Talisker Storm hits the shores

The Isle of Skye’s only distillery, Talisker has just announced the latest edition to its celebrated range, Talisker Storm
This ‘smoky and briny’ Scotch whisky has been created by master blenders from Diageo from a selection of rejuvenated and refill casks. With no age statement on the label, Talisker Storm is not for the faint hearted with an abv of 45.8%.
Master blender Dr Jim Beveridge said the idea was to create a whisky that reflected the distilleries character.
“We sought out some mature Talisker, enriched and mellowed by time spent in carefully rejuvenated casks, and brought that together with some very fresh distillery character preserved by maturation in refill casks,” he said. “The result is
Talisker’s unique distillery character delivered by aged, mature whiskies, integrated in one vibrant dram.”
Talisker Storm is described as having the distillery’s signature sweet warmth and briny, peppery finish with a “deeper intensity”.
Talisker storm is now available from The Whisky Exchange.
