Whisky Reviews for Talisker Skye

4 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.76 points

  1. lachaineduwhisky did not rate this whisky Expert Senior

    I will not make the old grumpy who compares this Skye to the old 10 years old. Yes, it's much more accessible, almost sweet, compared to the austerity of its predecessor. Some will say sweetened. But the identity persists - I recognized Talisker blindly. And I still say that for thirty euros, it remains a good entry level.
    Enthusiasm Nose 4/5 Mouth and finish 3/5 Whisky n ° 1776
    • Nose
      On the nose, Talisker's smoke and pepper identity is palpable immediately, but quickly comes adorned with fresh and quite generous fruits (apricot, peach ...). With a little water, it offers a certain minerality and a little menthol
    • Taste
      We find its marks in the mouth but with a youth perceptible by the alcoholic integration more than perfectible. The whole remains nevertheless very drinkable.
    • Finish
      In the line of the mouth.

  2. lincolnimp scored this whisky 74 points Connoisseur

    This is a peat driven  for sure but not a patch on the old 10 year offerings (need to try this against a current 10 year)
    • Nose
      Smells like creosote and toffee mixed together, quite a lot of peat .    Dark, rich fruit cake, malt loaf and hints of prune juice, more brine and peat than fruit. 
    • Taste
       Creamy mouthfeel, some bitterness and more peat mixed in with dark toffee. There is a little bitter plum and fig, sour apple but the peat takes centre stage along with slightly bitter orange marmalade (dark marmalde) 
    • Finish
       Not the longest, slightly peppery and sweet smokiness on the finish.

  3. coldsun scored this whisky 83 points Member Senior

    Very tasty. Really island with salt and iodine notes. Also has elements of light peat smoke, malt and raisins. A little bit spicy and has long and stable warming finish.

  4. wisekycourse scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    On the nose, smoke, ashes, fine peat and fruits on prunes!

    In the mouth, sugar (caramel), fruits still cooked and peat more present

    a little salt and cold ashes again!

    In the final, it's quite short, and on the same aromas!

    A dram always entertaining, with its more (fruity peat other than the Islay), but also its less with a short length!
    • Nose
      prune, a little smoke, a lot of iodine, the marine side that comes out, dusty, a little vegetal and back sodden dried fruit.
