Achany gave this whisky 92 points

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

assez similaire au 2006 en plus retenu. L'attaque poivrée se fait plus précocement dans le développement. Celui-ci se fait un poil plus court. (si on veut chipoter)

Entendons-nous bien, cela reste d'une qualité stellaire

Bishlouk gave this whisky 91 points
  • Nez: Très proche de celui du batch 2006. Sucré, malté. Épices douces, quasi avenantes.
  • Bouche: Vigoureuse, poivrée. Du sirop d'abricot. Douceur et rondeur.
  • Finale: Des épices poivrées dans la gorge, mais qui s'assagissent plus vite que chez le batch 2006.
  • Verdict: Assez proche du batch 2006 au nez, mais (un poil) moins séduisant et moins équilibré en bouche.
  • 91/100.

Very pleasant - great!

The nose offers very much things - for me the best here.
Very good 'drinkable' without water - a round & perfect Talisker!

Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

Talisker 25 yo (58.1%, OB, refill casks, bottled 2007, 6894 bottles) Star5.jpgColour: gold. Nose: on the one hand, this is more brutal and more peppery than the 1970, but on the other hand, it’s more honeyed and candied as well. Unexpected notes of strawberry jam, the general profile being seemingly rounder and fruitier than both the previous and the 2008 versions of the Talisker 25. Other than that we do have the traditional notes of pepper, seashells and apples, with a great beefiness (bouillon as well) and quite some almonds just like in the 1970. With water: yes it works very well! We’re getting closer to the 1970 now. More flowery notes, not so usual in Talisker (yellow flowers, nectar). Camphor and eucalyptus. Fantastic. Mouth (neat): I had thought that despite its very high profile, this one would be in trouble after the legendary 1970 but it’s not the case at all. Sure this is a little less ‘beautifully mingled’ and a little rougher but otherwise it’s a very rich, fruity, spicy and wonderfully oaky Talisker. It’s just a tad too powerful when neat, so let’s see what happens with water. With water: works well, the profile doesn’t change much (maybe a little more salt and more crystallised lemon) but it got more, say ‘drinkable’s. Finish: long, balanced, rich and very, very ‘Talisker’. Comments: a big, big dram but not lacking complexity, maybe thanks to the refill casks. SGP:546 – 92 points.
