Color
Deep copper
Nose

Intense, peaty, smoky, citrusy, bonfire - a little bit Ardbeg-like - really not bad

Taste

Oily, rather sweet, peat, smoke, tobacco, more citrus fruits, cooked oranges - very good

Finish

Medium long, warm

Comments

Really drinkable and enjoyable - could be a bit more punchy but is sufficient for a daily dram - anyway I like this one

On the one hand Talisker Dark Storm is packed full of flavours. On the other, those flavours are not necessarily complex nor completely integrated. That said, Talisker Dark Storm is very reasonable priced and comes in litre bottles. Full Review:

Color
Chestnutoloroso sherry
Nose
Sweet sherried smoke. Dark fruits, dried fruits, orange, sherry, some scones.

Taste

BBQ, pepper, chili, oranges, dark chocolate.

Finish

Long. Chili, dark chocolate, plums, salt.

Comments
Some similarities to the DE from Talisker. Quite a good dram but not as fruity as the DEs used to be.
Concerning price/performance ratio: 8/10

Color
Burnished
Nose

dark fruits, orange,  yeast, smoke, peat, vanilla, brown sugar, salt, wax?

Taste

sugar syrup, woodsy, citrus, light to dark fruits, orange, smoke

Finish

short, peppers, spices, red wood, spicy dry light sweetness at the back with dark fruits and a touch of cream

Comments

like a peated version of 90’s jw black with less grain (despite being a 45.8% single malt, feels like a 40% blend)
