Talisker Scotch Single Malt Storm

Talisker Scotch Single Malt Storm 750ML        
Sku: 20491

Tasting notes
Nose: At first restrained yet spicy, with a hint ofstruck 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.

Diageo has introduced this new no age statement variant of Talisker single malt. The name reflects the distiller’s aspiration to enhance the maritime notes in this expression. Refill and rejuvenated casks have both contributed to its maturation. The nose is youthful but rounded, with brine, burning wood embers, vanilla, and honey. Sweet and spicy on the palate, with cranberries and black currants, while peat smoke is always present, plus black pepper. The finish lingers, with walnuts and fruity peat.

Golden hay-like/wheat field color. Smells strongly and pleasantly of sea salt, seaweed, smoked fish, campfire, malt. Taste profile features sturdy, oily flavors of palm oil, honey wheat bread, black pepper, Brazil nut, dried apricot. Big hearted finish is zesty, spirity, sublime.

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.
