    Maritim, peppery, muted peat, fruits. Awesome Talisker.

    Blenders Glass.
    How cool is that!
    The alcohol is perfectly integrated. The aroma is mineral (salt and a mixture of spices), sweet fruits, vanilla and cinnamon, citrus fruits, with a slight but obvious smoke - like a red-hot iron barbecue with burnt coals, on which you have just finished frying meat.
    You can breathe in its eternity.
    Sweetish on the palate, marshmallow on fire, meat with salt and herbs. Very tasty.
    The finish is long, vanilla wood generously sprinkled with a mixture of peppers.
    The balance is excellent.

    After all, Talisker is a great kurna, which cannot be replaced by anything - just beloved!

    Had this one in a blind tasting, I was very surprised to discover this to be a Talisker. It had more peat influence than I would expect from a Talisker. Very nice experience and pleasant whisky for sure.

      Fruity, with a touch of rubber and peat. Earthy, roasted meat, licorice, tobacco.

      Sal ammoniac intially, licorice. Pretty smooth. Pepper. Slightly peated, with some sweet notes.

      Now things get more powerful, licorice, drying, pretty long. Some peat and sweetness.

    A great bottling, but the taste advantage over the Talisker 18 is not big enough for me in view of the price advantage.

      In terms of aroma, the Talisker is still surprisingly smoky despite its 25 years of age, in character like a blazing and slightly ashy campfire. Quite quickly I discover a great, ripe fruit note behind the smoke, which, like the Talisker 18, goes strongly towards the plum. The smoke is moving more and more into the background and there are clear maritime notes. Sea air, salt and a suddenly quite strong pepper are in my nose. Gradually, the smoke, the ripe fruit and the maritime character settle in again and form a very round, complex and set overall picture.

      The whisky then accelerates in taste. The start is strong and intense with strong pepper, wood and very light smoke. With a little patience, sweeter accents appear again, but there can be no more talk about the plums in the aroma. The aroma invites you to dream - but the taste wakes you up again.
    • Finish
      90 90
      In the finish, the strong and intense spiciness comes before. As with the taste, I don't notice much Talisker chili. Instead, I have the impression that the spices come from the long barrel storage. In the end, a very light and delicate breeze of smoke emerges. A subtle dryness is reflected in the mouth, which changes into somewhat fruity tones and then fades. Quite a long finish!
