Talisker 30 yo (51.9%, OB, 3000 bottles, 2006) Colour: pale gold. Nose: very, very maritime and rather buttery at first nosing. Not very smoky (yet?) but we have lots of notes of kelp, seashells, fisherman’s nest, fresh almonds and a slight toastiness. As close as you can get to a plate of oysters with slices of buttered toast and fresh lemon, I’d say. It’s very elegant, very fresh and very clean, with something ‘sylphlike’. It gets then a little smokier and stonier, with whiffs of bonfire, flints, Riesling… Almost no pepper this time but I really love this profile that makes me think of Dagueneau’s Pouilly-fumés wines. Mouth: more flesh now, the attack being closer to the 20yo’s. The pepper’s well here, as well as quite some ‘dry’ fruits (mostly citrus, and small wild apples). A certain grassiness and an enjoyable bitterness (un-sugared green tee). Gets peatier with time and, curiously, a little sweeter at the same time (I get hints of ripe bananas but maybe that comes from the wood). And very salty! The finish is rather long, beautifully balanced and clean, with a very ‘coastal’ signature, lots of marzipan, a little liquorice and even more salt. I think it’s the finish that I like best here. Excellent and very interesting as most (all?) old indie Taliskers one can find are sherried versions. 91 points.
