Talisker 10 45,8%
A massive success as the island representative in Diageo's 'Classic Malts' series, Talisker 10yo's profile keeps increasing as more fans discover its intense coastal spicy, peaty character. A truly elemental malt.
Another that should need no introduction. The thing to look for in Talisker, as with all smoky whiskies, is sweetness that give the requisite balance to the drying effect of smoke. Underneath Talisker's smoke, which ain't as all-pervading as Lagavulin, is a sweet pear-like quality. When young there are notes of the land: heather, moor, sweet seaweed, and a finish that has a distinctive cracked black pepper hit.
Appearance: Brilliant gold.
Nose: Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.
Palate: A rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of pepper.
Finish: Huge, long, warming peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.
Talisker Skye 45,8%
An easy-drinking Talisker, taking the distillery's classically rugged character and softening it out, while maintaining the smoky and sweet notes the distillery is known for. More approachable, but still definitely Talisker.
Nose: Rich notes of stewed apple and pear with some treacle toffee and hint of marzipan. There’s some subdued smoke puffing away in the background along with cured meat and a touch of liquorice. Much more approachable than the 10yo.
Palate: Ah, this is Talisker, all right … there’s that trademark punch of black and pepper and smoke, accompanied by stone fruits and a rich, mouthfilling texture.
Finish: On the short side, with the smoke outlasting the fruit.
Talisker Storm 45,8%
Released in early 2013, Talisker Storm has all the warm, smoky, peppery characteristics we all love in the standard Talisker 10yo - but they've been turned up a notch, with more smoke, more spices, and a bigger than ever flavour explosion. Talisker Storm seems likely to be a huge hit.
Nose: Rich and unexpectedly honeyed initially. Then some pleasing singed oaky notes and bandagey aromas. Now bonfire smoke comes through. There even seems to be some milk chocolate and appley fruit lurking in the rear. Everything in place; all very promising.
Palate: Medium-full, the usual Diageo polished mouthfeel, with initial honey and then a very decent dose of hot smoke. The oak is there too, with vanilla and some (actually quite polite) peppery spices. The young whisky component is well-masked and the whole is rather more restrained in terms of mouthfeel than I expected, but the flavour intensity is, in my opinion, unarguably greater than the standard Talisker 10, which to be honest I have found surprisingly tame of late. Gets sweeter towards the death as the pepper lingers, counterpointed with unexpected sweet fruit and even a note of strawberry liquorice which somehow works very well.
Finish: Woody and spicy without becoming bitter. Good length. Sweetness returns at the death.
Talisker Port Ruighe 45,8%
An early 2013 addition to Talisker's range, taking their classic Skye whisky and finishing it in ruby port casks, rounding the edges and bringing in rich, fruity sweetness.
Nose: Cinder toffee, chocolate, salted caramel, dried fruit and a hint of rose-water Turkish Delight.
Palate: Stewed raisins, sweet caramel and more of the gentle floral rosiness, with smoky burnt toffee.
Finish: Long and smoky, with the sweetness fading to reveal cocoa.
Talisker 57 north 57%
A distillery-bottled cask strength Talisker, 57° North is deceptively smooth for a whisky at this strength, but still a muscular presence on the palate, with the pepper and chilli Talisker hallmarks very much in evidence. Picked up the top prize in its category (Best Island No Age) at the World Whisky Awards 2012.
Nose: The nose is very pungent and full. Notes of sour citrus develop with rich peat smoke. Hints of peppered oak and notes of sea spray pounding stones and a little kelp.
Palate: The palate is thick and full. Creamy manuka honey and lemon juice, notes of peppered oak and spice, a little butter perhaps and plenty of dry wood.
Finish: The finish is long with black pepper and oak.
