A massive success as the island representative in Diageo's 'Classic Malts' series, Talisker 10yo's profile keeps increasing as more fans discover its intense coastal spicy, peaty character. A truly elemental malt.

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom for Whisky Advocate

    Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that give the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker's smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    Appearance: Brilliant gold.
     
    Nose: Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.

    Body: Full.

    Palate: A rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of pepper.

    Finish: Huge, long, warming peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.

    Worst whisky ever!!

    I have only ever bought bourbon, however, after trying Talisker 10 at a bar recently i couldn't resist buying a bottle to have at home. Absolutely fantastic, especially if you like a smokey peat!

    Probably, cost/performance, my favorite whisky. It has the body and punch of the Laphroiag or Lagavulin in a more refined delivery with slightly less oak but more complex lingering notes. Just an absolutely brilliant achivement at this price point. Recommended for ANYONE.

    I really enjoy the sweet yet smokey taste I only ever have just the one glass but savour every sip

    I enjoy Storm more than the 10. There. I said it. Everything is here - that peppery kick, that coastal freshness, a very delicate amount of harmonious smoke...yet, I'm still missing something here that stops it from reaching it's potential. Very refined and layered, but I wouldn't buy another bottle. Storm isn't the most complex, but I enjoy the flavors more.

    Smokey petey flavour, salty at the end but unbelievably tasty

    I just love this peaty, smokey and fruity Skye production with the peppery finish. It's one of my standbys.

    A favourite of old! Renewed acquaintance after some time enjoying Islay malts. Back to my No. 1 choice.

    I bought this whisky solely based on reviews and I must say that they were spot on. This is among the kings of single malts and you simply must try, nay, buy this whisky. You will not be disappointed. Superlative. Full marks.

    New to Whiskey, but a head and Shoulders above everything else I have tasted, the salt and brine notes are subtly subjugated by a sweetness that balances the flavour, very nice

    This may be my favorite peated whisky, along with Lagavulin 16 and Lagavulin 8. This is precisely what seaside peated drams should taste like. Peat, smoke, brine, and the ocean. All balanced by a floral sweetness. Outstanding
