Talisker Dark Storm works best served in Talisker Rocks Glass, neat or with a little water.
The Highball: The rugged, intense, smoky Talisker Storm is served over ice with soda in this delicious cocktail – maybe with just a touch of white pepper to bring out the subtle spicy notes.View more cocktails
An intense expression from the oldest distillery on Skye.
A salty, smoky edge combines with hints of aromatic spices and oak, developing into stewed apples.
Exceedingly smooth and sweet with an intense vibrant combination of fresh fruits, blackcurrants and liquorice, slowly disappearing into a tempest of rich spice.
Warm, lingering and powerfully smoky.
"Described as the smokiest whisky produced at Talisker, Dark Storm is exclusive to Travel Retail outlets, and maturation has taken place in deeply charred casks. Rich, fruity spices on the nose, quite citric, with brine and aromatic smoke. The smoke elbows its way to the fore in time. Full, sweet, fruity flavors on the palate, some vanilla, then smoke, licorice, and spice hit home. A classic Talisker smoke and chili finish, but cranked up a notch or two!"
Gavin D Smith, 2013, Whisky Advocate Winter 2013, p.135
"Potent, yet inviting, this has plenty going on to keep the keenest of palates entertained with it."
