  1. Archer scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    In the comparative experiment earlier / today I was most looking forward to the comparison of a current and an older Talisker 10. And it was also the Talisker 10 that had the biggest differences in my comparison. Bud smells the Lukas and offers a more varied spectrum of flavors. Terence does a good job, but not outstanding. It would be nice if Bud was a current issue of the Tali 10 ... My tip is different, because in the past everything was better. :-)

      B = this whisky

      B: Mild smoky, fine spiciness, salt, spray from the sea. A fresh fruit note, maybe freshly cut pears.
      T: Much more restrained than Bud. Very light smoke and some salt, but the fruit dominates. No pears as in Bud, more towards mild citrus (tangerines).
    • Taste
      B: Pleasantly strong and creamy. Directly a dry wood note on the tongue, lots of salt, pear pieces. Cool smoke of a campfire, mixes beautifully with fruit and salt. Fine-sour chocolate comes, freshly roasted coffee beans and not too sweet honey. Always accompanied by a pleasant salty note. Rosy paprika and Cheyenne pepper push the fruity-fresh notes into the background after a while. T: Even Terence lathers vigorously on the tongue, brings a good dose of salt, but less dry wood with it. Like in the nose, there are tangerine aromas, along with vanilla and cocoa.
    • Finish
      B: Medium in length, reasonably dry, spicy, peppery and slightly sweet.T: Medium long, also reasonably dry, but less spicy than Bud and less "deep" overall

    Smell: vanilla, fermented umami, cheese, lively temperate fruits, fruit yogurt, wild flowers, aromatic plants 90/100
    Taste: tropical fruit, wood, singe roast, alcohol, vanilla seeds, bitter bottom at the end, pepper, ginger. The fruit only flashed away at the beginning, and the second half was mostly salty, sea breeze, and smoky feeling. 86/100
    Ending rhyme: long, pepper, salty sea water, sea fish, shellfish, dried fruit 87/100
    Body: extremely oily, strong, full, solid, without astringency 89/100
    Overall: 88/100, the smell is so beautiful, the flavor is so hip. . . . After the entrance, the soft and mellow yogurt, cheese and umami flavor in the smell have all disappeared, only the slightly publicized ocean elements, while the dimensions are reduced, they are not delicate enough.

    Disclaimer: Had a sample that merely said "Talisker 10 - Old 45,8%", so I'm only guessing that this is the right WB-entry.
    • Nose
      88 88
      Interesting nose. Very earthy and mineral-like smell. The stone on the label definitely fits the nose. Reminds me of gardeing work on a hot summer day. A fruity, bright smell of oak mixed with pears.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Nice and sweet. Again a very mineral-like taste, but this time a bit more salty/rocky than the nose. The smoke is fine and balanced and just barely there. Fresh, fruity flavours as well.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Fresh, moist wood. Very pleasant.

    Significantly sweeter and tastier than the "new" 10s with the new design.
