  1. MADKARMA scored this whisky 69 points Newbie

    Everything I want from a talisker, just less of it. Like a poorly watered down version of a good talisker.

  3. DistiLesha scored this whisky 84 points Expert Senior

    A very good sample of whisky, maybe I got a good batch from good barrels, I definitely do not have 2021, maybe 2018.
    A complex, full-bodied and not at all aggressive whisky.
    Fruit abundance and good balance with smoke. However, it is quite simple and does not evolve.

    • Nose
      Much more saturated than 57.
      Very fruity and honey, sweetness can be heard immediately in the aroma, malt extact, light subtle smoke, lime peel
    • Taste
      On the palate, the subtle smokiness from the aroma is already fully felt, the tones of malt extract, the sweetness is really decent (8 out of 10), rich, oily and full-bodied, yellow-red fruits
    • Finish
      Moderately dry, tannins and light oak bitterness, bready sourness

  4. KB201 did not rate this whisky Connoisseur

    Talisker Skye is the Isle of Skye's oldest distillery's ode to its contrasting landscape. Since 2015, the whisky has been produced directly on the rough sea and matured in American refill and toasted oak casks, with a slightly larger proportion of toasted casks. This gives the single malt the maritime-smoky note to get the feeling of spending a day on the coast of the Isle of Skye.

      Dark fruits appear surprisingly. Blueberries and blueberries. In addition, a typical Talisker - salt, caramel, spices, pepper, salty caramel, sea.
