Talisker 25 Year Cask Strength 57.2%abv - Bottled in 2005

Another very special old and rare Talisker 25 year old bottled at cask strength 57.2%, destined for the pantheon of superb expressions of Skye's finest. This was one of the earlier editions before the evil empire brought the abv down to their more standard 45.8%. With a deceptive power hidden in a palate of incredible elegance, this is a classic iron-fist-velvet-glove Talisker par excellence.

 

Tasting Notes:

Nose:  Very creamy.  Surprisingly so, actually.  Whiffs of smoke and subdued peat.  Some neat ‘toasted’ notes as well.  Maybe peach.  Soft cream pie.  Pear and pepper.  Lemon and salt.  Mature notes of old books and such.

Palate:  The arrival and early delivery are creamy as hell too.  Crème brûlée-ish almost.  Pepper and peat.  Fruit syrup.  Salt and licorice.  Some seriously amped peppered pear and apple notes.  Very big and alive.

Thoughts:  Great dialogue between the nose and palate on this one.  A master class in balance.  Exceptional ‘young’ and vibrant older Talisker.
