Whisky or Whiskey

What's in a name? Talisker 18 Year Old whisky is called whisky because it's produced in Scotland. Were it from America it would be spelled Talisker 18 Year Old whiskey, rather than whisky.

Talisker 18 Bottling Note

A must have for any Talisker fan. The 18 year old was hugely well received by just about everyone, it took the title Best Whisky in the World at the 2007 World Whiskies Awards too.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

The nose is quite clean and fresh. There is a mixed fruity sweetness with a spicy character. The peat and smoke rise with notes of perfume and thick oak. Hints of Calvados and a touch of acidity with ground ginger. The palate is thick and rich and full-bodied. Notes of spicy, peppery oak, espresso beans and wood smoke. A little allspice creeps in, there is a certain zesty character lurking somewhere. The spice builds and builds with utter intent. The finish is long and with peppery oak.

User Reviews of the Talisker 18 Year Old

Compared to other Islays????

This is not an Islay malt.

Just OK

I'm comparing this to the Lagavulin 16, which was disappointing, to my tastes compared to other Islays. And this was similar but even less interesting. Sorry.

One of the best malts

A very fine whiskey, to be sure. All the flavour of the 10yr old with a nice mellowness. It's a little overpriced compared to, say, the Lagavulin 16 and even the excellent Talisker 10 though.

One of the best

One of the best Whisky I've ever tasted, and I've tried a few.

Rabies in the mouth

Truly sensational. Like a boat that wasn't there a second ago.

One of few to compete with Islay Whisky

Talisker is fantastic, one of the few to compete with Islay offerings. I have the 10 and a 20cl bottle of this 18. Give the 18 time and space, a tiny drop of water and it will explode - beautiful!

Beautiful

This is one of the best whiskies around. More austere and less aggressive than the 10 year-old, all the typical Talisker flavours are there in a subtler whole. A truly great dram.

Wait a bit..

To the gents who complained of the medicinal... I have noticed a peculiarity of the T18 which upon receipt I was somewhat disappointed. I have noticed that it takes a good 15 - 20 minutes to open up. And it is easy to tell - when the strong iodine smell has dissipated, there should be left just a moderate sweet smell which is exactly the palate you should experience. OK - that is my two cents - and maybe will allow you to enjoy your bottle of T18 as much as I am enjoying mine - which is SUBSTANTIALLY!!

Fantastic

The best whisky I've tasted. Just perfectly balanced with sweet, salt and peat flavours and a lovely long finish. A few of us did a blind test on a few whiskies and this was everyone's favourite. Now to save up for a whole bottle. Can't wait.

Talisker

I'm a big fan of the 10 year old, but the 18 year old has a more mellow taste as is now my favourite malt.

8th October 2010

Not Impressed

I think the description of "medicinal" was brilliant. But to me, it just didn't develop much from there. Maybe I'm a harsh critic but I just expect a bit more from an 18 year old.

Having just returned from a trip to Skye and being unable to purhase a bottle of the 18 at the distillery..!!!..yes you read correctly, I managed to get a bottle of it in a delicattessen in the Byres Road in Glasgow.Being a massive fan of Islay Malts and all of the islands malts I really do like this 18 year old.It seems slightly more subtle than the excellent 10, and for me seems to have a slightly more complex nose and finish.I can understand why Talisker 18 has won awards..its beatiful.

Talisker 18 Year Old

I have to agree MBW - it's slightly medicinal on the nose - get past that to really knock your socks off. The Talisker 18 Y/O IMHO is one of the best drams you can buy for less than $100

Sitting here in the far and rather cold bit of northern canada, was with great pleasure a bottle of said T arived. Must have been away too long, as first impresion was of TCP, sorry nanny, but upto temp and away with all that god created..... a walk though the woods on an crisp novenber day were my thoughts. This is really a seriously good way to enjoy an evening. Far better than most... hate to bring the value for money thing up but my humble opinion ...... rather 1 bottle of this than several bottles of for eg:- glen.... So final score.... Tal 18yo 8, Glen (etc) 3... try 1 and enjoy Regads MBW
