Talisker 25 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)

Isle of Skye, SCOTLAND

Reduced from $499.00

$399.00

Bottle
  • ABV 45.8%

One of the most seductive, seamlessly integrated and softly textured peated expressions from any island distillery.

Since 2011, both Talisker's 30 and 25 year old expressions were bottled at 45.8% as opposed to natural strength. The new price point makes this all the more difficult to resist - elsewhere expect to pay $550+.

Tasting note: Bright gold. Brine and pepper lift gives way to peach and vanilla followed by hints of liquorice and smouldering cedar wood. Exposure emphasises the ripe orchard fruit aspect. Semi sweet and briny in the mouth with an oily peat and fruit fusion. Finish turns beeswaxy, mildly peppery, (Fisherman's Friend lozenge) and beautifully rounded off by sooty, creamy peat. Text book balance. Talisker at its most accessible? 45.8% Alc./Vol.

Other reviews... The nose lulls you into thinking that this will be a dull affair. My God! It is anything but! Magical and enchanting. 94 points Jim Murray's Whisky Bible 2008.

...I think this was the first 25yo bottled at Talisker's usual lower strength instead of the previous 'high strength' levels. The last earlier version that we've tried was the 2008 at 54.2%, brilliant stuff (WF 91). Colour: full gold. Nose: a completely different planet after the Dark Storm, this is smoother of course, but also more complex, with some lilac, tangerines, roses, almonds, this very 'tropical' smokiness that only old peaters can display, beauty cream, brine, oysters... It's a lovely nose, delicate and subtle. Mouth: once again, a slightly smoother version of an old Talisker but power is there. It's no straight brute as older versions could be (remember the 62% vol? Or was that the 20yo?) but it's not lacking oomph. Smoked overripe apples and lemon curd plus brine and kippers. There. Finish: long, maybe a notch woodier, with this feeling of strong green tea but also a perfect brine. Little pepper this time. Comments: I know some whisky lovers and Talisker aficionados were shocked by the drop in strength and in theory, I should be shocked too, but let's be honest, this remains a mightily powerful dram. 90 points - Serge Valentin, www.whiskyfun.com
