Talisker Storm Whisky
Spicy, mellow, smoky flavours combine with a honeyed sweet maltiness and an explosion of pepper, before the culmination of a clean, warming finish, with a lasting aftertaste. Savour Talisker Storm's peppery sweet and salty flavours neat, or draw them out gently by adding a little water to your glass.
About the BrandDuring the 1990's Talisker was usually one of the first single malts that a relative malt whisky novice would get to try. As part of Diageo's series of six 'Classic Malts' (along with Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Oban and Lagavulin on Islay) it was one of the few Scotch single malts that could be found on the shelves of almost every reasonably stocked liquorist. Together with Lagavulin, Talisker represented a heavier side of the single malt spectrum.

Nose: At first restrained yet spicy, with a hint of struck matches; fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm to reveal a honeyed sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit. Eventually a little well integrated mellow smoke drifts across the scene as a wild sea turns up briny, fresh clean notes, and an oily explosion of pepper.
Palate: At first sweetly mellow and rich in the mouth then quickly very spicy and increasingly stormy as the Talisker heat comes through. It’s as if the pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins hands with a deep nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a good balance between sweetness, smoke and salt, which is all the more evident when a little water is added.
Finish: Clean and of medium length, warming, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which late peaty burnt embers can be found.
