The perfect stocking-filler, and something any true malt fan would love to find in their hipflask - or a little treat for yourself? Brimful of coastal power and elegance, with the hallmark chilli and white pepper notes tantalising the tastebuds.

Had my first sip this morning at Christmas breakfast and fell in love.

Probably the best single malt. Only, maybe, Royal Lochnagar is in the same class and comparable to it.

Excellent. Peaty like an Islay but a bit more subtle. Lots of complexity from start to finish. Would be very happy to find this in my christmas stocking.

Edit to my last comment:In my opinion this malt is unique because of that dryness along with smoky wood like taste. In some respect, even the best Islay whiskies can't compete with this malt (although I'm a Islay man).

I like that soft, warm and wood like mouth feel. There is also delicious amount of smoke, peat and some kind of "sea feeling" there. Few weeks ago I tasted Talisker 18 y (didn't buy a bottle), and in my opinion that was even more softer, but not so complex than 10 y.

A complex malt with strong hints of the sea and the wild western coast line. Close your eyes and you are there. Not for beginners. Had been drinking scotch ten years before I moved on to this. My favourite scotch and probably the best one.

Easy and sweet(ish) over the tongue with gentle hints of spice. Roll it around for best effect and then enjoy the lightly smokey finish. This is a whisky with a lot to keep your taste buds interested.

The sea on Skye the peat the woodsmoke the depth of flavour the log fire all contained within one wee dram. A man sized whiskey not for the faint hearted and my favourite

I'm not a big whiskey fan, but I absolutely love Talisker. It has such a broad/deep flavour to it. I'm in no way an expert taster of these things but the peaty flavour is very prevalent with the initial taste and catches me every time! Then the other lovely flavours seep through and quench the sharpness, and the warm peppery after taste makes me want to keep refilling the glass!!! Great stuff!

I got bought a bottle of this for my birthday a few years back. On first tasting I thought it tasted like surgical spirit and left it to one side for awhile. However when I returned to it I found it to be much less harsh than I first thought. Not certain if i would buy it again but would be very interested in trying it for a second time.

Great whisky. Romantic connotations of Talisker bay for me. Can be scary for anyone not used to whisky, and specially those not used to character rich whisky.

Not one to try if your new to malts. Will probably put you of for life lol. A good strong dram.

Talisker is a whiskey that is full of character and in no way bland. It's individual flavour mean it's not for everyone. For me personally it's one of the finest and once I open a bottle it's soon gone. Cheers !

bought this scotch one night for $71.95 canadian opened it up took a smell and a sip and just about puked I wasn't used to the Salty , Peaty flavours but I ended up sharing the bottle with a couple friends but that night after I was done drinking the scotch I felt like I was sea sick and thats NO JOKE.

Nice scotch, with a salty, peaty flavor, and a very dry finish. Might be a little too peaty for some, but there's a complexity to it that rewards those who give it time. Walnuts, hints of chocolate and pepper, and a northern sea permeate its all-around full-bodied flavor. Not my favorite scotch, but great all the same.
