lekkere Whisky voor een goede prijs
Damn, this is yummy
taste of smoke,sea
Peat, sea salt, pepper, a bit alcoholic on the palate at least at first
Sea salt, campfire smoke, ripe fruits and a hint of tobacco. Impresses like a thousand-dollar suit. This will be a fixture in my Scotch library from now on.
I have to ne honest: I hate the smell of it. To me it smells like a dead fish in a pharmacy.
But i love the taste. i can't add anything which hasn't been written before except: Go get yourself a Miso-soup to this Whisky. Trust me: You'll love it!
ein muss in jeder Bar
Light chimney smoke, peat. Chilli on the tounge. Really nice.
Smoky. Sour. Syrup sweet. Rubber finish. A little grassy. Not a fan.
Nice smokey flavor, with a tone of pepper and a salty aftertaste.
Solid whisky to have in your cabinet and an ideal stepping stone to ease someone into Islay I pressume
there is smoke, sea, apple, citrus
a somewhat thick mouthfeel. peat, pepper and salt at first. But it turns to a pepper, honey and some citrus
Sweetness of honey, the burn of pepper then the bitter of smoke. A hint of pear.
Exactly the right amount of smokiness. sweet and smooth. I love this one
smokey and beautiful
TORFIG, Süß und unangenehm würzig.
Very smoky with a sweet finish
Rokerig. Diep, en vol van smaak maar toch zacht en zoet.
Robust, real smokey, lots of flavour. The colour is quite dark, but that may be because of the added pigment (caramel)...
Compared to the Highland Park 12yo Viking Honour, it is softer and less sharp to the nose. For me, the HP required more time to breathe and a touch of water to remove most of the sharp edge. The Talisker doesn't need this. I like it. But keep in mind that there's a high level of smokeyness to this one.
nice ageing notes
Smell was a little too musky for me and the taste was a little salty. Only had a dram though, might revisit my rating next time.
Moja pierwsza dymna whisky, czuć wędzony zapach, pyszna.
Scent conquers all
nez tourbé. Tourbe bien présente en bouche. Note saline
I definitely get the iodine and the appeal of this whisky, very enjoyable
45.8%abv from Skye
gentle smokey, bonfire on a beach
spice forward, some orqnge, a bit thin
Smokey and smooth.
Well balanced peaty, smoky and sweetness.
El clásico incondicional de la familia Talisker. El compañero perfecto para cuando termina el día, suave, lleno de humo y un resplandor reconfortante.
Humo de turba, toque sal marina, dulzura cítrica.
Dulzura de frutos secos, humo, malta de cebada, cálido y picante.
Cálido y picante en final, con una dulzura.
There are things in the world that we take as benchmarkly good/quality/etc. Now you probably understood , what I’m going to say about Talisker 10. Let me get a little out of our beloved whisky discipline. I love stouts: for me Guinness is the greatest. I love lagers: nothing better for me than Grolsch. And if you have ever met these drinks, it’s nothing difficult to see what they have in common. The manner of taste — it’s plain, it’s straight. And it’s great, as you taste only what is meant to be there. It’s not that easy to accomplish, it’s far more difficult to accept this noble plainness. Let’s get to whisky already.
There is meant to be oak somewhere there? You get it. Subtle and quite intertwining with peat...
Oh yes, did you want to see peat? Enjoy it. It’s just like you’ve made a campfire out of wet oak firewood and peat chunks you found in nearby swamps. Peat is notable, yet not as overwhelming as in AyeSLAY guys.
Do you still remember you are about to drink a fine whisky from islands? Then, please, have a little bit of sea in your glass.
This mixture of oak, peat and iodine on a nose is simple and simply great. Water ruins everything: it brings absolutely unnecessary for this whisky vanilla, which tends to be quite dominant.
Once had a dram, I expected a bit more harshness, keeping in mind 45.8% abv. Thereby, I am quite intrigued by Talisker cask strength or simply higher abv editions. Arrival is slow: only after 4-5 seconds you get spice coming in. And once you swallow, there is a clear taste of sea salt and impression of an ashy peat, which is a little different from what you’ve nosed.
The finish is moderate with a saltiness staying on a tongue for a little time and peat being substituted by noble bitterness that lasts a little longer.
Here is my not unbiased verdict: Talisker 10 is a benchmark whisky made with a great quality, an extreme devotion to the genre and a room to become even better.
Oak, peat, iodine
Black pepper, ashy peat, sea salt
Short salty finish and longer peaty bitterness
Пушек 60% от Айла. Нещо, което намирам във Спейсайд, но не мога да го опрелича. Smoke and Peat - 60% of Islay, Spice than you can feel alot in the finish. Salt, fresh
Iets te rokerig voor mij
Soft smoke on the nose. Sweet caramel and oak with a touch of peat. smooth finish.

verry food whisky
long smokey, peaty without a little hint of tobacco
Phenolic nose, strong character, little smoky on the finish. Great

Много йода, много соли, резкий запах, на конце много перца, классная вещь, стоит своих денег, это море, это Талискер
As an expression of Island style whisky, this is probably best described as a ”ferocious storm that shipwrecks sailors”. Definitely not boring. Definitely not for beginners.
Peat. Sharp phenols. Rotting seaweed and brine. Toffee. Malt
Peat is better than the nose suggests. An earthy/ medicinal type of peat rather than the meaty type.
Malt. Toffee. Bitter. Rough. Engine oil.
Much smoother. Medicinal peat < Earthy peat Fairly oily. Malty. Toffee. White pepper
Medium with phenols and engine oil lingering most!
Longer. More oily and luxurious, but still way off the mark given the price and prestige of this “classic malt”
Zu Beginn Räucherschinken! Würzig, leichte bis mittlere Rauchstärke, die den Whisky trägt. Mit der Zeit und der Oxidation nimmt der Rauch ab und eine angenehme würze mit Pfeffer/Chili bleibt.
Für das Geld eine absolute Kaufempfehlung!
The nose is mild motor oil; earthy, boggy moss. Some plastic and fusel burn. Just a hint of band-aid.
The peat breaks through in the initial taste, where it joins a white pepper and shaker salt combo; you can almost taste the individual salt granules. There is a prickly spiciness to it that is reminiscent of star anise.
The fresh cut tobacco comes in at the end, merging with the smoky peat and that salt/pepper combo that just keeps coming. I adore this Scotch.
salty, peated and a Chili
Beautiful peety, great after taste.
Made by the sea jak się pisze. Lżejszy dym, morska słona bryza, wędzone ryby. Moja pierwsza dymna whisky. I moja ulubiona!

fumaça, doce e um pouco de pimenta
defumado e picante
Peated and smoked. A good classical one.
Zacht, met een peaty smaak/geur, maar niet overheersend
Talisker 10 changes every time you have a Dram. It is the go to whisky and a constant feature in my collection.
Brine, and sea spray, a light smoke with a a subtle honey sweetness and aniseed
Some very faint fresh citrus notes lead, followed by a nice honeyed, then comes the beautiful Briney flavour and pepper. Over all of it and rushing out the back end is a beautiful spicy smoke. like coal embers
Pepper, wood and a little vanilla then comes more pepper
It's classic maturation in bourbon casks. Chill-filtration and e150 coloring as well of course (hello Diageo's classic malts).
Mineral, phenolic nose reminds of fresh, salty seawater with iodine and seaweed. It's spicy and maritime, versatile and specific at the same time. Remarkably complex, featuring a variety of great flavor contrasts. On the palate, at first it carries the nose through almost exactly. Flavours are interesting, peat is light and long, draws smoothly and doesn't have a harsh finish. The smoke is there without being overpowering, and the taste is a vibrant combination of iodine, sweet malts and a lingering brine accented by delightfull pepper on the end. It's somewhat oily and floral too. Nicely balanced, medium body and a smooth texture. Whisky with a long finish, easy to fall in love with light sweetness of citrus fruits combining with restrained peatiness.
So, for me this stuff is a great balance of peat smoke and sweetness with a great spicy finish that lingers with the smoke.
I love it. Talisker is Talisker... 😍

Moderately peated whisky from the Isle of Skye. If you're into peated Whisky, but not hot on Laphroaig, this kight be a good one for you.
Peat smoke, iodine, medicinal, citrus
Peat smoke, iodine, plaster, sea water, citrus, slightly orangey. Medicinal. Floral. Black pepper. Overall light and fresh.
Dry and slightly bitter aftertaste. Medium lasting finish.
A nice introduction to the world of peated whisky
Overall great well balanced scotch.
mild smoke, slight citrus, refreshing sea water
smoke and black pepper, slight sweetness. Very balanced.
Long finish and very warm. Saltiness.
Torf, Rauch, Vanille, etwas Sherry, Zitrusfrüchte, Meersalz und eine Spur Seetang. Im Geschmack intensive mit Vanille, Sherry, und einer guten Portion Pfeffer. Danach kommt Rauch recht intensiev daher. Handwarm getrunken wird er zum Biest das dich verschlingt. Einer der ersten 6 Clasdic Malts.
Smoke, peat, brine and seaweed all backed up by some vanilla sweetness. Interesting whisky for the price.
Peat, smoke, sea air and brine.
Savoury smoke and peat. Salty brine with notes of oyster and seaweed. A light vanilla sweetness all the way through.
Finish is still slightly smokey and briney. Vanilla sweetness becomes slightly more prominent and it ends with spicy white pepper flavour.
Smokey and salty, excellent value for money.
Fantastico! Torbato con sentore di mare e sale! Fantastico!
Great dram, almost coal ila like but more spicy.
normally is dont like burnt smokey wiskey but this one was perfect...
Excelente Single Malte, com toque salgado ao final. Dez anos bem investidos.
classic, simple generic by the sea whisky
sea salt, slight peat, smoke, salt
Fairly straightforward semi-smoky with a slightly sweet finish. Not very complex. A great starter for people getting into peated whiskey.
l have found Talisker 10 yr to be a rather good single malt. A fair balance with some peat and smoke up front. Tastes of fruit with spices and pepper leading to a moderately long finish with notes of pepper and spice.
Smoke and peat, slight brine
Fruit with pepper and spices
Moderately long with prominent pepper and spices
some peat on the nose. tastes like the sea with a hint of peat
very strong peat and smoke flavor
Een warme, rokerige maritieme geur met citrusvruchten. Smaak van licht fruit, rook, beetje pekel, vanille en op het laatst de bekende chili-catch. Een warm, olieachtig mondgevoel. Heerlijke eiland whisky.
In der Nase Laphroaig Triple Wood in weniger intensiv: leicht maritimer Rauch, leicht süß, relativ hell. Relativ simpel aber nicht unattraktiv.
Im Mund cremig-süß und leicht vanillig. Leider auch etwas dünn.
Im Abgang ein Schwall helle, grüne Früchte, etwas Zitrone und leichte Eichennoten (Kaffee). Im Vergleich zu typischen Islay Vertretern kaum Asche. Der charismatische Talisker Chili Catch ist da, allerdings auch eher verhalten.
Als Standard, um mit rauchigen Malts anzufangen sicherlich aufgrund des PLV zu Recht eine Institution. Für den ambitionierten Genießer leider zu wenig komplex und voluminös. Da würde ich eher zu den Islay Vertretern oder der Distillers Edition greifen.
strong character, smokey, interesting palate. good drink for a good price.
A wood like smoke, light fresh fruit
pepper, malt, dried fruit , sugar
malt, next morning bonfire, vanilla cookie
Heavily peated and smoky. A little harsh to drink best, but might be cleaner on the rocks.
Taste was better than the nose on this one. A smoky and spicy whisky with some complexity.
Burnt rubber with hints of tar and vanilla. Also some slight fruitiness.
Some fruitiness, but mostly smoky and spicy alcohol burn with hints of tar on the side.
Lots of smoky and spicy alcohol burn. Long spicy heat.
A great combination of sweet malt notes, with smoky flavours. Not extremely peated.
Nice pair with oyster
Peat and hint of sea salt
smooth peatiness and smokiness, peach
Good taste. salt, smoke and a touch of pepper. nice surprise
I like it. its more like a slightly watered down Laga 16. it hits all the right notes, but with less intensity.
it needs a little more balls to compete.
Interesting whisky from the isle of Skye...
Peat, salted chocolate, fruity sweetness in the back, tobacco and huge amounts of pepper notes
Lovely Whisky, but would recommend stopping after 2 glasses.
Smokey Flavor which I Dont mind but has a weird aftertaste that I'm not really a fan of
Rauch, Honig, exotische Früchte
süßes Raucharoma, viel Alkoholschärfe
Süßer Geschmack mit lang anhaltendem Alkoholgeschmack
nice smokey, strong, full bodied
Geur: karamel rokerig , turf
Smaak:donker rood fruit , rokerig
Afdronk: warm kort
Just not for me. An overpowering smokey pettiness and a burn on the back of the throat. I know I’m probably wrong but I can’t get into these peaty whiskys.
on the nose: maritime, salty and smokey.
on the pallet: smokey, and peppery
Taste like seaweed, with some pepper.
Salty but somehow sweet
A beautiful whisky. Lots of smoky dried fruit. Good spice notes but a little sweet in the background. Really enjoying this. Almost perfect balance.
This is a good whisky for a campfire night with smoked fish on the grill. reminds me of 4H as a kid.
12 minutes airtime
glass better after 3 minutes bloom with 1 ice cube
Peat, strong hot burn, numb (this lasts too long), smoke, greenleaf, salt, antiseptics, peat, 2 cascades
4 minutes ride
Nose is that of smoke and the sea, reminiscent of Bowmore 12. On the palate: very intense, peppery spice, smoky, with a hint of brine and sweetness. Very masculine drink. Finish is lingering and long smoke.
Nice peat, smoke and salt
One of my favorite Islay whiskys, quite strong flavours but still easily approachable also for beginners.
This likely remains one cornerstone of my collection. Overall enjoyable salty, maritime feeling.
Peaty with slight scent of oily petrol. Hints of spice and fruits.
Peaty, salty and spicy, stronger than the aroma first gives away.
Long finish, hint of petrol and salt. Also notes of dark chocolate and leather.
nice balance of smoke and peat. sweet finish which was nice.
My first ever whiskey. I could taste the Smoke and I thought that was pretty cool
smokey, spicey, pepper, salt
Great scotch with smokey peat flavor but not too much so and has a surprisingly smooth finish making out a great pour.
lovely peat bomb can't get enough of peated whisky's
definitely peat lots of smoke some fruitiness and sweetness
smoke dominates but there is also some saltines,fruit,sweet black pepper and little oakines
very pleasant after the smoke there is sweetness as well.very balanced
Black pepper at the nose, salt and pear.
Very salty, a touch of smoke and black pepper. Mouthwatering.
Long salty finish.
Compared to the storm:
10yo is better at the nose
pretty much the same at the taste
storm is better in the finish
Für einen Nicht-Islay ordentlicher Rauch und schöne Pfeffer-Schärfe, dazu recht günstig, Kaufempfehlung.
super briny. the combination of smoke and salt gives me the impression of bacon. there's an earthy sweetness to it but it doesn't mellow the harsher flavors. Heather, honey, fish, smoked brisket, malt and just a touch of iodine hide beneath the surface. it's really nice.
salt, smoke, pepper
Nice peat sweet chili
One of my favorite
Light, peaty, pretty good.
Iodine, peat, apple
tobacco, fruit, softly sweet
Very nice! strong and smokey taste
Exceptional balance of peat, smoke , salt with subtle sweetness. Very approachable with enough complexity to be a mainstay of any good collection. Great price point, get on it.
Smoke and peat at the nose, salt and citrus in the mouth. Honey ending After opening the malt. Great scotch
Citrus, Salt, Light Oak
peat, smoke, sweet...all around must have
Peat, Smokey, Leather
starts out peat fading to a fruity taste
for me it finished with a Smokey, salt taste... and so much more.
krachtige rokerige kruiden smaak.
"Made by the Sea" steht auf der Flasche. Und das riecht und schmeckt man: Rauchiges Aroma, im Mund dann Rauch, Schärfe, Salz und Algen. Ein klasse Whisky mit gutem PLV!
absolutely my best whiskey experiment with it
sweat with peat! dark fruit aromas and notes while still keeping some peat/leather
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.
Scherp maar rijk
Brine, clear crisp peat, ash, dark fruuts *E150 colouring*
Nicely balanced. Light smoke and spice. You can taste the sea almost.
light smoke. apricot.
salt. brine. pepper. hint of sweetness.
salty. citrus note.
mostly salty on the nose that carries through when tasting which is replaced with smoke and a prickle on the tongue.
Salty, vanilla, sugar, a hint of smoke and iodine. Adding water brings out more sweetness.
Sweetness with a punch of smoke that powers through. The sweetness stays for longer when water is added
Salt, light pepper, hint of hospitals and smoke. Dry wood.
good and inexpensive
goes well with a couple of ice
brine on the nose, good complexity, little smokey.
Smoky and peppery with a maritime edge. Despite the higher abv it's very easy to drink. Really enjoyed it.
Excellent all around. Good amount of smoke on the nose, brine, some lemon and a little sweetness. Then BANG, black pepper. Long aftertaste. Delicious, top dram so far.
Reminds me of getting sea spray on deployment. Good amount of smoke on the nose, brine, some lemon and a little sweetness. Then BANG, black pepper. Long aftertaste. Delicious, top dram so far.

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.
Yep: peat. And peat. Pretty good--anxious to compare to a Lag 16 yr. Surprisingly, could actually taste the sweet notes, buried as they are
Easy drinking whisky, bright to begin with light oak
good peated scotch, better with a drop or two of water to open it up and balance the flavors
peat, powerful, wet old leather, salty?
with water: Carmel, oak, peat, smoke? campfire
light and round, salty and sour, astringent,
moderate to long, tannic, drying
Moins de fumée que j'aurais cru. Au finale qui n'offre pas beaucoup
dry, wood, alcohol
slightly sweet, delicate peat
sweet with a touch of spice
Mein Favorit unter den Standarts. Von allem etwas, Rauch, Süße, Kräuter, ein warmer langer Abgang.
smooth and easy drinking
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.
Peaty and light smoke
a bit sharp but a drop of water really cleans it up. great peaty whiskey
not bad good
a very good and balanced peaty whisky
Smoke at nose just the right to flow into a very well balanced peat taste
rough, light bonfire smoke, pleasant finish, sweet
A bit sharp, but otherwise well balanced, nice warm taste.
Very nice, balanced, peaty, "bang for the buck" whisky
Very good whisky with a long aftertaste of peat and a hint of smoke, well balanced taste
en veldig god wiskey, med en veldig god smak, lang ettersmak goe peat smak mild røyksmak
Smoke, peat, sweet, salt.
very complex notes with extremely interesting and complex aftertaste
sweet nose with a hint of smoke. perfect balance. maybe my favorite scotch.
Not that smokey as other typical island whiskies. Sweet honey notes in the beginnign, distinct turf in the aftertaste.
Schöner Insel-, Küstenmalt mit typisch maritimer Note. Leicht salzig, deutlicher nicht aufdringlicher Torf
Talisker 10 is not my favourite but I do enjoy it from time to time. its robust smokey, antiseptic flavor appeals to me when I what a change. I will always have a bottle in my collection.
Scherpe aanzet, rond mondgevoel, zachte afdronk met heerlijke turftonen.
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.
I love it. Talisker is Talisker... It's got everything I could ask for sweet, peat and smoke😍
Peaty. Salt. Smoky.
Maple syrup. Smoky. Dried fruit. Spicy.
Brown sugar. Peaty. Smoky. Iodine.
Briny sweet citrusy
Peaty garbage that could strip paint brushes. I've had this bottle for months and can't give it away. truly awful
You either like it or you don't with this one, it reminds me of antiseptic.
This is the only whisky I have tried that I can't stand (I have tried it many times)
peaty, small hint of orange, soft wood in the aftertaste.
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
Koksofen am Wintertag, alkoholbetont. Rauch im Vordergrund, danach Moos und Tang, prickelt im Zahnfleisch. Was für kalte Tage :)
Strong and powerful whisky. Spicy and smokey with some maritimes notes.
Smoke, peat, maritimes notes, seaweed, salt, citrus
$67 for 750ml. Love it.
big body. Good flavors
Side by side tasting with Ardbeg
Sweet and smokey
Beautiful peat doesn't overpower the delightful sherry notes
Sweetness lingers but not many other flavours develop
Beetje rokerig maar wel erg lekker
Really good balance of peat, smoke and saltiness. Might not be for everyone but for peat lovers this is a good dram for sure.
Rich smokey nose, full-bodied sweet peaty taste with a little bit of salt.
good and peaty
sweet, spicy, lightly peated
long and warming light peatiness.
a Nice dram, realy makes you Think sailor, ship and sea
Lekkere whisky, goede lange na smaak. Gerookt, iets jodiumachtig

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.
Peat, smoke, sulphur, dried fruits
Smoke, peat, sulphur, salt, pepper, spicy, dried fruits, oily
Peat, smoke, spicy, pepper, sulphur, dried fruits, oily, mouthwatering, sweet
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.
good combination of smoke, peat and salt
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.
the melding of peppery spices, peat smoke, and a slight sweetness makes for a balanced, rich, complex drink. absolutely love it.
starts with peach and orange. growing salty taste. light smoke.

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
