  1. Helgo scored this whisky 89 points Connoisseur

    From the nose one of the best Talisker DEs. Unfortunately a bit weak in the finish.

    Ranking 1.Nase, 2.Mund, 3. Departure instead of 90 (nose and mouth) - 88 out of 100 points
    • Nose
      maritime fruity
      sherry and old harbor ropes with seaweed
      salty flowery moorland air
      The Erika is already flourishing
      You are not sure
      Peat and salt are too heavy in the air
      old sherry casks in the warm sun
      Leather shoes on warm asphalt
      Menthol in fruity tart sherry over chocolate toffee
    • Taste
      gentle, almost flowery start
      ethereal, spicy, yet toffee-soft on the tongue
      Your mouth is filled, sherry smoke and salt
      fruity tar, chocolate toffee, some menthol
      Pepper spicy blends fruit sweetly
      complex and flattering
    • Finish
      short - medium
      Chocolate, menthol, fruit, salt
      Barn notes & maritime notes to the end
      in the end weak notes
      slight bitterness and old barrel
      the departure flattens off
      Point deduction for it

  3. bull10298 scored this whisky 89 points Expert Senior

    Prunes, toffee and something very slightly fishy on the nose. Another big,
    dominant dram like the 1989, mouth-coating, with treacle, malt and a suggestion
    of full cream milk. The finish is long, quite fruity, and pleasing as it slowly
    dries. Bottled 2004.

      leather, tobacco, stewed fruit. (88)

      oily, salty, stewed fruits & some dissolved fruit drops, faint sherry. (87)

      drying, more saltyness, faint chocolate, a bit liquor-y/artificially thick/clotted. (83)

  6. CrilleVBG scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    I can really taste the sherry, sweet and fruity.
    • Nose
      It's a soft and pleasant smell coming from the glass. It's sweet and fruity. You can really feel the sweet sherry aroma, but there are also cocoa, chocolate and some rubber..
    • Taste
      It's quite smooth, but there is strong flavors, nice..
    • Finish
      The finish is medium long, smooth and fruity.
