Product Description

Released in early 2013, Talisker Storm has all the warm, smoky, peppery characteristics we all love in the standard Talisker 10yo - but they've been turned up a notch, with more smoke, more spices, and a bigger-than-ever flavour explosion.

Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Tim F

    • Nose

      Rich and unexpectedly honeyed initially. Then some pleasing singed oaky notes and bandagey aromas. Now bonfire smoke comes through. There even seems to be some milk chocolate and appley fruit lurking in the rear. Everything in place; all very promising.

    • Palate

      Medium-full, the usual Diageo polished mouthfeel, with initial honey and then a very decent dose of hot smoke. The oak is there too, with vanilla and some (actually quite polite) peppery spices. The young whisky component is well-masked and the whole is rather more restrained in terms of mouthfeel than I expected, but the flavour intensity is, in my opinion, unarguably greater than the standard Talisker 10, which to be honest I have found surprisingly tame of late. Gets sweeter towards the death as the pepper lingers, counterpointed with unexpected sweet fruit and even a note of strawberry liquorice which somehow works very well.

    • Finish

      Woody and spicy without becoming bitter. Good length. Sweetness returns at the death.

    • Comment

      As a NAS malt, perhaps this isn't one for the purists - but as a good-quality drinking whisky in its price range, it probably deserves to be.

  • Tasting Notes by Billy A

    • Nose

      Salty (as you'd hope), with lime and orange peels, touches of mud and pine, damp blankets, woody spice and some caramel sweetness hiding underneath. Behind all of it is a layer of woody smoke, maybe with a few leaves thrown onto the fire for good measure.

    • Palate

      Sweet and syrupy up front, quickly followed by ferns and bitter woody bark in a bit of a balancing act. Riding along with that is prickly white pepper, rock pool brine, a touch of sweet fruit and a nice waxiness. Again behind everything, standing a little separate but waving at all of the other flavours is woody smoke - beach bonfires and pungent peat.

    • Finish

      Warm and peppery with some sweet dark wood.

    • Comment

      Does what it says on the tin - regular Talisker (salty, smoky and a little bit sweet) turned up a bit (saltier, smokier and a little bit sweeter in places). Unlike the hypothetical NAS whiskies that many people seem to fear (and which generally haven't appeared) this doesn't taste like it's hiding younger spirit behind a flashy label - it's a nice whisky, even if it won't set your world on fire.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Nose

      At first restrained yet spicy, with a hint of struck matches; fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm to reveal a honeyed sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit. Eventually a little well integrated mellow smoke drifts across the scene as a wild sea turns up briny, fresh clean notes, and an oily explosion of pepper.

    • Body

      Medium.

    • Palate

      At first sweetly mellow and rich in the mouth then quickly very spicy and increasingly stormy as the Talisker heat comes through. It’s as if the pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins hands with a deep nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a good balance between sweetness, smoke and salt, which is all the more evident when a little water is added.

    • Finish

      Clean and of medium length, warming, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which late peaty burnt embers can be found.

    Lou R.,

    This is excellent. Has all the peaty flavors but with restraint and balance. Recent buy for $46, compared to $65 in Cleveland. For under $50, it’s a no brainer and a terrific value.

    Grant Hawes,

    A brilliant oaken gold in the glass. The nose is pronounced honey, with a clear hardwood smoke note following, with peppery spice close behind. There is a floral/thyme nuance integrated with perhaps a hint of ginger. On the palate, I get soft caramel floating across my tongue, with smooth dark chocolate, herbs, pepper and honey in quick succession. The nuance is the most exciting part! Overall the pepper and spice lingers, but in a lovely balance of honey, caramel and hardwood smoke. Well done to whomever crafted this beauty!

    Anonymous,

    When you want a peated scotch but not the punch of Ardbeg.

    CHAD,

    There is a fruity, malty start then you get the smoke that I just absolutely LOVE. It is very balanced and smooth.

    Anonymous,

    It's ok. Maybe it's just not for me, but as somebody that loves peat smoked Islay Scotch this one is a bit underwhelming. The peat and brine in this whiskey is delicious, but underneath that is something a bit boring a little one dimensional. It's bottled at a nice ABV and I can find this locally for $40, so overall it's really not a bad purchase, but you can also get Laphroaig 10 for $10 more in my area which I think is a much better. Another $10 and you can get Lagavulin 8 which I think is much more complex and delicious than this.
