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

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 1992/2006 (46%, Jean Boyer, One Shot)  We already tried this one, but it was it's cask strength sister. Colour: white wine. Nose: we’re on another planet despite the similar strength. Much closer to the grain, the mash, with surprising notes of poppy seeds and even sesame seeds as well as almond milk. The whole is rougher and wilder than its older siblings but also smokier, even if not immensely maritime. Grassier. Notes of apples. Peated apples? Mouth: excellent attack, extremely classic. Big, fat, oily, peaty, peppery, maritime and lemony – yet very drinkable. Finish: long, still very bold, assertive, compact… A perfect young Talisker, maybe a tad sharper and less than the recent official OB’s – yes that’s possible. Not really complex but great whisky. 88 points

  2. Roel scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant dram, a good swimmer with a decent portion of peat nicely integrated. Very different from the OB, but definitely worth a try. Mercy et encore Jean Boyer!
    • Nose
      Opens with fruity and feinty notes, mainly on lemon (nice ones, not the sour stuff!) and big maritime notes (sea, dolphins basin, fish, slight chlorine compounds). Also some sesame.
    • Taste
      Very waxy and creamy. Love this. Gets hotter on peppery notes and vanilla. Also some peat and seaweed shinning through. Classical lemon freshness.
    • Finish
      Long dry finish on waxy notes and toasted barrel.
