Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1979 SMWS 14.3

- Gorgeous middle age Talisker. Elegant and powerful at the same time. Very classic and immediately recognizable as a bottling of this distillery due to its distinct pepper notes. There was the "Amber Antiques" -Tasting in The Vaults on 08.03.2019.
Not peat and pepper at first nosing, rather very
bold notes of spicy vanilla crème. The rest seems to be blocked by the high
alcohol level so let’s add water right away. With water: amazing how this one
got medicinal. Antiseptic, pine resin, eucalyptus, wet newspapers, raw wool,
stones... Still quite sharp.
(neat): forget about it. Extremely oily but
extremely hot as well. Okay, water please: wow, that worked! Extremely
‘Talisker’, all on crystallised lemons, peat, salt and pepper.
Mint, hemp, and slightly floral.
