Talisker Dark Storm Review

Talisker Dark Storm I'm always interested in new whiskies so when i seen this Talisker Dark Storm i was really hopeful that it took on the idea of the Talisker Storm and went further with it.

I really was hoping for an islay level peated dram, which this isnt, but it's certainly a very nice dram and i would happily have a bottle of this in front of the standard Talisker Storm, and maybe even instead of the Talisker 10.

This dram is only available from Travel Retail (Duty Free) in a 1L bottle form from places such as World of Whiskies

Thanks to Talisker for the official sample of this dram

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

I was expecting, well hoping for, a really big peat smoke nose but it's a lot lighter than that, stronger than the original storm, hints of light peat with a sweetness underlying thats got a hit of sweet sherry fruits light fresh and similar to the distillers edition

Palate

good sweet cigar smoke and the same underlying sweetness as the nose with hints of sweet sherry and tropical fruits

Finish

more tropical fruits along with a whiff of cigar ash
