Talisker Storm Bottling Note

Talisker Storm was released in early 2013 as a no age statement whisky, which was matured in specifically selected refill and toasted American oak casks. An intense and vibrant dram, the Storm offers up plenty of distillery character alongside some smokier depth and complexity.

With a classic Talisker profile, a depth of beautiful flavours and a very reasonable price point, this is an ideal single malt for those thinking of exploring the island whisky category. If you're looking for a cocktail serving, this Scotch is simply begging to used in a Old Fashioned - now where you could find a recipe for one of those...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Initial brine, but not as abrupt as the 10 Year Old, quite creamy by comparison. Banana. Banana angel delight? Window putty, hint of sticking plasters and barbecues, citrus. White pepper develops towards the bottom of the glass.

Palate: Thick and mouth-coating with wood smoke, brine, some tin and chilli heat too.

Finish: Red chilli peppers and oak dryness with a hint of embers.

Overall: A welcome addition to the Talisker range, and probably the smokiest whisky to be produced on the Isle of Skye.

Talisker Storm Reviews

Brine and bananas

Weirdly, I get the banana sweets totally. Thankfully no putty! But lots of brine and tempted to try this with seafood. Very good indeed!

A fine single malt dram and great value

I am a big fan of Talisker 10 and in my market in NC, the storm is $50 compared to $70 for the 10. This bottle is a great value, all the balance and flavor of the 10 , in terms of spice, pepper, vanilla, caramel, oak, slight brine and moderate smoke, so I recommend it. Still would give a nod to Lagavulin 16 or Ardbeg uigeadail as more complex and smoky drams, but not a fair fight given they are $100 and $90 respectively in my area. If you like Talisker this is a must, if you don't know Talisker yet and want to start with this as your first Talisker, this is a solid dram.

Exactly what the chaps at MofM said.

Oh I love this! Smoke and brine with TCP and foam banana sweets.

Another standout from the Masters on Skye!

Talisker 10, The Distiller's Edition, North 57°, all winners from the Talisker distillery, & this one is no exception!
Typical salty brine & peat smoke strong up front, fades into a peppery citrus-like finish that just briefly lingers, but pleasingly so. Therein lies the puzzle. With no age statement known for certain, one is left to ponder. I'm guessing this is somewhere between 5-8 years old, as it just slightly lacks the depth of the classic 10. Not necessarily inferior, but it comes up distinctly unique, despite the strong flavors similar to the 10 up front.
But, know this: I know some ppl out there full-on insist on age-statement to give a whisky a favorable review, or even a chance, but to those folks, I would say, you're the one that's missing out. It simply wouldn't be fair to dismiss this expression as "Talisker 10 Lite", as it has plenty, more than enough good, going on all by itself to stand on its own as a fantastic scotch whisky, age-statement or no.

Not an Islay, but has the subtle notes.

Beautiful whisky. NOT an Islay, has the subtle notes of peat and brine. If Lagavulin 16 is the *peatiest" whisky you like this top value a try.

As satisfying dram as you'll find

NAS? No problem. Talisker produce a BIG whisky and this upstart is no exception. As satisfying dram as you'll find. A whiff of peat wafted away by the sea air. Lovely.

It's an Islay scotch not single malt

I taste more like an Islay single malt similar to Ardberg so I did not like it

An Explosion of Flavor

This dram will please those who enjoy a peated Scotch. Although the peat and smokiness is a little underwhelming, there is a unique and flavorful complexity of sherry notes, dark fruits and a hint of chocolate. Sure, it's not the Islay heat and boldness but for the money, this a squirt of deliciousness.

Peat. Peat. Peat. Smoke. And a drop of sherry.

Its been awhile since I had this one, maybe 2 years or so. I don't recall it being a peat bomb but this bottle I opened yesterday sure is. If you're looking for peat at a good price this is your dram. If you don't like peat then the bad reviews are your people. Perhaps a bit over the top.
