Color
Yellow gold
Nose

Un nez fumé, poivré, boisé et un peu fruité.

Taste

En bouche les épices, le poivre mais le tout est très équilibré avec des fruits

Finish

La finale est longue épicée et tourbée, très douce.

Comments

Un Talisker dont la maturité a adoucit le tempérament iodé pour développer le côté boisé et crémeux, pas mal du tout!

[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.

There is no accounting for taste...

Mein Gott ist der schwach für einen 25 yo Talisker.

Im direkten Vergleich zum 2004er 25 yo oder auch zum 20 yo aus 1982 ist zu diesem hier ein Unterschied von weit mehr als einer Spielklasse dazwischen. Dem 2014er fehlt es an Tiefe, Volumen, er hat null Chili-Catch und nur sehr wenig maritime Noten. Der Abgang ist kurz und belanglos.
Um den Preis ein Witz ...
