Nice balance of rich taste, smoke and smoothness

Nice balance of rich taste, smoke and smoothness
solid dram but too smoky for me
one of my favourite smelling whiskeys, great balance of flavours with the perfect amount of peat for me
Only for true lovers of smokey whiskey. very good.
smokey, briney on nose, peppery, slightly oily on finish, just the right amount of peat, great with a peppery t bone steak straight off the bbq on a cold winters evening!!🙂
Quite a nice scotch but too much smoke flavour for me to have more then one glass at a time.
después de una jornada agotadora un whisky ahumado.
after a grueling day a smoky whiskey.
smoky and clean palate
a lot, but still a controlled amount of peat, peppery spice, slight saltiness reminding me of the sea, sweetness from honey and tobacco
Islay-light from the Isle of Skye
Salt is evident, some smokiness. overall a pretty ordinary taste. not that it's bad though
Nose: peat, dry, salt
Palette: smooth, pepper, peat, toffee,
Finish: little smoke that ends with pepper
Quite nicely balanced and without the abrasive edge common for Talisker. Strong smoke & coastal character as you would expect with oats and a hint of apples. Finish is long and developing. Favourite Talisker I have tried so far.
Waft of smoke and coastal brine. Quite fragrant, feint apples, pears and hay.
Initially strong smoke & peat developing into pepper. As the palate settles an oaty malt core sets in, with very subtle hints of pip fruits.
Long smokey char, malt, cracked pepper.
Not my cup of whisky. Too smoky and not very rich in other flavors (when I first tried, maybe I should try again later)
Smooth and simple. Medium smoke. Saltiness. Not a bad dram. But not interesting neither. The best Talisker Ive tasted. Although I have yet to try the 18 yo.
Smoke tour. Very strong.
Yes! Love the peppery smoke hit this gives!
peat, smoke, salt, pepper-y
very smokey, yet smooth
Peat and salt and smoke, with less of a burn than expected
quite peaty, smokey and marine whisky
fresh apple smoke damp earth
complex smoky peaty fruity apple apricot chocolate pepper and a little salty
sweet and malty longue
I imagine being on a sailboat with plenty of time ahead of me. Definitely reminiscent of the sea and oak barrels.
Unikatowo smakująca whisky. Określenie, że ,,smakuje jak morze" jest w tym przypadku bardzo trafione. Jest torfowa, jest dymna i co więcej słonawa. Posiada również nutę suszonych owoców w tle. Tekstura oleista, pomimo tego, że whisky ma 45,8% alkoholu. Wyśmienita, choć nie dla wszystkich.
Unique tasting whisky. ,,Sea like" is good term in this case. It' s peaty, it's smoky and what's more - salty. Also has some dried fruits note in the background. Texture is oily even though the ABV is 45,8%. Excellent but not for everyone.

Tastes like the sea. Great whisky.
Really nice Whisky.
Friendly in the beginning, but after the sip the peaty smoke and a peppery heat show up. Interesting journey
Smokey en subtle. Keeps surprising me
not in your face.
My first smoky scotch. A mind-blowing experience that’s expanded my idea of what a scotch can taste like.
found this better than the storm not as in your face..got as sample..would pay the extra money over the storm version..
Don't usually care for the peaty scotches but this is good. Vanilla undertones with a peppery finish
Peat, vanilla undertones, salty?, I imagine a beach covered in peat
A bit hot, light peat, pepper, complex under the peat
straw, peaty, finish falls short, a summer scotch
Wonderful Salty Whisky with slight smoky note
Salty, lemony, slightly smoky
sweet dried fruits, warm, pepper explosion
pepper, sweet, licorice
Smokey and a good amount of peat makes this an ideal whisky for an open fire by the sea side.
Maritimer Charakter, Rauch gut eingebunden, etwas kurz im Abgang.
Strong and enticing nose of peat and smoke, noticeable from a distance away. Taste is an explosion of sweet smoke and peat, slowly settling down to a warm fire. Powerful flavor, though not a terribly long finish.
smells like salty kelp. spicy, fiery, short finish. don't like the anise flavor in it
Not so peated but a dam good whisky
smells like salty kelp, spicy, fiery
Very powerful and rich for a 10 y/o. Chili catch definitely there. Just a pity that it's colour added...
Peaty, salty, with a fresh breeze and notes of seaweed. Vanilla, pepper, lemongras, cloves.
Nutmeg, oranges, chocolate, salt caramel.
Long spicy finish. Really bites the tongue.
Runder Whisky mit sehr aromatischem Rauch (genau das Gegenteil zu Lagavulin) und einer frische wie Zitrusgras mit einer Pfeffrigkeit.
Feuchte Rauchigkeit verfliegt in Kürze. Danach angenehme Frische, vielleicht Zitrone auf einem süßen Honig-Bouquet.
Geringe Rauchigkeit mit einer guten Schärfe und Wüzigkeit wie Pfeffer.
Dezente Würze des Fasses, trocken. Mittlerer Abgang. Das Aroma der Küste welgt sich im Mund.
salzig, torfig mit leicht malziger süße. Der Geruch versetzt mich in Gedanken sofort auf ein Piratenschiff.
Peaty, smokey and fruity with the peppery finish. It's one of my favourites.
Smooth like a silent ocean. Lots of salt and rich in flavour, yet soft and just rolls off the tongue.
so much past. chocolate. camphor. just a hint of peppermint.
If looking for a peaty profile, best bang for the buck
Beetje rokerig, nice
Very enjoyable...brine and peat...with a great heat
Peat level is immense. It lasts long in your throat, keeps you warm and it is strong!
if I'm looking for a little smoke, this is my go to.
Some peat, smoke and brine that's balanced with fruit and pepper. I really like this one.
just the right peat and smoke , salt. good abv
The first glass was really something else. It doesn't get worse with the second, you just get the hang of it.
stevige whisky met een zeer aanwezige peat smaak (NIET geschikt voor beginners)
A whisky that should be in everyone's collection. Fantastic quality for the price.
not as mellow as the Lagavulin 16, as expected. strong smoky peat taste with stronger finish
My favourite so far
mild and a bit salty - good if want more than one ;-)
Het instap model voor Talisker
pepper, sharp clove, in the background some smoke and even further away some honey and vanilla.
sweet arrival, black pepper, smoke, meaty/beafy
a bit short lived, smokey and dry
Talisker 10 was one of the brands that got me interested in whisky over a decade ago. The first dram after opening the bottle was really good and reminded me why I liked this whisky so much in the past. However, after that first really good dram, the intensity and flavour started fading and failing as I tasted more over the following weeks. At this moment (2/3 of the bottle gone) it tastes somewhat generic and a bit thin/watery. Pity! Still decent, but not as good as it should/could be... 81 - 82 points
Good tasteful smokey malt witj hints of spices (salts)
Smoke, salt, twang. This golden brown liquid has it all. Very drinkable.
Definitely one of my favourites, bottle after bottle. Can never get tired of its bold, rich taste; in particular I love its marine feeling and the spicy, pepper finish.
I hope it won't be discontinued after the introduction of "Skye"; perfectly fits my taste, never disappointing.
Nice budget friendly whisky.
love the nose, strong, peaty but not offensively. can smell the dark fruit. pepper taste, spicy, long finish, warming. thick oily salty. just lots of spice. very flavorful but not my favorite flavors I'm not quite ready to appreciate this.
Very peaty on the nose. Earthy, very peppery on the palate. The taste is instant and warm with a long strong smoky finish
Slightly medicinal and overly peaty.
starts with peach and orange. growing salty taste. light smoke.
zee zout medicinaal lekkah
This has a soft nose a bit salty and peppered. In the mouth it you get a lot of pepper in the front with salt water and some citrus flavours. If you swill it around it almost sterilizes the inside of your mouth and you get a massive burst of pepper spice.
light body, very peaty and medicinal
beautiful peat aroma, then goes into smoke. spicy to start, the opens out with peat, smoke and lots of pepper! a little salty on the tongue and more pepper and spice to finish. long lasting finish on this with a nice oily mouthfeel. delicious!!!
Balanced, with long lasting peated smoke
Smarts off with a nice and salty spicy kick followed by a smokey peat with a slight medicinal finish.
This is the one which I will always taste again.....
A nice whisky for those who are not known with peat and sea. But for the lovers of that, this one is slight to light.
peat and sea are there but somewhere in the back.
The nose is slight salty and slight peaty with hints of leather and sweet fruits.
The palet is flat but comes to life after inhaling some oxygen over the fluid.
Hold the sip for a while, after that a peppery surprise awaits you with a touch of sweet leather.
Not a bad whisky, but he feels a bit like the little sister of the big brothers at Islay.
a bit rough near the end, but otherwise quite round for the strong flavours. not my favourite
Smoke, salt, a bit medicinal.. what you expect. Not bad but not my fav peat whisky.
Earthy peat, but not excessively smoky. After the peat, comes the mild sweetness with honey and toffee. No alcohol burn, despite the high ABV.
mijn grote betaalbare favoriet. Ik wil er altijd een flesje van in huis hebben.
Very good without any real extreme flavors overpowering the balance.
smoke...a little salt and pepper and a smooth finish. this spicy talisker must be one of my favorites.
lekker, maar lagavulin is lekkerder
Te scherpe afdronk. Geen blijvertje
angehnem rauchig mit einer malz und Honig süße
Very nice Islands whisky, not Talisker's best, but very enjoyable.
Lovely smooth dram. Great balance of sweetness and smokiness with a little salt. Will buy again!
un grand classique, avec un bon rapport qualité prix.
Just the perfect balance, smokey, silty, island, but not too overwhelming.
A smoky whisky with salt, pepper and perhaps some fruit in it. I like it!
smoke and peat in a nice balance
Smokyness, peatyness and oakiness well balanced in this fine piece of single malt.
Really good dram price quality wise. Peaty, iodine, salt but not too much smoke. Lovely
sweet, peat, alcohol, sturdy nice
iodine, spice, turf, peat but not too much. Wonderful dram. Sherry is apparent which I don't like too much.
medium not to smokey. bit of peat and sherry
peated like i need it
Very fine, smooth, not that much of smoke, very good balanced favour.
Not my taste
Smokey and medicinal, with a sweet and balanced finish, Talisker is another bottle that's always featured in my collection.
lekker maar de turf proef ik bijna niet
Salty start, ending with moderate smoke.
A little to salty
Pear, smoke and sea salt
Peat and salt
A good expression of Ilse Scotch, but I much prefer Ilse of Islay over Ilse of Sky
Heerlijk rokerig, maar niet te erg. Verder erg toegankelijk. Heb je nog nooit whiskey gedronken, begin niet met deze.
zachte smaak met een rokerige nasmaak
적당한 피트향 부드럽게 모아지는 알콜향이 매력적임 미드와 향긋한 피니쉬가 매력적
bon whisky tourbé
very good, smoky but not too heavy. ideal balance
