  • Talisker Skye - Not for a Talisker fan

    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

    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

  • Talisker 10 Year old - Peppery punch

    By Marek on 18th Mar 20152015-03-18T16:10:00


    Nose: smoke, brine, see air. Palate: very dry, extremely peppery, salty, coastal. Finish: medium long, peppery and salty. Ballance isn't perfect in this nervous Talisker, but it's still good whisky.

  • Talisker 10 Year old - A Jack of all Trades

    By BARutledge on 13th Mar 20152015-03-13T01:11:00


    This is a scotch's scotch. It's masculine and refined, like a well groomed beard... Alright, all chauvinism aside, this scotch is a jack-of-all-trades; a special hybrid of various styles of single malt… read more

  • Talisker 25 y.o (2006 Bot.) - Gentle giant of Skye

    By Jules on 18th Jan 20152015-01-18T21:23:00


    This is one of the older bottlings of the 25 year old, back when they were still cask strength... Nose: Fruitier than I expected - quince, plum and some apricot, sitting atop notes of bourbon vanilla and… read more

  • Talisker Distillers Edition 2000 - Laphragatalivulisker

    By PeatyZealot on 6th Jan 20152015-01-06T01:44:00


    So far, the few Distillers editions from Diadeo that I tried weren't bad at all. I already like Talisker a lot so I figured this just couldn't go wrong. Got this in a 20cl bottle for €15,- Nose: a very… read more
