Talisker Storm Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Enjoyed this, though it does comes off a little harsh, which can perhaps be attributed to its youth. A NAS, but as I understand, the blend is at least as old as the standard 10 year old. It definitely has a pretty similar profile - pepper, brine, peat smoke, and citrus. Would be good to taste them side-by-side given the general consensus that the Storm's essentially the 10 taken up a notch. There's a really "sweet" inner core that pushes through to peaty, somewhat-medicinal finish. Medium length. Really liking this profile (particularly the saline character) so I'm definitely going to be checking out the rest of the range. — 4 months ago

@Severn Goodwin Haha. I can see that. The older bottlings not worth the premium?

@Aaron Tan They certainly are, but this particular bottle (Storm) does showcase their style with much greater affordability.

@Severn Goodwin Great to know. Very keen to try more bottlings and when possible, aged examples... Particular the precursor to the 10.

Very peaty color. Sharp to the nose. Sharp, stingy and mineral flavor with a long finish. Not for the weak of heart and fantastic! — 3 years ago

Caol Ila

Aged 12 Years Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky

The mildest of the Diageo peated whiskies I've had so far. Definitely not the campfire peat monsters of Ardbeg, or the distinct maritime peat of Talisker, or the more medicinal peat of Lagavulin... The peat here comes off as sweet and aromatic, almost like incense. The body seems to be the lightest of the lot too (comparing apples and apples), although it's hard to say without seeing them all next to each other (definitely lighter than the Ardberg and even Glen Elgin here). Palate flavours are subtle in the Caol Ila, but citrus notes come through clearly. Finishes a touch short with a sort of grassy earthy quality that I quite enjoy. Not a blockbuster whisky, yet I find it quite drinkable.

NB: Better mixed 1:1 with the Ardbeg Wee Beastie. Seems to balance out the extreme smoke of the Ardberg, drawing out lovely saline notes.

My favorite Talisker, when you just disregard the cost factor all together.
A nice Fall evening, relaxing by the chimnea.
Notes TBD.

Yes, this is only the 3rd dram we ever pulled off this bottle... Since we acquired over a decade ago.
