I was lucky enough to win 2 bottles of Dark Storm on a recent auction site which is great because it was only available as a travel retail bottling and I don't fly that much. This whisky is matured in heavily charred casks and that has produced a very unique Talisker to my mind. The nose has loads of smoke along with the signature salty Talisker characteristics. Although this is a NAS I would suggest that it is quite well aged. On the palette is very creamy with the characteristic spice and vanilla we have grown to love. It is the finish which really distinguishes this whisky. It is sooty and drying with a great length. In some ways this reminds me of Lagavulin 16. All in all a fab whisky and one that any Talisker lover needs to seek out and try.

I agree with you, it tastes like a younger Lagavulin. An excellent whisky, far better than the "standard" Storm.
