Whisky Reviews for Talisker Neist Point

46 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 83.96 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    Delicate smoke, fine enough for a Talisker. Is it vanilla behind? No pepper on the horizon but a nice balance found in the mouth between moderate peat and a fruity. It is soft. Final rather short and discreet. Easy to drink.

    Enthusiasm 3/5

  2. LDB scored this whisky 73 points Expert Senior

    Not what you want from a Talisker.
    Too young by far, you notice the lack of maturation on both nose and palate. The nose is not particularly memorable. A whiff of wet wood, smoke plus some fruity aromas.Very thin mouthfeel, and unbalanced as well. Okay, there is the pungent chili catch, but it dries out incredibly fast, sweetness fades too quickly.I was extremely underwhelmed by this malt after several tasting sessions, just my personal take on it, but I can not really understand the positive echo it has received.
    Besides, this Talisker is massively overpriced. I just wonder when the hype will decrease. Even remotely comparing this whisky to Talisker 18yo (let alone the 25yo) is absurd. You might just as well buy Laphroaig Select.

  3. rottendon scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    A good whisky, he looks quite young, but not too young. He is very soft and moderate and could thus be an interesting addition to the standard range, but he would have to move down the price significantly. The older Talisker offer much more, especially in the price / performance ratio. For me personally, he is a bit too pushy or sweet.
    • Nose
      Distinct smoke and sleepy feet are the first impressions. A strange nose! Reminiscent of the air in Pozzuoli, a town in Italy near Naples, it lies almost like a cork on a volcanic bubble, sulphurous vapors occur there directly through rock crevices. The height above sea level changes here several times a year. After a while, the nose normalizes, the maritime talisker notes emerge, and a bit fruity towards apples, apricots and limes. Later also caramel, which warmed up even more clearly. The focus is shifting steadily between sweet fruity and salty mineral. The alcohol is palpable and sometimes tickles quite clearly in the nose.
    • Taste
      The taste is a typical Talisker, quite strong sweetness with earthy and rocky notes, smoke, some salt and the developing peppery pungency, which is framed in this case, however, of some alcoholic sharpness, which, however, knows how to hide well.
    • Finish
      The finish is medium to long, the focus is on the earthy notes. The sweetie has a slightly watery touch here. In the end, a tender, sweet smokiness with a slightly soapy sensation on the tongue will last the longest.

  5. dram-drinker scored this whisky 83 points Moderator

    Well, I find this one pretty convenient and drinkable - however, in a blind tasting I would guess anything but Talisker - it's totally lacking the typical Talisker roughness - nothing for Talisker fans
    • Nose
      Wet tobacco, hints of leather, sweet and fruity notes, little seabreeze, only whiffs of smoke
    • Taste
      Oily, creamy, little punchy, subtle sweetness, fruity, peaches, yellow fruits
    • Finish
      Long and warm, rather sweet aftertaste

  6. GJR scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    Young talisker for a too high price. Pleasant.

  9. zaphod155 scored this whisky 85 points Expert Junior

    A rather complex whisky that still has its rough edges. I did not really find the announced maritime notes. I like it very much. (Addendum: At the second tasting, the maritime notes came in taste.)
    • Nose
      First roasted, slightly caramelized nuts. Then come green apples, peach and apricot. In the background are floral notes like roses and lavender. The caramel becomes stronger. There is also a subtle smoke.
    • Taste
      Caramel, some smoke, a subtle spiciness, spicy, slightly bitter notes. Mouth-filling and dry. The spicy notes develop stronger, the sweetness takes a back seat.
    • Finish
      Long. The spiciness and bitter notes last the longest and leave the impression of dark chocolate.

  10. Goethe scored this whisky 85 points Expert Senior

    The orange sweet wood smoked one made by the sea! Concerning price/performance ratio I would go for the 18 year old.Concerning price/performance ratio: 7/10
    • Nose
      Sweet salted coastal smoke. Black pepper, some lemon, honey, hints of barbecue, smoked apples, caramel.
    • Taste
      Sweet smoke, spices, salt, pepper, some nuts, smoked oranges.
    • Finish
      Long. Oranges, sweet smoke, vanilla and oak.
