"An intense and vibrant whisky. Well balanced waves of smoke and sweetness."Rob Allanson 2013, Whisky Magazine, Issue 112, p.68
Savour Talisker Storm's peppery sweet and salty flavours neat, or draw them out with a little water.
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 recipe
An exuberant expression of this Island whisky.
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.
Mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes
Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
Strength: 45.8% ABV
Place of Origin: Isle of Skye
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.
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.
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.
"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."
