An easy-drinking Talisker, taking the distillery's classically rugged character and softening it out, while maintaining the smoky and sweet notes the distillery is known for. More approachable, but still definitely Talisker.Tasting Notes (3)
- Black Pepper
Our wine expert, head buyer and experienced sommelier Dawn Davies MW, recommends Talisker Skye to bring out the best in these dishes.

Tasting Notes by Stuart P
Rich notes of stewed apple and pear with some treacle toffee and hint of marzipan. There’s some subdued smoke puffing away in the background along with cured meat and a touch of liquorice. Much more approachable than the 10yo.
Ah, this is Talisker, all right … there’s that trademark punch of black and pepper and smoke, accompanied by stone fruits and a rich, mouthfilling texture.
On the short side, with the smoke outlasting the fruit.
Definitely the little brother of the 10yo, this is a baby Talisker that wants to be taken seriously, even if it doesn’t quite have the brawn and muscle of its elder sibling.
Tasting Notes by Rocky
Green apple and conference pear at the front, with brine at the rear and a hint of nutmeg.
Waxy texture with sweet smoke, green apple and a hint of tar.
The fruit disappears leaving a dry smoky finish.
Bright 18 carat gold with polished copper lights.
Starts gently with the glorious citrus-sweetness of fresh oranges. A touch of water tames the spice and smoke, but the aroma remains maritime.
Medium yet softly textured.
Soft and sweet at first with very light smoke.
Long and warming, yet also fresh, with a big, peppery finale and a late trace of sweet smoke.

God awful... I love Talisker but this tastes like drinking diesel and, for me at least, is actually undrinkable.
Great all round drink
If you had a reasonable whisky and then sieved it through a foot of peat, this is possibly what you may end up with. For me it is too much of a TCP aftertaste . I may just be a peasant , but this just isn't my bag. Wish I'd bought the Glenfiddich.
Lightly peated, very easy and undemanding but satisfying drinking. Great for a midweek glug when you don't want something more serious or to be faffing about with water and pipettes. Just pour and go.
Smooth and easy drinking. Peppery. Brine. A little burn but not too bad. Not getting any smoke or peat or tar. Maybe a little bit medicinal on the finish but not unbearable actually don’t mind it. Sort of whisky that would be on an optic in a city centre pub. 2.5 Stars.
