  1. Dionysus scored this whisky 87 points Expert Senior

    The mother of all classics in a new jacket.
    But still just as tasty, the traditional pepper and maritime flavors.
    It is the whisky that adorns almost every menu, but it is and remains a topper.

  2. YD84 scored this whisky 88 points Expert Senior

    Fishy, salty, briny, mineralic, malty. A clear savoury lick. Black pepper. Red chillies. Caramel. Barley sugar. Chocolate. Soft smoke. Then you add water and fruits are revealed. Pears, oranges and sour apples. Some tropical fruits too. Distinctive and delicious.

    Still very good value for your money!!!

      Ok, seems they only changed the lable. Same profile as I remembered it, a bit youngish but it has a solid backbone of smoke, sea water, sea breeze and iodine. Pepper, of course, leather, a drop of linseed oil.
    • Taste
      88 88
      Ok, the palate has always been better than the nose and this batch does not make a difference.
      Nice, medium sweet and salty arrival and then the pepper which has always been most prominent in the 10 yo (imho)
      The leathery notes are stronger on the palate and there is also a hint of salted caramel.
    • Finish
      88 88
      Smoky, leathery, a bit dry perhaps.

  5. KB201 scored this whisky 87 points Connoisseur

    The veteran of the Talisker family has been distilled in the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye since 1830 and matured in American oak barrels for 10 years. The first of the two distillation phases gives the single malt its unique spicy complexity and the unmistakable peppery notes.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Peat smoke, seawater saltiness, a lemony sweetness.
    • Taste
      87 87
      Dried fruit sweetness, with warming smoke and gestural malt flavors, a peppery explosion on the palate.
    • Finish
      87 87
      Powerful, long, warming peppery finish.

    New version of Talisker 10 is not worse then its ancestor. Still marine, rich and tasty!

  7. WhiskeyMaster scored this whisky 85 points Member Senior

    The Talisker 10-YO remains one of the decent classics and the 2021 edition still lives up to the name. With it's profound Gold Amber Color, notes of seaside, leather, pepper and smoke it can be easily distinguished.

    Adding a few drops of water opens up more of the smokiness of this dram on the Nose reminding of Newly Lit Charcoal.
    • Nose
      86 86
      Seaside Spray, Dried Leather, Peppercorn, Light Smoke, Coffee Caramel.
      When going deeper into the scent hints of Sour Apple and Sour Cherries can be observed.
    • Taste
      84 84
      Sweet with a touch of brine, Light Smoke, Dried Leather and Chilies.
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium Dry Sweet finish with a medium/long lingering sweetness in mouth. Hints of Earthy Clay afterwards.
