I have tasted different expressions from Talisker starting from 6 years old to 35. They were all above satisfactory level. I had no negative experience with any of them. 10 year old is a great, highly acknowledge bottle. Whereas 35 year old is a great malt with a total different character. 25 year old surprises with its fruity qualities.
But the 18 year old is just like a passage way between the smoky character of 10 year old and fruity profile of the elder ones. Talisker 18 excels with its beautiful balance, round texture and rich character.
Not to mention that it took the title Best Whisky in the World at the 2007 World Whiskies Awards, this bottle has to exist in every whisky lover’s cabinet.
Just like a talented ballerina, whisky blows your mind as it swirls in the glass.
A beautiful art work.
