  1. Misery scored this whisky 80 points Member Senior

    Bright, straightforward NAS. Good, but somehow without enthusiasm.
    • Nose
      Sea salt, fresh seaweed, smoked meat, smoked fish, honey, hot spices.
    • Taste
      Salty smoked meat, citrus acidity, honey sweet, hot pepper.
    • Finish
      It rolls a wave of salt, smoke, honey and bitterness barrels.

  2. 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

      Salt, sea, seaweed, smokey and a little bit of alcohol. Smells gentle not overwhelming. Citrus.

      Sweet, honey, a little bit smokey. Spicy. Very much different than the nose. Nice and gentle but also a bit weak. Not intense.

      Sweetness in the throat. Also a bit smokey. Complex but nice. I would recommend it witch cheese or nuts. Delicious

    • Finish

      Short to medium, warming sea salt, dry

    It's a touch drying and easy come easy go on the finish and body, but the beauty of this whisky is that it has more Talisker spirit and power than the 10 year old. I would choose this over the 10 year old because the standard 10 has been domesticated beyond all recognition as a Talisker, while this and the 18 year old are still firing on all peaty cylinders.

  10. Stanzeflasche scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    It is a Talisker very influenced by bourbon casks, sweet vanilla, sugar cane, icing sugar. We smell iodine and heather, but it is in withdrawal, and very little peat. Then come red fruits, strawberry, prune and raisin. A little earth and cherry, would there also be aging in sherry casks? Everything is well balanced. An ounce of sea salt to frame everything. A few volutes of smoke.
    In the mouth, it is softer and vinous first, almost sweet, hazelnuts, leather, caramel, apple, but the pepper rises very quickly. The final is pretty strong, but it goes. Relatively long, it leaves a smoky taste, tar and humus.
