2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.22 points

  1. ASWhisky scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    the 18 y is a whisky first class
    the warm summer with meadows, cliffs and sea on the tongue
    just great
    • Nose
      the sea is in the background with salt and iodine
      Caramel pudding with warm cherry sauce close up and summer meadow in the midday sun
    • Taste
      soft salt and sea
      pleasant smoke
      flowing sweetness of clover flowers all perfectly connected
      on the palate nice pepper note softer than usual soft chocolate
    • Finish
      long and strong
      again the Talisker sharpness
      but rather glowing than fresh
      nice fruit to the end

  2. Kantenmechaniker scored this whisky 90 points Connoisseur

    A great classic and very filigree Talsiker.
    • Nose
      Beautiful intense fruit notes rise directly into the nose, the smoke mixes discreetly and brings a spicy sharpness with it, overripe peaches, mango and passion fruit, but also creamy with vanilla, always the Chillicatch stings in the nose, with some time come filigree Notes of red berries in addition, which one perceives, if one only carefully creeps, thereby also spice, which goes in a leathery direction, very complex
    • Taste
      starts spicy, peppery, then it is creamy, vanilla, and many fruits, as in the nose a beautiful combination of ripe yellow fruit, but also sweet-sour red berries, the smoke is discreetly in the background without missing but to miss his part Contributing to the overall picture has pepper in the mouth in a positive sense, not just literally
    • Finish
      increasingly soft, slight sharpness even on the edge of the tongue and tip, some salt, the smoke now has a little more weight, with it still fruit bowl, which makes it a bit drier
