Whisky Reviews for Talisker 25-year-old

8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 89.60 points

  1. PatSch23_12 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    amazing what can become of the 10 year old beast
    • Nose
      surprisingly mild and set, discreet maritime notes of Talisker are in the glass, little smoke, old salt water, damp wood, iodine, musty seaweed, behind fruity sweetness with zestiger bitterness and acidity (orange marmalade)
    • Taste
      For a Talisker gentle, Ascherauch mixes in Mirabelle Compote, the typical chili is only pepper, oak and licorice
    • Finish
      black tea, dry in the finish

  2. lapinbilly did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    A Talisker whose maturity has softened the iodized temperament to develop the woody and creamy side, not bad at all!
    • Nose
      A smoky, peppery, woody and slightly fruity nose.
    • Taste
      In the mouth spices, pepper but the whole is very balanced with fruits
    • Finish
      The finish is long spicy and peaty, very sweet.

    [November, 2014]  I had this dram during a FoSM club tasting.In my old rating system (ten scales that translate into WB points: 50
    - 66 - 75 - 80 - 82,5 - 85 - 87,5 - 90 - 92,5 - 95) I scored it 87,5.  I took no detailed notes.

  6. malt_fan_06 scored this whisky 86 points Expert Senior

    My God is the weak one for a 25 yo Talisker.

    In direct comparison to the 2004 25 yo or to the 20 yo from 1982 this is a difference of much more than one league in between. The 2014 is lacking in depth, volume, zero chili catch and very few maritime notes. The departure is short and irrelevant.
    At the price of a joke ...

  7. Shane_IL scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    This doesn't feel much like a Talisker anymore but it is a very nice aged whisky.

      Dry straw. Rich wood. Old spice cologne. Light salt. Slate. Salt. Nutty. Bit of pepper. 
    • Taste
      Rubber. Charcoal. Dry wood. Toffee. Salt. Smoked salmon. 
    • Finish
