Storm definitely has the character and profile of a talisker expression peat, smoke and the usual salty sweet complexity. What I find odd is oily bitterness that hits mid way in the sip and again in the after taste although in the end the oak really pushes through in the finnish. I think I would like this dram more if I hadn't tasted talisker before (and it wasn't a favorite) I think it just a little young and under developed to be great.

@casualtorture The problem I have comparing it to the 10 yr, it the 10 yr was the first single malt was the first single malt I knowingly tasted so I tend to see it through rose tinted glasses, the storm feels like it is young whisky matured in old talisker barrels to help talisker cope with demand, I would always purchase the 10 yr. It by no means a bad whisky its just not up to taliskers high standards.
