  • Talisker Skye - First but not last

    First Talisker and gone for the NAS Skye to open, I wanted to try something with a little more peat/smoke hence the baby step over to Islands before Islay. On fresh opening there is a lovely sweet aroma… read more

  • Talisker Skye - Talisker Goes NAS

    By talexander on 31st Aug 20152015-08-31T23:43:00


    Amazingly, I got this 1L bottle of the new Talisker expression for absolutely nothing. See, a friend of my girlfriend's was travelling in Europe, and I guess he owed her a favour - she asked him to find… read more

  • Talisker 1975 25 Year old - Plenty going on, but rounded

    By McGrain on 6th Aug 20152015-08-06T17:45:00


    Nose: Stewed Fruit, Sherry, caught on a freshness and spiked with maybe a little ginger? All bound up in a "thickness" that some complex whisky has to me. Mouth: Incredible meeting of tang and smooth,… read more

  • Talisker 1981 20 Year old Sherry Cask - The Zombie Apocalypse Part 5

    By SquidgyAsh on 31st Jul 20152015-07-31T16:13:00


    An infected's screams shatter the still air, and then an answering cry. I'm running as fast as I can, but I know I'm not going to make it, I can't move fast enough, they're going to catch me. The naked… read more

  • Talisker 18 Year old - A smooth classic

    By Nemesis101 on 29th Jul 20152015-07-29T21:17:00


    The nose on this opens up quite sweetly but peat and salt are apparent almost immediately afterwards. It becomes slightly bitter with mineral edges after a few minutes. Peatiness remains strong but the… read more

  • Talisker Skye - Not for a Talisker fan

    By Pierre_W on 14th Jul 20152015-07-14T07:52:00


    Talisker distillery is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye and was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill, sons of the local doctor. It was rebuilt between 1880 and 1887, and was extended in… read more

  • Talisker Storm - A Light Squall

    The reviewed sample of Talisker Storm is compliments of @Jonathan, and is from a bottle open for 2 months Nose: lots of Talisker sea brine, and some of the characteristic Talisker distillery black pe… read more

  • Talisker 18 Year old - 10y old with interest

    By Uisgebetha on 6th May 20152015-05-06T07:41:00


    It seemed to take Talisker an age to offer the market something between the accessible 10 year old and the expensive and therefore exclusive 25 year old. I bought this bottle at almost the first oppor… read more

  • Talisker 57º North - Disappointingly good

    By Uisgebetha on 6th May 20152015-05-06T07:39:00


    Equating latitude with alcohol content seems quite a clever bit of marketing to sell a young NAS almost cask strength whisky at a moderately inflated price or am I just an old cynic. It’s a good line if… read more

  • Talisker Storm - Decent, but over-hyped...

    By hunggar on 10th Apr 20152015-04-10T06:18:00


    We’ve got the “Storm” here, a bottling that seems to be positioning itself as an alternative to Talisker 10. Talisker’s own rejuvenated and refill barrels have been used to accentuate the brand’s house… read more
