Review: Talisker 30 Years Old (2021)

Products You May Like

Talisker quietly dropped a 30 12 months outdated launch, turned out from refill bourbon casks and bottled in late 2021 at cask power — a whopping 48.5% abv. Solely 3216 bottles have been produced, with 498 obtainable within the U.S., so if this sounds engaging, it’s best to in all probability hop on it.

30 years hasn’t dampened the nostril on this Isle of Skye monster, which maintains a classically briny disposition, with plenty of sea spray and seaweed within the combine. Energetic and sunny, the saline character finds nuance in a delicate white pepper notice and touches of almond nougat, with lingering grassiness following. The palate is outstanding, mild on the smoke with notes of recent lemon, clear linens, and a chocolate notice. The saline is brisk and well-integrated, like a sprinkle of sea salt atop of well-crafted chocolate sweet. No faults are discovered on the end, which is clear and spritzed once more with lemon oil and extra salty sea spray — although, alas, it fades from the palate a lot too rapidly.

My small pattern was gone earlier than I knew what hit me. I’ll take one other, boss.

97 proof.
