"The king o' drinks, as I conceive it, Talisker."
 
 Robert Louis Stevenson

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.

Their latest release is the Talisker Storm. It's a no age statement Whisky comprised of a blend of Talisker's single malts, aged between 3 to 25 years in a mix of refill and rejuvenated casks (older casks which have been de-charred and re-charred to give them a new lease on life, imparting wood influence when again filled with spirit).

Talisker Storm is a mighty fine showcase of a significant shift in the single malt Whisky space toward focusing on the character of a Whisky over its age. In this instance, you'll never feel that the lack of a specified age is about conserving precious stocks of older Whiskies. Storm has won many awards in the past two years, including Whisky Advocate's Highlands/Islands Single Malt of the Year. Whisky purists might not like it, but so what, Tasting is Believing, remember?

Tony
Tony,
Beautiful amber color. Complex honey-peppery fruit on the nose. Creamy honey apricot while still on the tongue. Quite long and very dry finish of lingering briny smoke and chili oak heat
 
Erik
Erik,
My definitive scotch is Talisker. I really like this expression. Not my favorite but I am never put off by it
 
Joshua
Joshua,
Different... I smell peat, but theres no peat. The smoke is strong and coupled well with the salty brine.

Its...ok. The smoke is good but it pales in comparison to Talisker's other offerings.

A smooth start but the peaty finish brings some burn.
 
Brita
Brita,
I love this scotch! It has a lot of lovely flavors with an unexpected salt of the sea flavor. Just brilliant

For those that enjoy a little bit more smoky scotch, this is for you.
 
Guillermo

Smokey, peppery, sweet honey taste. Smooth on the entrance with a strong finish that last for a while. Overall not bad.
 
Ryan
Ryan,
Truly enjoyable and reminds me of my trip to Scotland every time I have a nip.
 
Tristan
Tristan,
Nice golden-amber color. Smells like a huge beef brisket covered in salt about to be put in a smoker, so savory and briny! Dry honey with a touch of banana and oak on the palate. Finishes bitter. May have just found my favorite Scotch!
 
David
David,
Hey Smoke, go figure. Has an easy way about it though and a lingering warm finish that I kind of like. This is like a lazy cool night, sipping while flipping through a motorcycle magazine kinda Scotch.
 
Kelly
Kelly,
Way too smokey and harsh for my tastes. My boyfriend and I couldn't finish it. Only time I have actually poured out a whisky.
 
Rich
Rich,
Smoky! Very good though.

Perfect expression of smoke and complex flavor derived from the sea.
 
Aaron
Aaron,
Nice peat without being overpowering. Some honey sweetness lurking in the background. I'd call it Islay-lite
 
Kevin
Kevin,
Amazingly smooth with just the right amount of peat

It was a full but not over powering smoke that lingers pleasantly...

Good nose. Not crazy impressive.
 
guest

Love how peaty this was.
 
Alex
Alex,
As others have said, a very busy and bold whiskey. It was too salty for me, and combined with the peaty/smokiness it wasn't a drink for me.
 
Josh
Josh,
Very active on the pallet. Salty and oaky.
 
Daniel
Daniel,
Very nice introduction to the islands. The nose is smoky of course, but with considerable fruitiness and oak as well. On the tongue smoke and honey compete for dominance, with the honey winning in my opinion. There is also notes of tart fruit. The finish is where the smoke is most prominent, lingering long after the dram is gone. Most excellent.

My favorite Talisker. Very bold and peaty. Not for delicate palates.
 
Kevin
Kevin,
My go-to, I would encourage those that are a fan to try the Talisker DARK Storm, aged in charred barrels.

Rich, full, mysterious, satisfying, never tiring

Wonderful smokey flavor and nose with a fantastic bite on the tongue.

Konnor,
Lite smoke, medium salt, pretty smooth. Overall a new favorite for me.
 
guest
guest,
Those who make Scotch and those who review Scotch have spent decades telling us that age is critically important. Now they want us to believe that they were lying, and that we were fools to believe them? Were they lying then or are they lying now?
 
Klemen
Klemen,
Smokey and salty. Basically a weaker version of Lagavulin 16, but not in a bad way. Would recommend to those who think Lagavulin is too smokey and don't like the extra long finish. Love it!
 
guest
guest,
Enjoyable.. to me this is like a weaker version of Lagavulin
 
Brad
Brad,
Peaty, salty, and a great sipper for a cool night with a cigar.

This had a good peaty flavor, not overly strong, definitely try this one!

Similar to Oban 14. Pretty good.
 
Mr.
Mr.,
Took me a whole bottle to like it. Initially, it was just bitter and smoke. Through the bottle I was able to pick up some saltiness. Not my fav, but would drink again.

Very smokey flavour and nose, maybe too much so.
