  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.

  3. Dre73 scored this whisky 85 points Connoisseur

    Simply a good one, one of the best standard 'starter' whisky's in my opinion.
    • Nose
      Salty, sea breeze, some rubber, tobacco, slightly peat, spicy, pepper. And fruity, apples, and caramel.
    • Taste
      Slightly peaty, salty, peppers. Ash. Some red fruits, full body.
    • Finish
      Pepper, warming and pretty long, some fruits and spices left.

  10. Calmar scored this whisky 88 points Connoisseur

    Well, if you do not compare with the previous version, then everything is very good, all the characteristic components, balance, pitches, everything in its place, but in comparison with its predecessor looks more stark and simpler. It seems that with increasing volumes of release and the number of releases, the quality of the source material has fallen on average and this release is an attempt to withstand the brand under new conditions. It turned out approximately as if trying to "improve" a mediocre audio recording with an equalizer shift in all bands.
    • Nose
      Fresh, open, smoke-peat with fruit and citrus tones, raw coals of a bonfire, notes of smoked meat, new leather goods, light mineral-lemonade motives in the background, ashes.
    • Taste
      Coal, ash, dry peat, charred wood, peppery wave, light sweetness.
    • Finish
      Spicy-peat, peppery, dry, burnt biscuits, stout.
