.

      The smoke covers the spiciness and leaves it pale with a tendency to weakness, although supposedly 45.8%.? No definite palate joy wants to come up, a bit weak, (watery?) ... unfortunately can not convince me. Sorry.

      Short, musty finish. Spicy, rather dry and
      clearly for me a less good memory of a Talisker.

  6. ffmdino did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    such malt, slightly astringent
    he is more pleasing than the 10y for me, nice malty
    no chillicatch ??
    • Nose
      Somehow putrid (reminds me of Ardbeg), and then comes first little, then it is fresh and green, pepper, some vanilla is stronger
      then a little smoke later
    • Taste
      light and silky on the palate
      good malt is more, sweet, alcohol is good, slightly brown banana, sharpness, some smoke is stronger, oak comes at the end
    • Finish
      medium long
      warm, bitter, dark chocolate, slightly sherry, bitterness and oak later

  7. Alex Fridays scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Dried fruits, sea salt, peat smoke notes on nose.

    Spices, apples, oak and peat smoke notes on taste.

    The middle finish with spices, oak, peat smoke, dried fruits.

    The Talisker whisky is one of the best choice for pairing with oysters! I like this combination very much!

  8. Lorion scored this whisky 77 points Expert Senior

    Uncomplicated and delicious, if you like it salty-sweet.
    • Nose
      A sweet-salty, slightly smoky pleasure with citrus fruits.
    • Taste
      Smokey than in the nose, some pepper comes to it. But here too the overall impression is sweet and salty. Delicious.
    • Finish
      Medium long with extinct campfire.
