Diageo 2012 Release - Talisker 35yo

Postby TaliskerBairn » Wed Nov 14, 2012 10:30 am

Hi everyone&

I would really appreciate your opinion before I part with my hard earned cash as to whether or not you think that the Talisker 35yo Diageo Release is worth the £525 price tag?
 I am dying to add it to my collection, but at same time not willing to be taken for a fool as Diageo have had a habit of being a bit pricey in the past.

Thanks in advance for all your honest and forthright comments,

Kris

I tasted tonight together with the new 25, 30 YO and at the Distillery Only.

I enjoyed it clearly better than the 25 and 30 YO, with superb smoky nice, rather on the mellow side, while retaining a nice intensity.
If you like the previous 20-30 YO expression of Talisker, then you should not be disappointed by this 35 YO.
The tasting notes should be available by the beginning of next week at the latest on my website (www.whisky-news.com)

Have had one on (prepaid) pre-order for over a month! Will tell you when I get to taste it... btw, has anyone else actually had delivery of this one yet?

Yes, the first bottles arrived in Switzerland about 1 month ago. But delivery other countries have been delayed. Some French retailers received it this week, as well as some German retailers.
Apparently, in UK and The Netherlands as well.

PS: Excellent Talisker but (very) different from the 10 YO :-)

Thanks toy everyone who has replied, and think now that I've been swayed. Think that because it's the first every 35yo release that's why it's carrying such a weighty price tag, but I would hope that over time it will retain it's value.

I hope that you don't think that I'm mental buying this to collect it, some would say that it's sacrilegious to keep it locked up!!

Thought I'd post a wee update after you guys were so kind to offer to look after any potential purchase of Talisker 35.

I ended up in a moment of weakness ordering two bottles as I'd kick myself if I'd only ordered the one......and the presentation cases are awesome!

Can't stop looking at them and if they taste anywhere near how they look then it'll not before I'm tempted to crack into one of them, haha!

Merry Xmas to you all,

Kris
