‘Elixir’ would probably best describe this thick concoction. There is a great richness of ‘dark’ flavours, the vinegar notes are a bit too strong for a 90 rating. – Rating: 88/100
The tasting notes may read worse than the dram actually is, but the butyric and bitter aromas are not particularly pleasant. – Rating: 74/100
A closer look at an interesting phenomenon.
This whisky is aptly named. It’s all about peat here, mainly on the nose but also on the palate. The other aromas only act as ‘garnish’ but this works surprsingly well. – Rating: 86/100
Despite the rather strong peat the underlying flavours are rather subtle, the nose has a nice freshness. This feels a bit younger than it actually is. – Rating: 84/100
The sherry remains rather in the background, only to underline the famous smoky spiciness of the Talisker spirit. Quite different from the fantastic 1999 vintage. Rating: 87/100
A very nice daily dram with a faint hint of what some might call ‘coastal’, overall it is quite subtle but very enjoyable. – Rating: 82/100
Looking back at 2012, it was quite a turbulent year in the whisky business, particularly in the second half. Lots of things have happened, so it is worthwhile to take a break and reflect some of the major milestones.
A quintessential sherry monster, old but not too woody, very rich with an emphasis on fruity flavours. – Rating: 91/100
The wood has begun to take over here, but it still is a very fine dram. The finish is a bit on the short side, though. – Rating: 88/100
I am not too much of a statistics geek, but every once in a while it is quite interesting to have a closer look at what happens on the blog.
One of those flavour compositions that only the Japanese can create with boldness and delicacy in perfect balance. – Rating: 89/100
Despite being 12 years old, this dram feels a bit immature to me, the taste profile is not unpleasant but rather generic. – Rating: 72/100
