Talisker Skye Bottling Note

Talisker Skye was introduced in early 2015, named after the beautiful island on which the distillery resides. This expression brings with it a more well-rounded and sweet flavour profile packed with fresh citrus, sweet smoke, peppery spice and traditional Talisker maritime notes. It's matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks. Perfect for those who perhaps find the classic Talisker flavour profile a bit too much, not to say that Talisker fans won't enjoy it too.

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Sweet stuff, toffees and vanilla ice cream up front, almost grain-like. Becomes increasingly honeyed. There's a little coastal influence here too, just hints of a sweet Caol Ila perhaps, with very restrained smoke.

Palate: Honeyed toasted oak, sappy wood, only a little pepper and smoke, apple turnovers and hints of lemon and lime Opal Fruits. Fennel seeds.

Finish: Drying and slightly less sweet, hints of spice and smoke.

Overall: A more approachable, sweet Talisker. 'The Isle of Skye in June'.

Talisker Skye Reviews

Smoky, smooth, sweet. Love it!

Whisky, like most things in life, us subjective. An occasional Whisky drinker over the years, this was a Father's Day gift from one of my beautiful daughters. In my opinion a great choice, smoky and smooth.
I can't believe some of the pretentious waffle written below, but, each to their own. Cheers!

Down the sink!

I'm afraid I fully agree with the couple who thought it tasted like disinfectant ... and down the sink it went!

Fire... du, du, durrrr, du, du. Fire...

I don't know who writes the tasting notes but all can taste is pepper and spice. Not a nice whisky, glad I only paid £25 for it, although I'm not sure if it's worth that.

Honey smoke..

Each to their own...liked the honey smoke flavour but one person's honey is another's 'whatever's.
IMO does not deserve mixing with ginger ???

Not a fan

I bought this on offer for £25 which is lucky because I’m really not a fan and would be even more disappointed if I paid full price. I’m by no means a whiskey expert but I find the taste of honey and smoke too strong.

Aweful.

My wife and I both thought it tasted like disinfectant when we tasted it! Even after diluting with ginger wine. We were even more surprised to see that other people thought the same when we googled it. The worst whisky we’ve ever tasted!

A bargain when on offer promo but....

Recent purchase as £25 at Morrisons. It's not as I remember from a couple of years ago, less smooth and not a peat monster but with a definite wood ash aftertaste which whilst intriguing, is not wholly pleasant.

Annoyingly good

I was really looking forward to not liking this. I've never been a fan of other Taliskers (often very much the opposite), and this one in particular has been a firm favourite of an extremely irritating friend. Alas, it turns out he was right.

It's lovely stuff. Not pretensious, no delusions of grandeur, just a glass full of pleasent flavour to help you unwind after a long day.

Not my thing!

3 miniature bottles received as a Christmas present. Two bottles tried and gone down sink so far. Obviously not to my taste.

Dreadful

The worst whisky ever, tastes of disinfectant, will never buy it again!
