  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

    • Nose
      89 89
      Favorite fresh green melons, white flowers, appropriate marine flavor, delicate peat smoke, smells very relaxed and pleasant
    • Taste
      86 86
      Honestly drinking it now, I feel a little watery, but it's refreshing, clean, sweet cantaloupe and oyster seawater, some green grapes, roasted wheat, earth and a little bit of chocolate
    • Finish
      88 88
      Honey, grapefruit, nuts, honeydew melon, medium length, not short, moderate dryness, the oily feeling in the entrance will have a good stay

  4. penumbra scored this whisky 81 points Expert Senior

    The basic model should not be so unbalanced.
    • Nose
      Reminiscent of the most recent version of Genting 100 proof, bourbon dominates, very little sherry, crisp, ocean, but more iced watermelon white. Peat is not irritating, fragrant pear, cucumber yogurt, ore.
    • Taste
      Like pure bourbon, cucumber-flavored Lays chips, sugar, peat, light juice, slightly salty, peppery, and more white space.
      Normal, normal oil, slightly sweet, no acid, no astringency, bitterness, no pungency, no alcohol.
    • Finish
      Long, cucumber, slight oak and peat, brine.

    Great classic Talisker. In comparison with wb186911 - more caramel forward, herby and earthy. Still great flowery nose
    • Nose
      89 89
      Sweet salty mineral smoke mixed with light butterscotch and caramel. After first sip strong aroma of flowers
    • Taste
      88 88
      Very creamy, caramel sweetness with salt, brine, herby and earthy peat
    • Finish
      88 88
      Long, sweet-salty caramel, maritime smoke

  10. TsiAI scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    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.

    Blind comparison with https://www.whiskybase.com/whiskies/whisky/35001/talisker-10-year-old balanced and gentle I liked this one better
    • Nose
      hardly smoke, sweet, coconut, vanilla, green, slightly chemical, pungency, mildew, pepper
    • Taste
      strong on the palate minimal smoke, malt increases, hardly chillicatch
    • Finish
      medium long, sweet, later bitter, some iodine?

    Body: Full, slightly syrupy.
    • Nose
      Pungent, smoke-accented, rounded.
    • Taste
      Smoky, malty sweet, with sourness and very big pepper developing.
    • Finish
      Very peppery, huge and long.

  21. wbarchive_104650 did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    The Stone Label ranks right between the Map Label (15128) and the New Label (68682). He looks a bit fresher than the Map Label, but not as fresh and peppery as the New Label. In the taste again very soft. For me, the creamiest of them all. Minimal smoke. In the finish, I have here again a slightly sour note, but in the smallest way is as pronounced as that of the Map Label. The finish is relatively long. Oh yes, it stays really long. Here, too, the second sip turns the acid note on the finish too strong.

  22. St. Pauli scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Very complex for a 10 year old, it confirms my score from a few years ago. I wish I had bought this by the case when I started to drink whisky at the end of the nineties. 
    • Nose
      Old nose, with a combination of sweet, honeyed barley and waxed paper. Furthermore, soft peat, orange, mint and eucalyptus, a hint of licorice root, vanilla and soft oak.
    • Taste
      Nicely balanced, soft attack, with quite some smoke, a bit more influence of the sea (salt, dried fish), with still plenty of orange, grass, licorice, wood and pepper.
    • Finish
      Great finish with quite a kick of black pepper, but with dried fruit alongside the orange now, soft traces of peat smoke, and a hint of vanilla.

  23. Dre73 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    Nice dram, full taste, nice balance of some fruity, spicy and smoky elements. Had this one in a horizontal Talisker 10 tasting, remarkable that the older ones, like this one, are way less peaty than the newer ones, way more balanced.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Spicy, smooth, vegetal, earthy. A bit maritime. Far away a whiff of peat.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Smooth, spicy, some sour fruity edge underneath, a bit drying. Some licorice and pepper, a far touch of peat.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Still smooth, licorice, a hint of peat, a bit drying, some earty and salty notes. A bit ashy. Pretty long finish.

    Very spicy and peppery 10Y. Great Chili catch, not too much on the sweet side. Seems a bit spicier then the newer bottlings- I like this one indeed. Lots of oak and pretty cocoa notes in the finish

    In comparison with the 2011 Talisker 10 I think with a little more rough edges.

  33. Feusi scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Dried fruits with a nice campfire smoke. Peppery, sweet, sharp and strong in the mouth. Is not everyone`s cup of tea. But it pleases me very well.
