Talisker 1957 Gordon & MacPhail - Original 'Cask' ABV 51.1% 75cl



A heavily sherried 1957 vintage Talisker from veteran independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail. This cask survived the devastating distillery fire of 22nd November 1960 which caused significant damage.


Nose: extraordinarily meaty and as smoky as the inside of a coal stove. Also parsley, herb sauce, chlorophyll, fried foie gras (not joking), meat sauce… Truly emphatic. Mouth: maybe more classic but big, powerful, very medicinal, resinous, tarry and smoky. Say, a 1968 Norton Commando ;-). Sake, liquorice and crystallised lemon. A lot of salt in the finish. Comments: not that we had dozens but 1957 was a great vintage at Talisker. SGP:266 – 94 points. (And thank you Heinz)
