Talisker Storm

by Oliver Klimek on January 15, 2014


My Tasting Notes:

Colour: Medium gold
Nose: Smoked pineapples, banana, vanilla, liquorice, hints of bacon, cloves, nutmeg, hints of pepper.
Palate: Medium peat, tinned topical fruit salad, vanilla, liquorice, cardamom, nutmeg and pepper.
Finish: Long, fruity and smoky with a good dose of spice
Overall: Following the trend of wood-engineered NAS whisky, this Talisker offers a different, fruitier, angle on the distillery than the regular 10 yo; good but not necessarily better – and more expensive.

Rating: 85/100 – Price Tag $$$$$ – Value for your Money $$$$$

Buy Talisker Storm at The Whisky Exchange

Tasted blind for the 2013 Malt Maniacs Awards where it won a bronze medal, re-tasted for notes.

Sort of what I expected: alright, but Talisker didn’t reinvent the malt wheel by dropping an age statement (or even make a convincing argument for the quality of young whisky, for that matter, given no one will say how young, by percentage content, it is). Less for more, as quality continues to slide.
