Whisky Reviews for Talisker Skye

6 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 77.80 points

  1. schengel10 scored this whisky 67 points Connoisseur

    At best, "average" - is that really from the great Talisker distillery?
    • Nose
      subtle nose: low smoke, citrus, orange, vanilla; [G] [A]
    • Taste
      first soft, mild and sweet, caramel, increasingly comes seasoning, oak, pepper; noticeable alcohol; obviously young!
    • Finish
      medium-length, sweet and spicy finish, which abruptly dies away; slightly alcoholic!

  2. RichardMayston scored this whisky 56 points Expert Senior

    Quite drinkable, but I wouldn't buy it again. 
    • Nose
      Weak smoke, Light, maritime, bit of rotting fruit, not the best
    • Taste
      Bit weak, round soft, slight peat. Quite sweet. It's like it is toned down sweetened 10yo to make it more novice friendly. Good that it is a strong abv. 
    • Finish
      Slightly bitter

  6. peatbogger scored this whisky 81 points Specialist

    • Nose
      Peat, fresh fruit, a little vanilla, bread crumbs.

      A little light for a Talisker.
    • Taste
      "Surface" peat, it's there but not very prominent.

      Slightly salty. Fresh garden fruits, apples and pears.
    • Finish
      Medium. There's some spicyness evolving, warming, and the peat re-emerge.
