Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1984 Talimburg WF

3 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 87.50 points

  1. ColdAesthetics scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A successful experiment with the rum barrels and Talisker, as always with rum here a little edgy drumrum, certainly by the 52%, but the station wagon is already fitting and exciting with coast. Caribbean.
    • Nose
      Tropics clearly noticeable, honey melon, papaya, light raisins, light citrus fruits and fine ashes, light honey and fennel, ginger and white pepper, vanilla
    • Taste
      Spicy and very full with its%, ginger, white pepper, fennel, cinnamon, camphor, light honey, papaya, melon, raisins and licorice, the tali-chillicatch is also there, hint of salt, the fire burns fine, but not too alcoholic
    • Finish
      Dry, still strong with ashes and chili, the exotic fruits are now far back and dried, herbal honey, long

  2. toklian did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Maybe more double maturing than finishing
    here, as this one spent more than
    two years in a rum cask (maybe not
    first fill, having said that). Colour:
    straw. Nose: unusual! Much more buttery
    and ‘creamy’ than expected,
    and much more flinty/mineral as well.
    Keeps changing, passing by lime peeling,
    wet wool, wet chalk, fermenting hay,
    Jägermeister, oregano, chives
    (very huge notes of cooked chives,
    actually)… A different fruitiness
    only comes through after a looong
    time, with an oranges/molasses combo
    that’s rather unusual once again.
    Finally gin fizz. This one needs a
    lot of time on the nose, but then
    it gets very pleasant. Mouth: a little
    disconcerting at the attack, as if
    it was hesitating between some sort
    of ‘lemon confectionary’
    and a full load of peppery notes.
    There’s also more rum than on
    the nose (vegetal/sugarcane). It’s
    finally the traditional Talisker character
    that wins the game, with as much pepper
    as in the DE, maybe even more. Also
    traditional mustard (‘moutarde
    à l’ancienne’),
    not the sweetish swill that some make
    ‘somewhere’ and a growing
    grassiness. Finish: long and unexpectedly
    similar to the DE (chocolate, pepper,
    oranges). Comments: it’s as
    if Talisker will always defeat the
    invaders, no matter who they are (read
    which kind of wine/spirit). Anyway,
    his is very good once again. SGP:357
    - 87 points.

  3. SilentStill scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    compared to the 20yo with 43.8%, although point winner, but the very highest level of consecration also this Talimburg does not pick up ... but that is already complaining at a high level ... measured in points, he can be seen ..
    • Nose
      initially lots of vanilla, the otherwise so typical earthy aromas are pretty dominated, light citrus and a gentle peat smoke rise in the nose, the rum is not just on me, on the other hand, unmistakably maritime and coastal-like
    • Taste
      powerful 52%, fire spreads through the pharynx, significantly less vanilla than in the nose, but now a good mix of floral and spicy notes, with the chili-catch moderated here, given the age
    • Finish
      great finish, the fire does not want to give way.
