  1. MaroFF scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    Another great Talisker. It is not an outstanding whisky, but it is definitely quite a good single malt, for not a lot of money. Lots of smoke, fruit, sweets and chocolate accents make you want to come back to her. I like this!

    No maritime notes, no brine, no iodine, no smoke, just ultra sweet pineapple fruitiness!

    Oh Talisker, where hav' ye gone?!

    Very good and classic island whisky taste. has notes of freshness but peat as well. Has nice and long finish.

  5. Helgo scored this whisky 82 points Connoisseur

    I like the nose very much. Nice smoke flavors and fruitiness. In the mouth a nice oily note with smoke, fruit and quince. Then salt, pepper and spices. Unfortunately, a very short dry finish.

    A decent dram and for the money you get an interesting taste experience.
    • Nose
      Coastal - like the smell of the sea rather than seaweed.  Quite an enticing smell.
    • Taste
      All the good things from the sea - like a mermaid's tears rather than some manky old fish. Warming on the palate.
    • Finish
      Long - the slightly higher strength gives it a decent punch.

    A nice whisky for people who still have to get acquainted with sea and peat. But for those who love it, it is just too light. Certainly not bad whisky, but he feels a bit like the little sister of the big brothers on Islay.
    • Nose
      The nose is slightly salty and slightly smoky with a hint of leather and fruit.
    • Taste
      The palette is flat until you let in some oxygen. Wait a little longer with swallowing, followed by a nice peppery surprise.
    • Finish
      Pepper and sweet leather.

    Q: pink gold N: yellow fruits - apricot ?, some alcohol, closed G: light body, very sweet, some smoke, barely fruit, some vanilla A: long, sweet, fruity + H2O: even sweeter: way too sweet! Best suited for generation snowflake! René Magritte would say: "Trahison! Ceci n'est pas un Talisker "
