Color
Amontillad
Nose

orange notes, maritime, light smoke, new leather, light nuts, citrus grass, aromatic oils/yeast

Taste

oily citrus, rich grains, orange notes, tart, marzipan, smoke, grass

Finish

medium, orange tart and marmalade, caramel, light grass, nuts, marmalade and nuts at the back followed by smoke and grass

Comments

good, but i was expecting more as it is a 30 year old and priced as such. the body is too watery (i was hoping for an oilier texture) and would’ve benefited from a tad more complexity

Color
Amontillad
Nose

Discrete smoke. Leather armchair, tobacco, citruses, salted caramel, walnut and cooking oil.

Taste

Oily. Sweet start: caramel and marzipan. Then it will turn to: salt, pepper, peat, smoke and ash.

Finish

Long. Caramel, ash and oak.

Comments

Nice game with the sweet, salty, bitter, spicy flavors.

Nose

wow incredibly balanced smoke nose! leather, tobacco, a bit of lemon and sea salt. Incredibly good balanced and complex. I have not been a Talisker fan so far but this one seems to change my opinion :-)

Taste

now I have salted almonds and a bit of caramel. Generally a bit more fruity than the nose so oranges and black berries. Still lovely

Finish

Also the finish is excellent but could be longer as you do not want to give this taste up!

Comments

For sure the best Talisker I have ever tried. I am not sure if I had such a great "smokey" whisky so far and this one is not from Islay! :-)

Great job Talisker!

n: the finest and best integrated smoke you can imagine. lots of leathery notes,
    lady´s handbag, roasted nuts, oranges, sunflower oil, linen,
    in the background we have salted caramel. getting truly coastal with the time.
    sandy beach in the sun, limestone. wonderfully balanced and very complex!
    I could nose this for hours. reminds me bit of a brora I could taste.
t:  perfect copy of the nose, the salted caramel is a tad stronger but mind you
    it is not sticky at all. very mineral on the palate. just wonderful
f: unfortunately only medium in length, salty, perhaps a little ginger
comments: perhaps the best tali I had so far. absolutely sublime as
                  charles mclean would say.
93/100

Nose

Zarter von Wind herangetragener Feuerrauch. Schwarzer Pfeffer, leicht säuerliche Orangen, Rohrzucker, nach längerem Stehen salzige Meeresbrise und ein Hauch von Mokka und Zimt

Taste

Karamell, sanft und ölig, Orangenabrieb, dunkle Schokolade, schwarzer Pfeffer, Tabak

Finish

Lang, Dezente Chilinote, zarter Rauch, Würzigkeit und Espresso

Comments

Im Abgang spürt man das Alter, Mund und Nase wirken erstaunlich frisch. Schöne ausgewogene Eichennoten. Sehr gelungen
