Whisky Reviews for Talisker 2009 DL

2 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 81.25 points

  1. lincolnimp scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The nose has strong crisp peat, more than most Talisker actually, this is more like a young Caol Ila so I will try a young Caol Ila to compare next.

    That is really nice, a little sweet, creamy with brine, hints of lemon and cream.

    Finish is good medium length remaining fresh.

    This surprised me in a good way and much better than the sherried OB Nas offerings.

    I like this, it may be young but the quality is definitely there, worth buying.

  2. Rosebank88 scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    Despite his youthful age, a wonderful malt that convinces with its purist, clean structure.
    • Nose
      Extremely youthful and clearly structured. First, wonderfully peaty, black pepper, gentle sea breeze, lemon juice, rainy hay and a resinous sweetness of Nadelstreu.
    • Taste
      Stressed peppery aromas and sweet peat smoke wrestle for the upper hand. Is then always sweeter but also roasted for coffee. Later also herbaceous aromas, charred citrus zests and firm metallic aromas.
    • Finish
      Clear, full coffee-like roasted aromas, delicate smoke and pepper. Medium.
