  1. Gearmailteach scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    Still an excellent PGV. Always in the bar cabinet!
    • Nose
      86 86
      Sweet-fruity and at the same time pleasant mineral-smoky. Sea breeze, sherry, oily and waxy aromas. A touch of oak flavor.
    • Taste
      85 85
      Again sherry-fruity, salty. Some fruit, salmiak, vanilla, smoky.
    • Finish
      86 86
      Medium. Some smoke, lots of fruit, some coffee.

  3. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Nose: sweet, mineral, light peat smoke, a little sherry, fruity, some honey. Mouth: strong, salty, sooty peat smoke, oak. Departure: nutty, bitter-sweet with a nice helping of peat smoke. Less sherry than previous bottlings.

    Ralfy review 452: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nITnwolXMbg (86/100).

    "Relatively complex this. ... I'm noticing however that this is fresher, it's slightly rawer than my previous experience of Talisker, particularly Distillers Edition Talisker."

  6. Xstream scored this whisky 88 points Expert Junior

    Quite sweet and fruity for a Talisker. Not as smokey as most Taliskers, but has a great balance. Finish isn't very complex, but every sip is a flavor sensation with smoke and caramel. Delivers a good punch.

  7. Alois scored this whisky 84 points Expert Junior

    • Nose
      Smells ethereal. Floral. Little oak. Sherry. A bit spicy.
    • Taste
      Light smoke. Sherry sweetness. Spicy. Light cinnamon.
    • Finish
      Short finish. Sweet

  8. Joe Karacho scored this whisky 87 points Expert Junior

    A delicious, round, consistent standard for a good price. If he had cask strength now and was not colored ...
    • Nose
      Maritime smoke, dark fruit compote, caramelized pear, sweet and round, a harmonious uncomplicated nose ...
    • Taste
      Also in the mouth as the first smoke, salty dark dried fruit as well as for the first time the taliskertische chili wort
    • Finish
      Dry oak and the already recognizable Chilicatch in the mouth, medium long

  10. Triummf scored this whisky 85 points Member Junior

    • Nose
      Caramel and Sherry sweetness combined with an oceanside, brine smell. Pleasant, nothing major.
    • Taste
      Sweet and peppery, smoked BBQ. Quite thick.
    • Finish
      The smoke intensifies and keeps on building for like a minute. Combined with the still present sweetness, some honey,  a very satisfying finish
