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.

    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

    Great whisky. in the beginning it's smoky, then it becomes like cold, damp, rocky beach smell. Very thick, oily. after taste it returns very sweet and cold aroma, reminds me cold black tea with a lot of sugar. Very long and sweet finish. fantastic whisky!

    It's OK not good or great. It has a nice balance of sweet, spicey and peat but the finish is lacking. Disappointing !

    Taste of Ocean, salty, smoky, turfy full-bodied with citrus sweetness and black pepper finish and long lasting aftertaste. Love it.
