"...More intense and smoky, with enhanced and vibrant maritime notes, smoothly balanced with Talisker’s signature hot sweetness..."
“We wanted to focus on distillery character… we sought out some great mature Talisker [from] carefully rejuvenated casks, and brought that together with some very fresh distillery character preserved by maturation in refill casks.”
Master Blender, Jim Beveridge
Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points - Golden hay-like/wheat field color. Smells strongly and pleasantly of sea salt, seaweed, smoked fish, campfire, malt. Taste profile features sturdy, oily flavors of palm oil, honey wheat bread, black pepper, Brazil nut, dried apricot. Big hearted finish is zesty, spirity, sublime. (Mar 2015)
Talisker Storm is a new no age statement whisky released at the beginning of 2013. It offers up plenty of distillery character alongside some smokier depth and complexity.
