Whisky Reviews for Talisker Skye

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.86 points

  1. Tom na Gruagaich scored this whisky 80 points Connoisseur

    In fact, Talisker, the nose is still a bit the weak point, the mouth and the finish are neither complex nor particularly spectacular, but more intense than expected and, above all, delicious. A good side drinker, with Talisker kick. With the small price difference to the 10th one must ask oneself, why not buy this same ...
    • Nose
      very slightly discreet, slightly smoky, slightly salty. Hints of Talisker, slightly sweetish fruity, yoghurt, youthful, some cardboard. Not unpleasant, but nothing more.
    • Taste
      slightly smoky, tart, slightly salty more intense than expected, but also youthful notes are recognizable.
    • Finish
      Mint, some pepper, fresh, peat, getting a little bitter. Towards the end, more Junged.

  3. Kaleva scored this whisky 82 points Expert Senior

    Young and mild Talisker. The smokiness here is rather weak and overall balance is not on the top. While the nose and the palate are not bad, the finish is the weakest place: it’s quite oaky with long bitter aftertaste. Well, this NAS is OK but just OK.
    • Nose
      Light smoke, butter, mashed apples, caramel, coastal notes, light minerality (dusty and earthy tones), vanilla, nutmeg, oak
    • Taste
      Sweet, peppery, strawberry marmalade, yellow apples and banana touch, maritime notes (brine and kelp), minerality, oak at the end
    • Finish
      Medium-long, smoky, oaky (slightly bitter), getting dry slowly, ashy aftertaste

  4. Martin1965 scored this whisky 83 points Expert Senior

    • Nose
      Smoke, pepper, earthy, oranges,
    • Taste
      Smoke, pepper, salt, seasoning, caramel with honey
    • Finish
      Short to medium

      More smoke and much less oak than the 10 year old.
      Well done for a NAS whisky.

    A decent dram - like a silent fart it suddenly assails you, though in a pleasant way.
    • Nose
      It is difficult to discern any particular aroma - I almost inhaled it but could detect little.
    • Taste
      A warming mouth feel with some medicinal notes.
    • Finish
      Lingering and tingling pleasantly.
