Whisky Reviews for Talisker 1979 CA

1 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.83 points

  1. Cobo scored this whisky 90 points Expert Senior

    A wonderful, albeit unusual Talisker. With water you lure out in the finish very beautiful peat notes
    • Nose
      Extremely strong nose for smoke and citrus, for damp stones and seagrass, not quite the typical Talisker profile, rather reminiscent of a young Caol Ilas, somehow but also to an ashtray, with water it is herbaceous and peaty
    • Taste
      wow, what a start, strong after grapefruit and pepper, chili without end but also salt, from the background come the Talisker peat flavors, razor-sharp, here without water definitely beautiful and rounder
    • Finish
      long, very long, iodine and lemon zest, earthy smoky, very full, in the finish he has with water but very directly peat in the profile
