    That is correct MtnDew. I believe 2011 is when Diageo lowered the proof and started releasing the 25 at "Talisker's traditional strength" of 45.8%. Note that the price was not also lowered.

    Luckily, the new 27 will be at natural cask strength, though it will set you back 475.

    Holy monkeys! I don't think even a 27 year old Talisker at cask strength is worth ~$750... I could get a whole lot of tasty bottles for that price. I felt/feel the same way about Macallan 25, just not worth it at all.

    Now I really am going to have to nurse my Talisker 25. When it's gone... it's gone.

    If anyone is looking for the 25 year CS, I know of a place where I can get 2 of them after Nov 6 for roughly $220 (tax included). From what I can tell, that's a good price. I can get it and ship it to you. I'll have access to a lot of scotches at good prices at that point as we have a city owned liquor store that runs a sale with 15% off and they already have some of the best prices in town. I can get the TUN 1401 Batch 6 and 9 for about $230 after tax as well. Always happy to help other whiskey lovers.
