TALISKER STORM SINGLE MALT SCOTCH WHISKY
Produced at the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made by the sea since 1830, with its smell and taste instantly connecting you to its rugged maritime home. Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Talisker Storm is a dark, smoky, more brooding member of the Talisker family, with notes of wood, brine and spice that puts you right at the heart of a storm at sea. Talisker Storm is a perfect gift for adorers of Talisker, looking to explore depth of smoky, spicy quality.

APPEARANCE : Full gold.
BODY : Medium.
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.
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.
