Whisky Reviews for Talisker 25-year-old
25 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 90.60 points
- It took a long time for the malt to develop its full power. You should take a lot of time. Requires full attention.
- BLIND TASTING
Tip: a fine whisky, did not have the urge to give him water, because so very complex
- 50 to 54 percent
- 20 to 25 years
- refill Sherry cask
slightly fruity, then wood, slates, candle wax, marzipan and walnuts, then fruity again, juice concentrate, I imagine some smoke, later more sweetness occurs
takes in the entire oral cavity, becomes stronger and stronger and the smoke becomes more pronounced, a sweet tingling on the tongue
no explosion but continuously evolving, yellow fruits, tender, salty smoke, medium to long
Powerful, at first somewhat alcoholic. Cocoa powder, citrus fruits (rather, lemon), light smoke and peat, ash, gouache, red apple, sea freshness. Medical theme (pills). Wet paper and cardboard. Wet stones. Almond. Towards the middle of the dram begins a delicate carpentry theme. 23
Full-bodied, moderately dry, powerful. Oak tannins, black pepper, apple, oriental spices, fruit drops, light smoke and peat, citrus sourness, minerality. 23
Long, warming, fading out, smoky, phenolic, tannic. 23
Pretty typical Talisker, very harmonious and tasty. Balance 23.
- A beautiful, maritime malt. The smoke is present all the time without being obtrusive. Has a complex nose and is amazingly tame on the palate despite the high percentage. I like it well, but I would have liked a little more fruitiness.
Citrus fruit, light smoke, salt, iodine, later vanilla and sour. Chocolate and dust.
Soft and yet mouth-filling. Salty, vanilla, bright fruits, tamed smoke. Alcohol is surprisingly well integrated.
Peppery alcohol, again salt and vanilla, a bit spicy oak and a light smoke.
- Perfect alcohol strength. Full power ahead without the slightest burning. Keep your nose clean and enjoy!
Herbs in the nose. Creamy, occasional honey, a breeze of sea air. In the background fermented fruits. The smoke is practically present, has already broken down into more complex herbs. Pinecone.
Amazingly soft and yet powerful. Typically maritime. Here are a little less herbs for a little more smoking, but still discreet.
The finish is medium long. Here again more herbs Requires more, that makes him kind of tasty without him being sweet. There remains a little smoke. At the end of the day, there is a bit of oak, overflowing with seawater.
- When i bought this it was 99 euros, unbelievable.
- blind tasting 93+ points! vll even more try the second time. Tip: Bowmore, 20 + years, ex-sherry barrel, 53%
A crowning achievement! So should be a smoky whisky. No penetrating ashtray, the smoke beautifully woven into complex fruit and spice notes. light smoke, maritime saltiness, citrus notes, marzipan pastry, allspice
strong, complex, wonderfully integrated alcohol and smoke, fantastic sweetness, the aroma flavors are reflected in the taste and remain forever in the mouth.
wavy recurring sweetness and smoke, subtle bright fruit notes
- [September, 2013] I had this dram during a Charlie Smith tasting at Bonn.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
- 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 90. I took no detailed notes.
- a more acetic nose this time with notes of solvent and glue. The mouth is shorter, a bit bitter. The attack is frank and violent, and the finish just as brutal. The shape of this whisky is more picked up. I am less convinced with this one. (in comparison with previous batches)
