Whisky Reviews for Talisker 25-year-old

26 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 91.24 points

  1. dRambo scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    ein tolles Teil - aber bis jetzt bin ich mir noch nicht sicher - ob er nicht ohne Rauch noch viel besser wäre - die besonderen Aromen aus den alten Fässern werden etwas vom Rauch verdeckt - wenn er auch seine eigene Note beigibt 
    • Nose
      Honey, jasmine tea, cinnamon, licorice, mint, crystalline lemon, creamy buttery delicate ripe oak that turns into flower scent of roses and dried flowers, a hint of anise, especially when you are breathing very shallow, a very delicate, very complex warm wood note, freshly cut with resins and spices
    • Taste
      edle Süße mit feinen Blütenaromen fließt sanft über die Zunge, säuerlich Frucht blitzt auf dann kommt zarter alter Rauch, etwas Asche, Zimt, Nelke, Muskat, Lakritz und Minze - sanft wärmend - ein winziger Tropfen genügt schon um den ganzen Mund zu füllen - beim Kauen zeigen sich noch mehr Blüten und Eichentöne - wow  
    • Finish
      süß mit Blüten, intensive Holznoten - wie gespaltenes Holz in der Sonne - keine Bitterkeit, Gewürze - Harmonie

  2. Armin Fuchs scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Very pleasant - great!

    The nose offers very much things - for me the best here.

    Very good 'drinkable' without water - a round & perfect Talisker!

    FineSpirits_butler1 and me like it very much! (January 2016)
    • Nose
      Apples and pears, apricots, chocolate, peat, citrus: much candied peal and lemon juice, scouring milk, overheated motor, cold grill with some ashes, cellar, some sweet marmalade, grilled mackerel with lemon juice, almond milk with some bacon on leather - with peat, mocha praline, cherry jam, cherry praline, 'Schwarzwälder Schinken' (Black Forest ham), some maltiness, chocolate splashed with a bit of seawater - goes to pure saltwater, pine needles, oak, pepper, smoking coals, rough Kalbsleberwurst (with the white peal), meaty aromas fight with sweet ones, caramel sweetness, dried corn flowers with a lavender branch between, church bench, distant cold incense, bath additive, clear glue (TL) or adhesive (AF).
    • Taste
      Salt and fruit sweetness, cherries and cherry jam, leather, citrus, pure lemon, peat, coniferous forest, coals, oranges, wood, dark chokolate, ashes, maltiness, some coffee ground, pepper, caramel notes, white wine (TL), bark, cocoa powder, smoke, charred wood, autumn leaves.
    • Finish
      Great start!

      Citrus, dark chocolate, pleasant nuttiness, leather, aftertaste of sausage, some feeling of saltiness, dry citrus peal, bath additive, pepper, some salt on the lips ...

  3. FritzeKrautman scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Great whisky! An impetuous powerhouse with beautiful complexity and a long oak finish. You have to be careful with him. Although I am constantly drinking cask strength, but here is not wrong water.
    • Nose
      Caramel, spiciness, salt, bright fruits, vanilla and everything storms at the same time on the nose. Roasted aromas and oak. The alcohol stings something in the nose. It becomes a bit more fruity with water.
    • Taste
      Hui, he has a lot of strength, almost too much of it, he is inclined to add water. Pepper, sure, is there too. Vanilla, salt and a nice spiciness and fruitiness.
    • Finish
      eternally long finish with liquorice, coffee and gum

  4. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 91 points Expert Senior

    Another beautiful old Talisker. With the 25yo before 2010 you can do little wrong.
    Water opens it a little and makes it a little more maritime and rounder, but beware, just a few drops.
    • Nose
      Starts with distinct geraniums and undergrowth notes, followed by mineral and maritime tones (seaweed, shell shells). In between, there is always a flash of fruit: orange peel, peach, grapefruit. Leather. Dense, elegant. Slight alcoholic tingling in the nose.
    • Taste
      Starts silky, full and round. Then the typical chilli catch rolls up fast, it becomes intense and powerful, fiery. Masculine. Again clearly maritime and mineral, citrus, pickaxe, peach, seaweed, mussel shells, salty, a little honey. Add some smoke.
    • Finish
      Geranium, citrus and clearly peach, chili-catch, maritime tones, fine smoke. Aromatic and intense. Warms up nicely. Comes in waves and wears a long time.

  5. Achany scored this whisky 92 points Connoisseur

    old & dignified and young & feisty at the same time. pepper, spices, a dark fruit sweetness, salty, some bacon, leather, hints of tobacco, a sea breeze, the oak. the more time you give it the more the complexity can evolve. this is really one of the finest Single Malts I ever had

  6. Bishlouk scored this whisky 91 points Connoisseur

    Nose: Very close to that of batch 2006. Sweet, malty. Sweet spices, almost comely. Palate: Vigorous, peppery. Apricot syrup. Sweetness and roundness. Finale: Peppery spices in the throat, but which settle more quickly than in the 2006 batch. Verdict: Pretty close to the batch 2006 on the nose, but (a hair) less attractive and less balanced in the mouth. 91/100 . (Note made in the context of a face to face of all Talisker 25y in barrel.)

    If you try this one in a tasting, make sure you put him at the end. This one is a real killer, a giant of a malt. If you compare this style with the newer versions of the Talisker 25 you will get tears in you eyes. This one seems to be out of another universe. I bought this one nerly 10 years ago for 100€!
    • Nose
      A full and rich nose with a lot of aromas. Sweet cooked fruits like apples and cherries, vanilla, peat, iodine, earth, menthol, leather and even some farmy notes. I could sniff this one forever.
    • Taste
      Oily and chewy. Very powerfull with sweet fruity notes at first, a lot of peat and iodine, vanilla even some sour notes appear.
    • Finish
      The finish is very long and powerfull with all the aromas you had in the nose and the taste. A fight between sweet, dry and sour notes. Fruits, peat, herbs, salt etc.
