Customer Rating
A distillery-bottled cask strength Talisker, 57° North is deceptively smooth for a whisky at this strength, but still a muscular presence on the palate, with the pepper and chilli Talisker hallmarks very much in evidence. Picked up the top prize in its category (Best Island No Age) at the World Whisky Awards 2012.

    This has to be the best Single Malt produced by Talisker.

    Best whisky I''ve ever tasted, and I''ve tasted quite a few. Hits you smack in the face with the first sip, but immediately goes on to soothe you with a special smoky, peaty and spicy treatment that will target all your tastebuds and linger in your mouth for what seems like an eternity, after which it politely takes its leave to nestle itself into your heart forever. Perfection.

    A powerful (57% ABV) and bold but, deceptively smooth and very enjoyable whiskey. The tasting notes says it starts out sweet and explodes on the palate with smoke and pepper. And yes it does explode with a long finish. A very good no age statement expression of Talisker, I''m going to need another bottle to take home!

    Finally, in Canada - for triple the quids...

  • 22 April 2013

    Big and powerful but classic Talisker. The smoke on this is superb. Clearly a step up from the very good 10yo version.

    Delicious with Diet Irn Bru. Don't knock it till you've tried it. Sensational.

  • 11 March 2013

    Possibly the most complex Talisker I've encountered. Classic nose- tar, seaweed, a creosoted fence on a hot July day, lemon juice squeezed over fresh oysters, an old plastic fish crate washed up on a Hebridean beach. On the palate- more smoke mingles with honey, vanilla and pepper before the big spicy explosion leads to a long finish. The delicious fumes drift back up your throat to your nose. Stupendous, world class whisky. You won't regret buying this one.

    I'm ready to go back and pick up a few more bottles.

    Just having a dram of this after having first had a(Talisker) 10yro, an 18yro, and an 07 release 25yro.This one can hold its head high in that lofty company. Highly recomended and will always have a place in my collection.A perfect finish to a little trip to the Isle of Skye! Enjoy!

    The only thing this whisky needs is a glass to put it in!

  • 15 January 2012

    I agree with some of the other reviewers - this is a great whisky. It bears the unmistakable distillery hallmarks and is very smooth for a 57% peated whisky (in a good way). Perhaps a bit sweeter and not as peppery as the 10 YO but equally good in a slightly different hue. Mood alone determines whether I prefer the 10 YO or 57 North. I prefer both to the 18 YO and Distiller's Edition but still rank those versions as some of my favourite whiskies.

  • 13 January 2012

    Have just reviewed this and thoroughly enjoyed. Different to the 10 year old, unmistakably Talisker and a power house at cask strength. I will definately return to this bottling again, but I have to move on to others to try!

  • 9 January 2012

    Just visited the distillery and bought a bottle of this home. For me this beats the 10yo and 18yo, which are also fantastic...

  • 10 December 2011

    Truly a phenomenal whisky! For something in this price range it is an absolute bargain, such a myriad of flavors and a great proof. Probably will go down as one of the all time greats.

  • 9 November 2011

    Just finished a bottle of the 57 N. If one isn't a purist mainly concerned with age, this is a great buy and a must for having guests over on occasion.

  • 26 September 2011

    Typically more of a bourbon guy, but starting to get more into SMS and this is an incredibly wonderful whisky. Can't put all the flavors into words, but just incredibly flavorful with a long satisfying finish.

  • 8 September 2011

    perhaps not meaning coca cola?

  • 26 July 2011

    Yeh, one of the best whiskies ever from one of the best distilleries ever. At 57% it has the raw power to go with the great Islay's...and then some.

  • 28 February 2011

    Even though it's 57? it's very smooth. Typical Talisker flavours are found here, but turned upside-down: less chilli-pepper and more smoke. I like it, but I still prefer the fieriness of the 10Y.

  • 21 November 2010

    Well, this is indeed one my favorites whiskies at the moment. But, I prefer it straight despite it being bottled at almost cask strength. I honestly prefer it without any water added. It is indeed smoother than the regular 10 yo Talisker, with the very characteristic flavors of Talisker and thus an unmistakable and unforgettable flavor. I find it difficult after having a dram, not having a second one... :-)
