Talisker 10 VS Talisker 1992 DE

Postby Elagabalus » Sun Mar 23, 2008 2:29 am

I could not detect enough difference in the Talisker 10 & the 1992 DE to warrant paying the extra 30 dollars for the 1992.

What are your thoughts on the 1992 Talisker DE?

I like the extra element the "92 DE has and currently I can get the DE on clearance for $39US vs $44US for the 10/ Both good bargain drams and I'm stocking them up as fast as I can because the regular price for the 10 is $54US and the DE $78US.

No website, actually two different local stores. Not sure why the 10 is so much less than everyone else, but the store that has the DE seems to get bulk clearance stuff from the distributor at a huge discount. It's the same place I got the Cragganmore DE for $39, Glenmorangie 15yo for $39, Glenmorangie 10yo for $24 with crystal tumblers and the Burgundy and Madeira for $34. I've just about cleaned them out for future stock. :oops:

Not really. I live in a dry county and the closest store I call "local" that has even a decent selection is 60 miles away. :( The drive is through scenic mountains so it's not all bad. The ones closer are limited to Glenlivet, Glenfiddich and a few blends. Best selections are in Little Rock, 120 miles or Dallas, 240 miles. Since the state eliminated the over-the-limit law, I just load up when I can road trip.

We pay $52 for the Talisker 10, and $69 for the Distillers Edition, up here in WA.

I really enjoy both, and they are as different as apples and oranges. Tal 10 is one of my everyday drams, and the Distillers Edition, is a little sweeter, sherry, yet with all the Talisker characteristics (smoky,salty, little fire). The D.E. really hits the spot when I'm in the mood for it.

I think the Dist. Ed. is well worth the the $17 difference we pay for it here.

Talisker 10 is $50-ish here, and the DE is $70 -- and I've only seen it in East Tennessee, and I'm in Middle; distribution varies -- but I prefer the 10yo, anyway, so it's a no-brainer here.

I really like what the Sherry has to offer in the DE. They are both great drams in their own right though. There is room in my bar for both bottles. :D

I really enjoy the DE - the sherry wood finish seems to add a nice dimension to an already excellent whisky.

But whereas the Talisker 10 is a "regular dram" that I would drink regularly, I tend to drink the DE less often due to the price difference.
