Proof66 Notes

The Talisker Storm single malt scotch was first released in 2013 and meant to be a robust whisky with "maritime notes." It is is a blend of different aged malts from Talisker given an additional marriage in "carefully rejuvenated casks" (what "rejuvenated" means in this context, we're not sure).

Talisker Distillery has the distinction of being the only distillery operating on the famous Isle of Skye. It was founded in 1830 by Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill near the springs of Cnoc nan Speirag, which source they still use today along with a traditional peat smoke drying with Glen Ord malt.

What a great scotch! Not loving huge peat reek but dearly loving the sweeter flavors of malted barley that finish clean and nice, this one's a complete triumph. Full of flavor; a touch of smoke; just a bit sweet... it has everything I'm looking for. After being somewhat confounded by other temperamental single malts that I'm supposed to like (according to the critics) but don't quite thoroughly enjoy, this one I thoroughly enjoy!

Quite a nice twist on an Islay style single malt. The peat is still upfront but unlike Laphroaig there is a briny sweetness. Not quite as bold on entry and some fruit early in the finish. Surprisingly smooth at almost 46%. Water mellows the peat smoke quite a bit and brings out a softer very balanced flavor.

I haven't done a side by side with anything else in their range, but I'm reminded of the delightful 18 year when tasting this one; it's a little less aggressive and shares a similar richness. It's really a mouthwatering malt. It has an enhanced Talisker brine character, malty sweetness, plenty of peaty smoke, and a thick mouthfeel. If this is a limited edition I think I need to buy a couple more bottles to tuck away.

Dude, I'm very uncomfortable paying $70 for a bottle of scotch. But your review persuaded me when you compared it to the 18yr (at a considerably lower price compared to the 18yr). And I loved it. Thanks!
