Medium long, warm, unfortunately no more smoke

Color
Burnished
Nose

A classic Talisker maritime nose with plenty of peat, but more tangy and less briny than the 10 year old. A pleasant note of fresh fruit; plums, cherries, and a hint of banana.

Taste

Very intense arrival with bitter oranges, raisins and intense peppery spiciness. The bitterness fades in the development leaving room for notes of candied orange peel, pineapple and a little honey.

Finish

Long and warming with the trademark Talisker pepper and saltiness combining wonderfullly with the sweet and slightly bitter orange notes from the sherry casks. In the end the peat leaves a light grassy aftertaste.

Comments

The sherry maturation really suits the Talisker spirit wonderfully. Almost reminiscent of a good Glenfarclas, but the intense pepper and saltiness still makes it uniquely Talisker. A triumph.

Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Eine enorm schöne Kombination aus Rauch, Sherry und Süße. Der Rauch ist anfangs deutlich da, verschwindet dann in den Hintergrund. Später ist er nur noch zu erahnen, bis er irgendwann wieder deutlicher wird. Die Süße ist angenehm, nicht zu stark. Diverse Früchte sind da, typische Sherry-Aromen kommen gelegentlich durch.


Taste

Voll und ölig. Leicht rauchig, dabei süß und fruchtig. Dezente Asche. Ein Anklang Tabak. Süße Orangen, Karamell und Malz im Nachschmecken.


Finish

Lang, dezent rauchig. Süß.


Comments

Sehr gut! Der Whisky begeistert mich. Vermutlich der PLV-Sieger schlechthin. 87

Old gold
Nose

Ein feiner, maritimer und speckiger Rauch, der sehr harmonisch von milden Sherry-Aromen begleitet wird. Zu den phenolischen Noten gesellen sich süßes Gerstenmalz und ein leicht salziger Unterton, der mich an den Geruch von in der Sonne getrockneten Algen erinnert. Der Alkohol ist sehr gut eingebunden. Die Fruchtnote empfinde ich eher als „hell“, d.h. keine dunklen Trockenfrüchte. Es fällt mir allerdings schwer, einzelne Früchte zu benennen. Die Nase ist relativ komplex und sehr ausgewogen.

Taste

Rund und cremig auf der Zunge und zunächst viel Rauch und eine pfefferige Schärfe. Die Schärfe verschwindet aber recht schnell. Dadurch fast schon etwas milder als erwartet. Als hätte der gute Tropfen schon lange etwas mehr Luft in der Flasche gesehen. Sobald die Schärfe weicht, gewinnt der gewinnt zunehmend an Intensität. Holzkohle und Lagerfeuer sind Programm. Dazu eine angenehme Würzigkeit, Meersalz, süßes Malz und süße helle Früchte.

Finish

Das Finish ist mittellang bis lang. Angenehm rauchig (Lagerfeuer), würzig und eine angenehme, begleitende Süße (nicht vordergründig). Mit der Zeit setzt sich zunehmend der Eichengeschmack durch. Die Intensität nimmt durchschnittlich schnell ab; eine dezente Mischung aus Lagerfeuer, süßem Torf, süßem Brotteig und Eiche hält sich aber recht lange im Mund.

Comments

Ein sehr schöner Whisky mit einem interessanten & leckeren „Rauch-Sherry-Charakter“ und mit einem immer noch sehr guten Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis.

Nose

Hier duftete mir ein von einem Bund Streihölzern entzündetes, leicht rauchiges Lagerfeuer entgegen, gefolgt von dezenter Vanille und leichter Süße, für mich findet sich danach ein Hauch sehr reifer Birnen oder sogar Kletzen(Dörrbirnen) im Hintergrund, zwischendurch habe ich immer wieder mal schwachen Lösemittel Geruch in der Nase, welcher jedoch nicht unangenehm heraussticht.

Taste

Hier hatte ich einen pfeffrigen Antritt, dann kurz etwas süße Vanille die sich in Blockmalz wandelt welches nur ganz, ganz schwach süß ist , geschwefeltes Dörrobst, dann speckig rauchig.

Finish

Herbe Schokolade, würzig, zum Ende ein leicht zusammenziehendes Mundgefühl. Mittellang bis lang, was lange bleibt ist aber sehr dezent.

Comments

Notes aus einem Blind Tasting.

Der hat mir gut geschmeckt, abhängig vom Preis würde ich mir diese Abfüllung evtl. auch mal wieder besorgen.

Da ich jetzt weiß was ich verkostet habe und den Preis (8/2017 - ca. 55€) kenne bin ich der Meinung den kann man sich auf jeden Fall mal gönnen!
