Released at the end of 2013, Talisker Storm is aged in a mix of used barrels and rejuvenated casks. The latter have been de-charred before being re-charred. Like its older brother, the 10 year, it is bottled at a higher proof. This peated whisky from the Isle of Skye is a moderate level on the peat scale, but the charred barrels kicks up the smoke a couple of notches.
Nose: Powerful, fresh-clean, and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine, and an explosion of pepper.
Palate: Mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes.
Finish: Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
