  2. Slàinte Mhath scored this whisky 87 points Administrator

    Famous for its 'chili catch', Talisker 10 from the Isle of Skye is said to be 'made by the sea' - a suitable analogy. Its mineral, phenolic nose reminds of fresh, salty seawater with iodine and seaweed. A light sweetness of citrus fruits combines with restrained peatiness. The arrival is strong with a rich note of malted barley and dried fruits, leaving a peppery chili burn on the palate. A real 'afterburner' that finishes pleasantly warming, briny and spicy. The only downside is the excessive addition of artificial colorant (E150a), combined with heavy chill-filtration.

  6. Fuchur scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    A typical Talisker. Smokey and surprisingly complex for its age of 10 years. Differs from batch to batch but in a whole it's a consistent and solid quality Scotch. Interesting enough to buy again and make the 10yo a standard in my bar.
    • Nose
      86 86
      First: Smoke (peat) but not a overwhelming "wall" of it.
      Then: Spices esp. pepper, salt, nuts, some citric fruits which I can't define and wood
      Overall "edgy"
    • Taste
      86 86
      First: Some more smoke and spices, oak
      Then: Young fruits (green apple), caramel and malt
    • Finish
      85 85
      Medium to long finish, the peat comes back.
      Spices and less pepper than before
      All in all dry but warming.

    Good peaty whisky to drink.
    • Nose
      Peat (not to much), Caramel
    • Taste
      The peat gives the whisky the power that it needs.

  9. Collegiate scored this whisky 86 points Expert Junior

    Enjoyable and good at what it does, if but a bit one-dimensional. It doesn't get any more peppery than this. The peat is active too, perhaps more so than when I had it 4 years ago. But frankly I don't get a while lot else out of it. This makes for a great daily drinker if you can get it cheaply as it is in some markets. However I wouldn't go into this expecting lots of complexity.
