i tried a dram of this at my work last week, it was lovely. not as much pepper as you get on younger expressions. quite woody, reminded me of being on the beach. slightly smokey but not the main attribute. i would recommend it!

Well then, you obviously need to be more careful about what you look at whilst on the beach! :D

(Aaagghh, I'm a hypocrite....sorry folks, I broke my own rule and posted a stupid, smart-arsed distraction to the original question. My apologies.....however, it was too hard to resist that one :wink: )

Personally, I haven't tried this one myself, but I know several who have and responses were all positive. I had the opportunity to buy it via mail order, but the cost was too much at the time.

Cheers,

talisker 20y bourbon?

Postby Eat P » Tue Nov 08, 2005 12:28 pm

Well this is almost off topic, but anyway, i really liked
my Talisker 20 y ´81 first fill sherry cask 62%... a fine dram :D
...it´s a bit stronger than the´82 20y american oak refill sherrycask at
58,8%,
it is a refill, isn´t it ? correct me if i´m wrong, cause i can´t remember it right now. i must try the bourbon matured when it comes across my path 8) is it a new release,or just a mixup at the endless sea of
releases, wood finishes and strenghts?

those 25y releases from Skye, are they perhaps bourbon matured
(finnished)? :D

I assume you mean "bourbon matured" rather than "finished". A minor point, not important here, but the wrong terminology could cause confusion in another context.

(I didn't even wake up Mr Picky for that one.)

Ok, can some one please educate me on how many different Talisker 20yo OB there are out there?

first fill sherry cask?
american oak refill sherry cask?
bourbon matured?

All I know is that I was at this bar a month ago on my 29th birthday and my buddy bought me a dram of Talisker 20yo. I didn't see the bottle up close so I don't know anything more then that. Any guess as to which version it might be?
