    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talistill 1996/2007 (46%, Taste Still, 180 bottles)  With a name like this, I’d bet it’s Talisker inside (nothing ventured, nothing gained, right?) When the Pot Still bar will have their own bottling, maybe they’ll call it Talipot ;-) Colour: gold. Nose: yet another profile! Cleaner, sharper, more mineral, smokier, less mashy but maybe also less demonstrative. Hints of mint and apple skin, flints… Also notes of very fresh oysters? Very nice notes of beeswax, orange-scented candles… Keeps developing or a long time, with more and more orangey notes. Superb I must say, but you have to give it time. Mouth: rounder, softer for a while but getting more assertive, peaty, candied, fruity (quinces, oranges). Loads of spices as well, an ever-developing peatiness, more and more pepper… And yet, it’s still perfectly balanced. Brilliant young whisky at a perfect drinking strength (not sipping, sipping is 50%, drinking is 46%). Finish: long, wide and compact at the same time, peaty, waxy, smoky and candied… 100% pleasure. Another one that may prove that, indeed, malts distilled from around 1992-1994 on got globally better (again). My tuppence. 90 points.
