"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?

Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavour finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Ratings & Reviews
Very active on the pallet. Salty and oaky.
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.
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.
Lite smoke, medium salt, pretty smooth. Overall a new favorite for me.
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?
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!
Enjoyable.. to me this is like a weaker version of Lagavulin
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.
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.
Lovely. Perfect.
