Susie,
Did not care for the taste
 
Dave
Dave,
Lovely. Lightly peated with salty and sweet notes that shine through
 
Benjamin
Benjamin,
Not for me, taste like iodine.
 
Caleb
Caleb,
First scotch I ever had and I fell in love with it right away
 
Renee
Renee,
Nice smoke with more sweet than the Skye. Also peppery like Skye with the aftertaste of salt.
 
Andrew
Andrew,
Some discredit this bottle as too loud and unbalanced, but I think it's strengths make up for that unruly volcanic nature. No spirit I've ever tried has as much body in the mouth; it is like it expanding into your whole mouth. The flavor is of course that intense peaty marine flavor with a bit of black pepper. Unforgettable.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
A distinctive malt, with brine competing for your attention as much as smoke. Thoroughly enjoyable.

Magic in a bottle.

Nose: Peat Smoke Phenols, Sea Salt, Iodine, Seaweed, Malt Barley Taste: Smoke, Sea Salt, White Pepper, Chilli Pepper, Slight Fruity Cask Influences of mostly Mediterranean Dried Fruits Finish: Medium to Long An extraordinary complexity for its age. Young age gives strength and peaty flavours. Tough and robust. Balanced. Almost a masterpiece. However its sharp edged flavours are not for everyone.

Absolutely loved it, very smoke yet extremely smooth!

My introduction to peaty whiskey. Definitely deep and complex. Harsh, but with enough flavor to back it up.
 
Bradley
Bradley,
Liked the nose But the finish was a bit harsh.

Great!
 
Joseph
Joseph,
Strong initial bite but rich and deep flavor. Pairs well with red meat. Smoky on the nose, salted peat to the palate and rich sweet finish.

A fantastic choice to drink by the sea on a summer night
 
Ron
Ron,
I know some long time scotch drinks that will swear by Talisker but for me the smoke just killed the enjoyment. It was like drinking a camp fire.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
As a fan of smoky whisky, I found this one very enjoyable. Smoky and peaty with a mildly sweet finish. Excellent.
 
Thomas
Thomas,
My all-time favorite, always. The top of the hill above the distillery is all peat bog (and a beautiful view!), so the dilute water adds an extra hit of peat.

Smooth and accessible.

Smoky, salty, smooth
 
Matt
Matt,
Talisker is my go to scotch. Such an amazing blend of smoke and peat and an essence of salt water.
 
Justin
Justin,
If you enjoy gargling with salt water and charcoal, Talisker is the Scotch for you and you can have it. I like it less than Lagavulin and that is saying something.
 
Marc
Marc,
This is my second bottle. From the first sip I was sold. The smokiness is the best I have tasted. Plan on enjoying it best when "Outlander" begins in September.

Love the smokey smoothness of this dram. I would buy it again and again. I recommend this dram with a little water or an ice cube.

Smokey and sublime. Not quite the impact of Lagavulin but delicious nonetheless.

I love this scotch. Salty, peaty, and oh so good! Plus the Bond tie-in makes an even more tempting buy. Bond fan or not, this scotch is great!

Honestly, one of the best scotch whiskeys I have ever tasted. The perfect balance of smokey, spicy, and sweet notes in one dram.

Stephen,
Very smooth. Although I did enjoy the port ruighe much more. Has a sweet taste, followed by smoke, and then a little salt. It lingers for a while as well leaving a nice peaty taste.
