Product Description

Talisker is the malt whisky distillery made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, windswept, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. It is a powerful, challenging single malt, with a sea-salty nose, peaty, smoky character and peppery finish remarkably evocative of the rugged, windblown beauty of its island home.The spirit will always be double distilled to create a rich, deep character embodying maritime characteristics of a coastal whisky.

A good surprise upon tasting. Decently complex nose, good hit of flavour and a good smooth drink without the rough edge and burn you generally get from a 10 year old. It is not Jura smooth but then it has a lot more going on than Jura 10.

Well worth trying.

I have bought more Talisker than any other single malt and despite the almost limitless choice of other whiskies available I still find myself yearning to go back to Talisker 10, it's one of my 'all-round' favourite whiskies.

It has quite a heavy smoky/peaty flavour with a hit of sea water/weed so it's not something everyone will get along with but it's balanced very nicely with a sweet fruitiness like you get from Speyside or Highland whisky's along with a fair bit of spice. It's has some vanilla notes you get from the ex-bourbon casks, most reviews mention pepper but I get more nutmeg and cinnamon than anything and perhaps a touch of cloves and ginger. One thing's for sure it's certainly not in danger of being called a bland whisky. So if you don't like smoky whiskies then it's probably best to stay away, however this is so good it'll probably convert you.

Actually, this is THE whisky from Skye - Talisker is, surprisingly, the only distillery on that island. Islay, Jura and many of the other Hebrides have many more, Islay being the jewel in the crown. Talisker is often ranked with Laphroaig as the peatiest of all single malts, although it doesn't have quite such a pronounced "TCP" taste. However, you'd be well advised to steer clear of it if you like your whisky smooth and mellow!

The Talisker distillery on the west coast of Skye is amazingly busy, for such an isolated spot. If you turn up at random, you may well find you have to wait for a place on one of the guided tours - although it's worth it. (As is the scenery on the way there and back).

Delivery was swift and the precious bottle was lovingly packed in two concentric boxes and plenty of brown paper, in addition to its own heavy cardboard tube. Best of all, the price was exceedingly bargainous, which makes anything taste even better to the true Scot!

A single malt whisky from Skye, this is not your Aldi "Queen Bess" rubbish. This is a very robust whisky with a strong peaty flavour. Now, I've heard whiskey described as "peaty" many a time and, never having chewed a lump of Highland compost it means nothing to me. In fact, the taste is strong, smoky and medicinal more like toffee flavoured TCP than John MacInnes No. 4. There is also an unctuous oily texture on the tongue that you've never experienced in anything you've ever drunk. That might be enough to put you off if the best you've ever tried is Johnny Walker, but give this a go.

This distinctive tipple isn't a whisky to get smashed on, but neither is it to be taken lightly - it's an education for your taste buds.

As a fan of whisky i read the reviews and chose to sample this one as i have been looking for that "TCP" kind of smell.
As soon as i tried this i knew this was what i had been looking for, its not to everyone's taste as my mate does like a whisky but not to keen on this one, but for me this is a really nice and complex whisky that i thoroughly enjoy.
Very peaty and smoky just to my taste.

It's just a beautiful single malt. Peaty, fruity and toffee-e with a lovely smoky finish. In fact, the finish lingers longer in the throat than any other whisky I've ever drunk - you go to bed having cleaned your teeth and there it is, behind your nose.

It's a decent tipple at about 46% yet there's barely a hint of alcohol burn. The taste is so complex that you almost forget you're drinking whisky. I never really 'got' how one could describe a whisky as 'salty' until I tasted Talisker; think toffee apple mixed with 'posh salted caramel dessert in restaurant' and you're pretty much there. Utterly delightful.
