The Mellow Talisker.
 
Talisker distillery was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskil at Carbost, on the the Isle of Skye. In all these years Talisker's distillation method has remained virtually the same, refusing to go with the flow of the industry, other than with the necessary health and safety improvements. As the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker's drams are quite idiosyncratic, defining an Island malt style that is their very own.
 
Talisker Skye, named after the island on which the distillery is situated, takes the typically heavily peated and sweet currents of Talisker and mellows them out. It was released in early 2015 and has been matured in American and toasted oak casks. While the obvious Talisker traits are still there, this is a good malt to use as an introduction to some of the distillery’s more heavily peated options.
 
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma

Renee,
Spicy and intense. Numbs my tongue. There’s a lot of depth to the flavors including a bit of saltiness. This one benefits from a bit of water.

A little rough around the edges, but in an enjoyable essence of the phrase. The aromatics are as forward in peat as one would expect of a decent Scotch Whisky, and there are pleasantly prominent oceanic expressions. The price was just under 40€ (in Germany) with two quality glasses packaged alongside the bottle. Not bad at all for that price. Have I had better? Simply, yes. At the same time, I would have more redeeming factors than not in a blind tasting.

Smokey and sweet with a bit of an oakey flavour (subtle). A nice drink to finish the day on!

Bob,
Peaty and spicy but reasonably ok. The peatier, smokier styles are not my personal favorites.

Did not enjoy the after taste left by the citrus this will probably sit in my cupboard for a long time

Peter,
British Airways have it at their lounges in the UK and beyond (well, they had it in their Heathrow T5 and Toronto lounges anyway). Nose is definitely vintage Talisker. Smoky and peaty. Hints of citrus as well as noted above. I wasn't very enamoured with the taste. Not sure if its just because the bottle has been sitting out in the open or not but the taste was quite muted to what I'm used to with Talisker. If a friend has it, I'll definitely ask for a simple drop just so I can give it another go in more...controlled circumstances.
