Since 1830 Talisker has been the only distillery on the storm-battered shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.

There are few whiskies that tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. To know Talisker is to feel the power of the sea and sense its unique location, its smell and taste instantly connect you with its island home.

The distillery's newest whisky, launched last year, is Talisker Storm. A highly distinctive whisky created with passion and care, it's an expression that speaks boldly of the dramatic island where its was born.

Tasting notes from Mark Lochhead, Talisker Master Distiller

Range:
Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Make:
Talisker Storm

Strength:
45.8% ABV

Place of Origin:
Carbost

Region:
Isle of Skye

Appearance: Full gold.

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.

Body: Medium.

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.

 

 

Welcome to Skye

Here the stark rise of the jagged Cuillin ridge drops to the gentle whist of a soft sand beach. Inlets, bays and islands create a complex lacework pattern with the sea. Tiny villages and historic keeps are familiar and fascinating. A place where time means nothing, and beneath every footstep lies 500 million years of history.

Discovering the compelling past, the vibrant future and through the essence of this remarkable land, capture memories to live with you forever. Unforgettable.

The influence of the sea is never very far away, wind-ravaged sea cliffs form dramatic backdrops to storm-lashed beaches.
