Talisker Storm was created as a no age statement whisky. It is matured in specifically selected refill and toasted American oak casks thus has some smokier depth and complexity.
Nose: Quite creamy with banana angel delight, Window putty, a 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 the smokiest whisky to be produced on the Isle of Skye.
Talisker Storm is a good single malt for an Old Fashioned cocktail.
