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 (2)

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
Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.
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.
Huge, long, warming peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.

Enjoy every drop of this liquid gold with a wee bit of spring water. Delicious!
Talisker knows what it stands for. It is a smokey whiskey but not as heavy as some of the Islay malts. Complementing the smoke is a delightful sweetness of pears (orchard fruits) and a slight citrus element. Then a peppery finish. The 45.8% ABV delivers a punch. A great whiskey. Marking it 4 out of 5 stars because it does have colouring which to be honest, Talisker need to sort out……can’t see why they need to do this.
This was one I was looking forward to trying for a long time, whilst I wasn’t disappointed, I was a little underwhelmed by it. It’s harsher than expected and not as complex, the smoke is noticeable but could do with being cranked up a notch in my opinion. that said it’s still a very good dram but perhaps not on the God like pedestal many put this on. Or maybe I just got a bad bottle? Would probably buy again on deal to test that theory out. Purchased for £30 so no major complaints.
Best smoky whisky I tried yet.
