  1. alex..w..fan did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Note by Serge Valentin from whiskyfun.com:

    Talisker 1979/1994 (46%, Moon Import)  It’s funny, this one is meant to be from the ‘islay of skye’ according to the label. Well, I know nothing about Gaellic so… Colour: white wine. Nose: rather discreet, maybe a tad soapy in fact. Gets peatier and more peppery with time but also grassy, austere, dry, not very enjoyable I must say. I usually like this kind of profile but this one lacks the sharpness and straightforwardness that should go along. And did I mention the notes of cod oil? Mouth: better for a while, with more body, more richness but also something cardboardy that leads to a weaker middle. Quite waxy and a little salty. A little iodine. Gains power again after a thirty seconds, with the lemon and pepper making a late arrival. Finish: probably the best part. Compact, more ‘Taliskerian’, maritime, with quite some nutmeg and lemon marmalade. Good whisky in fact, but not an absolute winner (although this one may please the label drinkers). 84 points.
