Talisker Skye

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.

Talisker Skye is matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks. Talisker Skye whisky is 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'.

Forbidden Upgrade
May I pass on a tip from Master of Malt Charlie MacLean

If a whisky strikes you as a bit fierce, add a wee drop of sherry to bottle, single /max of double measure, and leave to marry for a few weeks. Softens it significantly, Distillers forbidden to do this-but you can !

Admirable attempt, but...
... not Talisker's best work, compared to 10, Storm or Distiller's Editions.

Light on the traditional Talisker maritime/Atlantic Ocean/sea-flavored smoke compared to those other bottlings, & generally underwhelming by comparison to them, as well.
Good but not great. And I love most other Talisker offerings, but I wouldn't buy this one again.

Beautiful tasting whisky.
Sweet and smokey. Not usually a fan of smokey whisky but this one is beautiful. Smooth and harsh at the same time.

Leave on the shelf
A birthday present I'm not enjoying. Not sure who writes the Nose and Palate side of smell and taste. Smells like disinfectant and tastes like Dettol/TCP. So much better out there for the same price and not as harsh, but at least its made by the sea. Thoroughly recommended if you are suffering from Tonsillitis. A beautiful box, that's not needed and ends up in the recycling bin, but i guess is needed to fool the buyer??

Very nice whisky for the amount of money.
Very enjoyable because of high alcohol percentage.
Smokiness and sweetness goes very well together.

This is my birthday bottle..\m/..
A big fan of the Talisker variants, 2 yrs ago, had the Talisker 10yr old, fell in love, and now this Isle of Skye on my buddayy, just crazy, smokey, fiery, citrusy, perfect on-the-rocks stuff & truly worth it single malt.

PS, but i feel the 10yr old was better by a bit.!

*Surprisingly Nice*
When I was recently gifted a bottle of this, I didn't know what to expect given some of the harsh reviews of this whisky. I love Talisker 10, find the Dark Storm very nice, and to my surprise I found this to be very enjoyable. As the notes say, it's a mixture of mild smoke, sweetness and spice and I find that in just the right amounts which makes it an enjoyable, easy drinking single malt for an autumn/winter evening.
