BARTENDER'S CHOICE

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.

Talisker Storm On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Smoky Rich Delicate Light

Region

An exuberant expression of this Island whisky.

Appearance

Full gold.

Nose

Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine and an explosion of pepper.

Body

Medium.

Palate

Mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes

Finish

Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.

Information:

Distillery: TaliskerTM

Strength: 45.8% ABV

Place of Origin: Isle of Skye

Taste:

in brief… An exuberant whisky that delivers Talisker’s full-on maritime attack with elemental power and confidence.

in a sentence… An intensely dark, smoky, more brooding Talisker with swirling notes of wood, brine and spice that puts you right at the heart of a storm at sea.

Nose:

Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm to reveal a sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit. Eventually well integrated mellow smoke drifts across the scene as a wild sea turns up briny, fresh clean notes, and an oily explosion of pepper.

Palate:

At first mellow and rich in the mouth then quickly very spicy and increasingly stormy as the Talisker heat comes through. It’s as if the pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins hands with a deep nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a good balance between sweetness, smoke and salt, which is all the more evident when a little water is added.

Expert Reviews
Insights from some of the best in the business

"The name reflects the distiller’s aspiration to enhance the maritime notes in this expression. Refill and rejuvenated casks have both contributed to its maturation. The nose is youthful but rounded, with brine, burning wood embers, vanilla, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, with cranberries and black currants, while peat smoke is always present, plus black pepper. The finish lingers, with walnuts and fruity peat."
