- Talisker 10 year old malt
I’ve never been a fan of this one. I probably like it about as much as I like 10 yr old Laphroaig. For me, just too harsh. I much prefer a nice Islay malt, or else, if its island malts you’re after, a nice Highland Park.
That reminds me, I have a nice Speyside malt sitting in the cupboard…Posted 4 years agouser-removedMember
It’s one of my favourites! I recently shot a wedding on Skye where the Talisker was pretty much guest of honour. Came out at the ceremony and stayed all day. We were all slightly merry by the end of the day (it was pressed on me and I took it easy until about 9 o’ clock)…

Just wondering, I bought a bottle of talisker 10 year old tonight as a treat.Posted 4 years ago
I’ve never had it before and wouldn’t claim to be an expert in any sense, but this actually tasted like disinfectant.
Very very odd tasting not like any whisky I’ve ever tasted before. Is it possible to get a batch that’s went off?peterfileMember
I’m not the biggest fan of Talisker 10, however Talisker 18 is one of my favourites.
It’s considerably smoother than the 10, also warmer and more rounded IMO. Less of a TCP kick to it too. That said, it’s £70-100, when you can actually get it (I had some on order for about 12 months in 2011).Posted 4 years agoransosSubscriber
I usually drink neat which was how I tried it at first then had to add water.
I’ve been to the distillery, and they recommend you add a small quantity of water. And they’re right – it really does open up the flavour.
I can’t see why you would dislike Talisker unless you’re not a fan of peated whisky in general – it’s far less medicinal than some of the Islay malts as it has some sweetness.
As noted above, the 18yo is well worth paying the extra for.Posted 4 years ago
