Talisker 10 Year Old Bottling Note

A classic Island whisky from the Isle of Skye. Aged for a minimum of 10 years in American oak casks, this welcome member of Diageo's Classic Malts series has been recognised numerous times for its excellence. Immensely satisfying stuff, with whiffs of warm peat blending with coastal air, balanced by orchard fruit and juicy barley. A spectacular after dinner dram.

It was an Editor's Choice at Whisky Magazine, a gold medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017 and was awarded 'Best Islands Single Malt' at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: A fresh and fragrant nose. Through thick, pungent smoke comes sweet pear and apple peels, with pinches of maritime salt from kippers, seaweed.

Palate: It's a bonfire of peat crackling with black pepper, with a touch of brine and dry barley. A welcome delivery of orchard fruit provides a delicate and beautiful balance.

Finish: In a long finish, bonfire embers toast malt and crystallise a sugary underlay.

Talisker 10 Year Old Reviews

Very special

Peppery, fruity, bold and beautiful flavours that leave me savouring every drop. Have tried a lot of different whiskies over the past year (proved to be the best way of getting through lockdown) and this is my favourite. Best ‘supermarket’ whisky out there.

Best in the price range

I cannot claim to have tasted the most expensive of whiskeys, but I can say with confidence that this is one of if not the best available in its price range. Smokey but not over the top; the smoke does not define the flavour. The salt and pepper contribute to its depth, resulting in a sensory experience that can only be described as tasty.

Fantastic 10 year old

More depth than many 12 and even 15 year olds. Delicate peat, not so intense smoke, great sweetness and light fruitiness followed by a spray of sea salt. One of my favorites and worth every penny.

Very enjoyable from the start to the finish of every sip, glass and bottle

My favourite of the 6 Classics, the extra punch of black pepper in the finish compared with the more subtle Oban 14 is what does it. Smokey Sweet on the nose, with that flowering heather by the sea thing going on. More smoke and sweetness, heather and sea on the palette. Sometimes the sweetness is fruity like pears other times it is less distinct in flavour, but still there to balance the oaky fire, then that black pepper, malt and alcohol finish's everything off. The sweetness can be tasted on the lips afterwards while the black pepper and malt linger with the smoke on the pallet.

Salt & Pepper

The 10 year is very distinctive - doesn't hide its rawness. I can't think of any other malt that achieves that salt and pepper taste. The sweetness (pears) is there, but at least in the 10 year it's a backstage, and there is no pretence that it is balancing the salty, peppery phenols, and - to be frank - the bite of the alcohol.

Very nice middle of the range whiskey

Nice smokey smells,
Smokey, nice amount of warmth. Could be longer and more complex but it is what i was expecting for the price

6th July 2021

Not what it was.

It's still ok, but quality has gone down hill, lost some of its sweetest as has gone a bit 9 volt battery flavour. Will enjoy my bottle but dont think I'll get another

I generally dislike peaty offerings (Laphroig, JW Green, etc), but I absolutely love this. Just the right amount of peatyness to make it different to my usual Speyside preference when I want to change things up, or a guest prefers a little peat.

Dollars and sense.

With the same money and compared to the Ardbeg 10, this would be my choice. At least there is a bit more going on to compliment the smokey punch. Is it brilliant, no. But it's got a rightful place in any cabinet.
