Color
Gin clear
Nose

staubige Eiche, Honig, Jasmintee, Zimt, Lakritz, Minze, kristalline Zitrone, cremige butterig zarte reife Eiche die in Blütenduft nach Rosen und getrockeneten Blüten übergeht, ein Hauch Anis, vorallem wenn man sehr flach atmet zeigt sich ein sehr zarte sehr komplexe warme süße Holznote, frisch geschnitten mit Harzen und Gewürzen

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

Comments

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

Comments

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)

Deep copper
Nose

Karamell, Würzigkeit, Salz, helle Früchte, Vanille und alles stürmt gleichzeitg auf die Nase ein. Röstaromen und Eiche. Der Alkohol sticht etwas in der Nase. Mit Wasser wird er etwas fruchtiger.

Taste

Hui, der hat ordentlich Kraft, fast schon zu viel davon, man ist geneigt, Wasser dazu zu geben. Pfeffer, klar, ist auch da. Vanille, Salz und eine schöne Würze und Fruchtigkeit.

Finish

ewig langer Abgang mit Lakritze, Kaffee und Gummi

Comments

Toller Whisky! Ein ungestümes Kraftpaket mit schöner Komplexität und einem langen Eichenfinish. Man muss etwas vorsichtig mit ihm sein. Ich trinke zwar dauernd Fassstärken pur, aber hier ist Wasser nicht verkehrt.

Color
Pale gold
Nose

Beginnt mit deutlich Geranien und Unterholz-Noten, gefolgt von mineralischen und maritimen Tönen (Seetang, Muschelschalen). Dazwischen blitzt immer wieder auch Frucht auf: Orangenschale, Pfirsich, Grapefruit. Leder. Dicht, elegant. Leichtes alkoholisches Prickeln in der Nase.

Taste

Startet seidig, füllig und rund. Dann rollt schnell der typische Chili-Catch hoch, er wird intensiv und kraftvoller, feurig. Maskulin. Wieder deutlich maritim und mineralisch, Zitrus, Rupfensack, Pfirsich, Seetang, Muschelschalen, salzig, ein wenig Honig. Dazu etwas Rauch.

Finish

Geranien, Zitrus und deutlich Pfirsich, Chili-Catch, maritime Töne, feiner Rauch. Aromatisch und intensiv. Wärmt schön. Kommt in Wellen und trägt lange.

Comments

Wieder ein schöner alter Talisker. Mit den 25yo vor 2010 kann man wenig falsch machen.

Wasser öffnet ihn etwas und macht ihn noch etwas maritmer und runder, aber Vorsicht, nur ein paar Tropfen.

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

Connoisseur Bishlouk Note

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.
