“Made on Isle of Skye, this brisk, briny single malt carries honey and campfire smoke aromas on the nose. On the palate, a salted caramel flavor unfolds, with smokiness leading into the brisk finish that brushed with fleeting notes of citrus and rich espresso. It has plenty of alcohol punch, so be sure to add a generous splash of water.” – Kara Newman

“Talisker speaks of the rugged, windblown beauty of its home by the wild seas on the Isle of Skye. The powerful whisky has been adored by many for its sea-salty nose, peaty, smoky character and peppery finish, since 1830. Created to delight and intrigue adorers of the celebrated island whisky, Talisker Storm is more intense and smoky, with enhanced maritime notes that smoothly balance Talisker’s signature warm sweetness. The Master Blender crafts the liquid from both rejuvenated and refill casks at different ages to enhance the vibrant, smoky and intense distillery character in the expression.” -The Distillery

Tasting Notes from Masters 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.”
