    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 19 yo 1979/1999 (60.3%, Cadenhead authentic collection) Colour: straw. Nose: much rounder, ‘sweeter’, starting on vanilla and newly cut grass, spent lies… Goes on with wax, paraffin, fresh walnuts and notes of milk chocolate. Little peat this time. With water: still quite round but there are also nice citrusy notes now, even passion fruit and maybe green mangos and star fruits. Good quality marzipan – not the heavily sugared one they (try to) sell you at supermarkets and linseed oil. Much, much nicer with water. Mouth (neat): rounder, nuttier attack but there’s soon something disturbingly bitter coming through. Rubber bands? Extremely grassy. Herbs liqueur (Jägermeister), highly concentrated liquorice… A bit hard I must say. With water: gets more complex again, fruitier, with something like bitter oranges, herbal tea and metal (old bottle effect, already?) Excellent now, really. Finish: long, waxy, nutty and, of course, peaty with again a little rubber just like with the Jean Boyer. Little pepper this time, that is. A true swimmer, in any case. 87 points (with water, but just 82 neat).
