Talisker 57° North Reviews

Exceptional quality, few drops of water creates an explosion of flavours

By far the best Talisker has to offer. Those who think Talisker is bad due to the very poor Skye and Storm expressions will not be disappointed with this power house.

Salty sweet smoke

Had to get something to compare to DEd, and was going cask strength route...not disappointed. A bit sweeter than DEd, but smoke arrived at end, which is why I love Talisker. With or without water, this one is enjoyable as it hits a wide spectrum for me.

Wow! Yummy!!

Very tasty, I bought one first and tried it~ then very soon I decided to buy the second same bottle. Really good!

15th March 2020


Despite the 57% abv it is very drinkable and has not a strong alcool taste. The nose is peated and peppery, strong, with notes of chilli. It is a bit "farmy" and I am not big fan of that. I prefer by far the nose of an Ardbeg Corryvrekan or Lagavulin DE more complex and smoky, like real bonfire smoke.
On the palate it becomes salty and peppery again with a long aftertaste.
Interesting, bit it clearly miss a bit of complexity and maturation against other NAS or islay whiskys with an age statement, in the same price range. I think I prefer the Talisker DE which is close in terms of taste, but more fruity.

Move over, all mighty Ardbeg Uigeadail, Talisker 57 North is here!

18th December 2018

Close your eyes

Wow. The nose is strong, as expected at 57%. Ever slightly young. But sip, close your eyes, chew and let those juices release fireside warmth overlooking cloudy crashing waves. My word, this is good. Aaaand i bought two bottles. Badam tsss :-D

1st November 2018


I’d give it ten stars 🌟 if I could!

9th May 2018

Very disappointed

Very obviously young - too young - and lacking any particular depth of character. There is some of the ‘Talisker’ character here but even that is watered down sadly. For the price I wouldn’t pick this over the 10, let alone any of the much better alternatives out there.

Very disappointing

Very obviously young - too young - and without any particular depth of flavour. There is some degree of ‘Talisker’ character here, but even that is watered down imo; for the price, I wouldn’t pick this over the 10, let alone any of the much better alternatives out there.

Not like it was.

This used to be non chill filtered and natural colour. My present bottle is neither. Hugely disappointed. Like all the talisker range its gone backwards in quality recently. Still nice but just not stellar anymore.

26th December 2017

Just WOW!!

Just opened a bottle of this nectar of Gods and WOW!! This is good, really good!
Some citrus and smoke on the nose and the palate is very thick, some spice, some caramel sweetness and a little brine. Incredible mellow for 57%
Add some water and the spiceness really kick in! Crazy stuff.

If you are ever in Ottawa,Canada go to the Highland Pub on Rideau Street. Went there for the first time to have a couple of drinks with an old buddy from high school. Great selection and very knowledgeable staff. I was ready to order the Talisker Storm and our waiter suggested the bump in price was worth giving the 57 North a try. What a fantastic whisky! There is so much going on, from the nose to palate and onwards. I'm not a fan of the burn anywhere in the tasting and this had none. Can't say much more about the composition as the tasting notes from MoM are pretty much bang on. I will be buying a bottle of this very soon....exceptional!

Class in my glass

This is fabulous. For an NAS malt to deliver such a sublime experience is as rare as scotch mist and scotch mist certainly appears in the glass immediately after adding a little water. Like. Huge nose and flavour on the palate and long finish. Simply astounding and right up there with the Ardbeg NAS offerings.

4th February 2017


It's a good whisky but lacks a bit of quality compared to Ardbeg Uigaedail and Corryvreckan as it's in the same price category. You need a bit of water to this and that's not cause of the alcohol, you need water to open up the flavours.

21st December 2016

Witches Brew

I tried this on a rare trip to a fine dining establishment in Auld Reekie that has an extensive Whisky list. I was not disappointed. A truly exceptional malt with a rich, deep flavour that lives long in the palate. The only thing you will regret about buying a bottle of 57 degrees North is that you only bought one.

31st August 2016


I really enjoyed this whisky. The nose is spicy, salty and becomes somewhat gluey. A very pleasant and robust nose, I like to just smell it for minutes on end. Palate is robust but less spicy, very smooth, one can easily drink this neat (no water). Very good.

29th August 2016


Nice aroma and lasting taste. A man's scotch

11th April 2016

a taste of this whisky and your are back in Isle of skye

Don't need any words - just taste it !

13th January 2016

Not the real McCoy...

I was rather disappointed by this Talisker.
Although being spicy and powerful and rather peaty, it lacks depth and the character of the 10yo. And it has a somewhat unbalanced finish.
Besides it is massively overpriced for what you get.
I am sorry, but at the end of the day I cannot really agree with all those enthusiastisch reviews.
At least I would advise you to try before you buy.

2nd January 2016


This is a massive Talisker.
Absolute perfection, and in spite of the fact that I normally avoid
no age statement offerings, I will happily admit that this
is my favourite Single Malt on the planet.
Tarry, phenolic, joy!!
I just love this distillery.

26th December 2015

My favourite Whisky

I first tried this a number of years ago and instantly knew it was my favourite whisky. I love Talisker anyway but this one is the best of the best in my opinion and I'll continue to buy it as a special treat when I can justify the luxury!

7th December 2015


I have waited twelve months to purchase my first bottle of 57 north and well worth the wait. I am a keen lover of smoky malts and this is beautiful yet light with a hint of sweetness leaving a comforting afterglow

2nd December 2015

Andy Chalmers

Takes malt whisky to the level in my opinion, excellent.

18th November 2015

Do it

If you like Talisker (I mean, Talisker 10) then you might love this. Do yourself a favour and treat yourself. Is it worth twice the price? I dunno - but boy, this is a good whisky.

23rd October 2015

Very strong taste but not a pleasant one.

Out of all the malts I have tried this is my least favorite. It is very strong tasting and the after taste to me is offensive. I did describe what it tasted like to me but my review was taken down but I did not use any offensive language just honesty. So I have removed the description of the aftertaste and hopefully free speech will prevail this time. I will not be buying it again.

12th August 2015

This is the One

Forget Talisker Storm, Dark Storm, Skye and all the other rubbish NAS Taliskers. They are all poor but more expensive versions of the great 10 year old. However, this one is something different and if you are a Talisker fan you will love it.

5th August 2015

Awesome but...

... in my opinion the ardbeg uigedail is better. I bought it because I am a huge talisker fan, it's good but the uigedail just has more flavor. And it's cheaper

10th July 2015


Nose full of peat smoke, leather with citrus and cherry notes flickering around. Neat, the peppered peat literally makes a circle around the whole tongue. Palate not hugely complex, again pepper, peat and wood smoke, old ropes and a little iodine. Long finish with mainy pepper and wood (a little chili?). Awesome! That said, when you get a good bottle of the 10 year old at £25 at times, that is also pretty awesome and half the price. However, I don't think the 10 could ever ride the 57% alcohol wave and have the palate survive.

16th June 2015

Hugely Complex

Like licking a bbq coal, once it has cooled of course, that had been soaked in pork chop and hot dog dripping. Sweet, citrusy, smokey and nearing the limits of earthly superlatives.

25th November 2014


simply perfect. Best bottle i have tasted in a long time.

19th November 2014


I've always been a Talisker fan and this is one of the most stellar bottles to ever from from the distillery. Big, bold, beefy (I get huge bacon on the palate), and immensely satisfying. If you are wearing socks at the time, it will blow them off. But this dram rides the tidal wave of 57% alcohol content with exquisite finesse. Just wow.

3rd November 2014

Birthday Present

This is a must for every whiskey drinker. Smooth with a very pleasant after burn. Thank you son.

4th October 2014

6th March 2014

Too bad

Too bad I cant ever find it in any Bar in this city (adelaide, SA, Oz). simply perfect (at its Value)..

21st February 2014

Really REALLY Great!!!

If you like Talisker, and If you like cask or near cask strength, this is simply amazing. Since I first tried Talisker, I've always proclaimed to my friends that Talisker is the most dangerous liquid on the planet. The 57 deg North is the MOST dangerous of all that I have tried (10yr, 18 yr, Port Ruighe, Distiller's 2001, bttl'd 2012.

28th January 2014

One of the best

One of the best Taliskers out there.

and the rating from my above comment


7th January 2014

1st taste

I just bought a bottle from Lavinia in Paris, just got home and my first impression is WOW. At the store i was conflicted between buying Lagavulin vs Ron Zacapa rum vs this Talisker and im happy the whisky expert in the store recommended this one.

7th January 2014


Incredible intense smokey flavor, combined with 57% alcohol ensures a flavor bomb that seems to go on and on and ...
And all of this at only 60€ (bought online) rank it at the top of my "bang for my buck" list!

28th November 2013


Best Talisker I've had so far, beautiful finish that lingers and lingers

17th October 2013


One of my favorites always . Incredibly long finish . Must buy !

14th September 2013

rise and shine

... forgot the rating...

10th September 2013

Rise and shine

taste is always personal but some do not have taste at all... beautiful highclass stuff.

10th September 2013


I love a good, strong oak/smoky/peat/pepper scotch. It needs to be bold and have a great finish. This is right up there. On a review recommendation I gave this one a shot :-) and bought a litre to boot. If you like the Laphroiag Quarter Cask you'll enjoy this one, too.

22nd January 2013

Very Good

A buddy of mine gave me his last glass of this stuff and it was the best scotch I ever had. Unfortunately while looking for my cigar lighter I accidentally kicked the glass into the fire which erupted in a blaze of awesomeness that lit up my back yard. Regardless even though cut short it was very good and I highly recommend.

8th December 2012


I was fortunate enough to pick up a bottle of this for £42.50 (£20 under the rrp, wahoo!).

Cracking malt this, absolutely a Talisker, so you know what you are getting. Thick mouthfeel with a sweetness in there somewhere and dairy (think cream/butter). Pepper kick on the back and nice long finish, a very well balanced dram. Worth it at full price, let alone the bargin I picked this up for. Would buy again.

19th November 2012


This is as good as the Talisker 10 in my opinion - despite the strength, it's actually gentler on the nose when sampled neat, but it becomes a peaty bruiser with a touch of water. It's a bit like getting 2 whiskies for the price of 1.

22nd June 2012

Extremely nice

I wouldn't go so far as to use the internet to insult someone's intellect but it is definitely better than 1 1/2. With one or drops of water, it has an extremely bold, complex, daring flavour and a most pleasing length which allows the different tastes to develop on the pallet. Worth getting & a favorite of mine.

6th February 2012

Way better than 1 1/2 !!

Whoever rated this 1 1/2 stars is a moron.
This is one of the finest malts to come in at a very reasonable price point I've tasted.

17th December 2011

Good Talisker

More soft and round than usual, but still good :-)
