Aroma - Initial brine, but not as abrupt as the 10 Year Old, quite creamy by comparison. Banana. Banana angel delight? Window putty, hint of sticking plasters and barbecues, citrus. White pepper develops towards the bottom of the glass.
Palate - Thick and mouth-coating with wood smoke, brine, some tin and chilli heat too.
Finish - Red chilli peppers and oak dryness with a hint of embers.
Overall- A welcome addition to the Talisker range, and probably he smokiest whisky to be produced on the Isle of Skye.
Talisker Storm was released in early 2013 as a no age statement whisky, which was matured in specifically selected refill and toasted American oak casks. An intense and vibrant dram, the Storm offers up plenty of distillery character alongside some smokier depth and complexity.
With a classic Talisker profile, a depth of beautiful flavours and a very reasonable price point, this is an ideal single malt for those thinking of exploring the island whisky category. If you're looking for a cocktail serving, this Scotch is simply begging to used in a Old Fashioned - now where you could find a recipe for one of those...
