Talisker Scotch Single Malt Storm

Talisker Scotch Single Malt Storm 750ML      
Sku: 20491

Tasting notes
Nose: At first restrained yet spicy, with a hint of struck matches; fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm to reveal a honeyed sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit. Eventually a little well integrated mellow smoke drifts across the scene as a wild sea turns up briny, fresh clean notes, and an oily explosion of pepper.

Body: Medium.

Palate: At first sweetly mellow and rich in the mouth then quickly very spicy and increasingly stormy as the Talisker heat comes through. Itís as if the pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins hands with a deep nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The flavour is elegantly drawn out with a good balance between sweetness, smoke and salt, which is all the more evident when a little water is added.

Finish: Clean and of medium length, warming, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which late peaty burnt embers can be found.

Rating
 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 95 points (Apr 2014)
Intense smokiness on the nose with warm baking spices underneath. Sweet and woodsy on the palate with tons of campfire smoke and spice, flavors of charred wood and cedar integrate into the smooth leathery texture. Powerful and elegant.

Technical notes
45.8% Alcohol

Recipe
Talisker Storm is best enjoyed neat or with a few drops of distilled water to unlock the elegant balance of sweetness, smoke and salt evident through the warm finish.
