Talisker 18 Year Old Bottling Note

From the Isle of Skye comes this Talisker single malt, which has spent 18 years in casks which previously held bourbon and sherry. A sweet and smoky malt, a must have for any Talisker fan. If you weren’t already convinced, this fabulous dram picked up the title Best Whisky in the World at the 2007 World Whiskies Awards too.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: 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.

Palate: Thick, 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.

Finish: Long, with peppery oak.

Reviews for Talisker 18 Year Old
Prices have tripled!
Big fan of Talisker and when Diageo announced they were raising the prices, I went out and bought back-ups while it was still affordable. Friends were saying the new 10yo is NOTHING like the old one, and since it’s cheap here, decided to get one and do a side by side with the old 10. There’s absolutely no comparison, and the new whisky is very disappointing. I won’t risk wasting over $200 should the new 18 also be a flop.

Great dram, extortionate price.
One of my favourite distillery’s and the 18 year old is one I have bought several times in the past, unfortunately I can’t comprehend the price hike and sadly I won’t be buying again.
I could list several whisky’s that are just as great at half the price. Such a shame.

Best Talisker for sure
We Finished the last bottle during the new year party. By far the best Talisker I had. Very well balanced and complex, I love it. A shame the price is so high now... Not sure I will by again.

Beautiful whisky that I'll never drink again.
Used to be a yearly treat, but no more. Even if you can afford this, you're being mugged at 185 quid.

The king is dead. Long live the value hunters.
Knew it was coming, but it’s such a shock to see the new pricing in writing. As others comment, it just means that this is now no longer a viable option. Has/will it cost correspondingly more to manufacture? No. No other brands are doing this, and the very act of doing it harms both Talisker and Diageo. Maybe we’ll all forget about it and lump it, and maybe the brand-new customer base is big enough to make the lowering/destruction of the existing customer base inconsequential - but will they be loyal enough? I remember recent efforts of a premium consumer clothing brand ‘re-educating’ their customers on value (their own words). It did not go well for them and shortly afterwards started bringing out new value ranges to make up for lost custom.

All it really means is that people will look elsewhere. As good as it is, it’s not without compare. I suppose Diageo can just make more Lagavulin 16, basically, and that is where Talisker 18 customers are being diverted to. I would like to recommend Aerolite Lyndsey as the best value option in this area. It is not refined as either the Talisker or Lagavulin, but for a ten year old Islay that’s less than half the price of either, that is where the current value lies.

Silly price
Excellent whisky, I’ve had a few of these over the years and always delicious ….. but £185 is a joke. There’s plenty other great whisky under £100. This is no longer something I’ll buy.

Good whisky, poor price
great dram.

Terrible box and worse pricing. Not MoM's fault you understand but I hope they haven't paid for too many cases

A price hike too far
One of my favourites, but the price hike is ridiculous. There are excellent whiskies out there at a fraction of this price. I'll be spending my cash on them rather than this. Pity, it's a great dram, but not worth £100 more than the last bottles I bought.

Never again!
Used to be a staple on my home bar, but the £100+ increase in price this year has relegated it to the realms of whiskies I used to drink. It simply isn’t good enough to justify the new price when in August ‘21 it could be bought for £79. Shame on Diageo.

Talisker have lost the plot with their pricing of their 18 year old which is a good whisky, but a complete rip-off at £185 a bottle.
