Tasting Notes

Tasting Notes

  • Tasting Notes by The Whisky Exchange

    • Nose

      Rich and fruity, with plums, orange peel and toffee. Gentle smokiness and seaside character.

    • Palate

      Sweet to start with toffee and fruit leading to darker, smokier notes.

    • Finish

      Long, with a hint of chilli spice.

  • Producer's Tasting Notes

    • Appearance

      Amber.

    • Nose

      Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.

    • Body

      Full. Pleasant, smooth.

    • Palate

      Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.

    • Finish

      Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.

  • Tasting notes by Annabel Meikle

    • Baked orange pudding sprinkled with cinnamon, pomanders and a trace of manila envelope. A silky mouth feel and develops into richer orange marmalade with burnt edges.

  • Tasting Notes by Dominic Roskrow

    • Toffee and rich peat smoke on the nose. The alcohol bite on the palate gives way to rich sweet peat smoke, some sea notes and plenty of peppery spice. Nicely rounded and complete. Some wood, too, suggesting its age. Like chewing honeycomb and smoky bacon at the same time. Long, spicy and peaty finish. Whisky doesn’t get much finer than this.

  • Tasting Notes by Dave Broom

    • Elegant with fascinating balance between smoke and subtle sweet fruit. Ever changing in the glass and on the palate. Gentle waves of flavour, superb balance and a classic peppery finish. Seamless.

Made by the Sea

The refined entry in its core range, Talisker 18 Year Old is an alternative take on the distillery’s famously elemental character. Salt, pepper and raging waves become a calm sea, with fruit and floral notes joining an elegant smokiness that shows off a very different side to Talisker’s whisky.

Skye’s Oldest Distillery

The only distillery on the island of Skye for many years, Talisker has defined the traditional character of island whisky. Sat a stone’s throw from the coast of Loch Harport, the distillery’s whisky is literally made by the sea. Rugged and smoky in youth, with an elegant complexity when well-aged, it is very much a distillery of two sides.

    Kurt,

    So many better whiskies to be had at this price.

    Ed,

    A wonderful whisky, but not remotely worth the price now being asked. Shameful behaviour by Diageo, I highly recommend looking elsewhere.

    Robin,

    Lovely whisky, but don't support this shameless price gouge from Diageo. As someone else stated below, £80 to £175 in a year is daylight robbery.

    RBW,

    Way to go Diageo.How to spoil an iconic product by profiteering.The recent bottlings haven't exactly been out standing.Well not enough to justify doubling the price.Afraid this will be consigned to history like Glenfarclas 25.Rating based on VFM

    Jay Tee,

    My favourite whisky of all time, brought back into supply now at double the price I paid last just a few years ago. Hope people will not rise to this outrageous increase, naked profiteering by Diageo
