Talisker 30 yo (57.3%, OB, 2958 bottles, 2010) I loved the previous editions of Talisker 30. 2006 (WF91), 2007 (WF92), 2008 (WF93)… I can’t remember if there was a 2009 but maybe this 2010 version will match the stunning 2008? Or will it be even more to my liking? Colour: straw. Nose: oh, this one instantly reminds me of the style of the old official 12 from the 80s. It’s no big dram, it’s rather very elegant and slightly subdued, all on various oils including olive, then apple peeling, fresh walnuts, lemon zests, shellfish (say clams), beech smoke… What’s quite stunning is also how it becomes very peppery after that, although it’s no big blasting pepper. There’s also quite some peppermint and lemon balm, iodine, seaweed… And then whiffs of garden bonfire (under a wee rain). With water: more mint, more medicinal notes, antiseptic… Smoke. Mouth: perfect, just perfect. More presence than in the nose, it’s fatter, more potent, more lemony and candied, and saltier as well. The clams are back, tons of lemon drops, some pepper again (black)… gets then very mineral, extremely zesty. With water: more of the same, with a faint dryness from the oak. Finish: medium long, between crystallised lemon, peat smoke and pepper. Touches of salt again in the aftertaste. Comments: right, it’s maybe a little less complex than the 2008 but it’s still fab old Talisker. SGP:355 - 92 points.
