General description

One of my favorite Islay whiskys, quite strong flavours but still easily approachable also for beginners.

Aroma: Peaty with slight scent of oily petrol. Hints of spice and fruits.
Taste: Peaty, salty and spicy, stronger than the aroma first gives away.
Finish: Long finish, hint of petrol and salt. Also notes of dark chocolate and leather.

This likely remains one cornerstone of my collection. Overall enjoyable salty, maritime feeling.

I have a soft spot for this whisky as it was the one that introduced me to the world of single malt whisky back in 1992 while working at Faslane. On my last night there I decided to try all the single malts the hotel had. I reached Talisker 10yo and stopped dead. What a wonderful flavour! The sea first of all, smoke hit me next, but then I got a loooong finish of a peppery hit. I was hooked! I've tried hundreds of single malts since, some better, some a lot worse, but that first taste is ingrained in my memory.

I always had it in my head that Talisker was a very peaty, very tcp tasting whisky. However, this 10 year old is a very well balanced, very smooth, very subtle tasting malt. It has the peat and smoke for sure but these are very subtle and in no way overpowering. They are part of an overall sweet, toffee and spicy taste together mixed in with gentle notes of peat and smoke. Overall a very well balanced, mellow whisky, gently warming with a long lingering aftertaste of smoke but only lightly so.

General description

Talisker 10 from isle of Skye has nose like dram from Islay, that familiar peaty smoke. However, the palate is quite different and unique. I can see how this can be love-it or hate-it, as the palate leads w bit of bitterness and sourness followed by salty peat. Sweetness is not as apparent as Ardbeg 10 or Laphroiag QC, thus not as approachable. Long smoky finish. It may not be love at first, but one gets craving to taste it again later.

A brief whiff of orange preceeds maritime saltiness reminiscent of seaspray on granite with soft hints of smoke resting underneath everything. Lightly sugared oat porridge gradually emerges. Taste of fruit persists on the palate, blending with light salinity and mouth-numbing iodine and smoke flavours that gradually take over the entire palate before lingering in the aftertaste for long minutes

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.

Palate

Initially strong smoke & peat developing into pepper. As the palate settles an oaty malt core sets in, with very subtle hints of pip fruits.

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.

Smokey and a good amount of peat makes this an ideal whisky for an open fire by the sea side.

General description

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.

General description

Very powerful and rich for a 10 y/o. Chili catch definitely there. Just a pity that it's colour added...

Nose

Peaty, salty, with a fresh breeze and notes of seaweed. Vanilla, pepper, lemongras, cloves.

Palate

Nutmeg, oranges, chocolate, salt caramel.

Finish

Long spicy finish. Really bites the tongue.

General description

Runder Whisky mit sehr aromatischem Rauch (genau das Gegenteil zu Lagavulin) und einer frische wie Zitrusgras mit einer Pfeffrigkeit.

Nose

Feuchte Rauchigkeit verfliegt in Kürze. Danach angenehme Frische, vielleicht Zitrone auf einem süßen Honig-Bouquet.

Palate

Geringe Rauchigkeit mit einer guten Schärfe und Wüzigkeit wie Pfeffer.

Finish

Dezente Würze des Fasses, trocken. Mittlerer Abgang. Das Aroma der Küste welgt sich im Mund.

Comments

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

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.

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.

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.

80 points.
