Very exceptional sweet smoky whiskey
An incredible blend of sweet and smoky whiskies, which give a unique taste, the likes which I have never previously tasted. Normally, I do not like smoky whiskies, but Talisker Skye was a very pleasant surprise. Expensive, but just a small amount is a real treat!

Bought this to try but it doesn't have a smooth taste. I won't be buying it again.
Don't do it......
Only buy this if you love the smell of TPC & fake flavours. I dont mind a peated whiskey but this is like sticking you head in mouldy patch of weeds & the after taste make you want to brush your teeth. This is the only whiskey I have ever poored down the sink. If I colud get it zero stars I would. Trust me don't buy it..
One of the best.
Beautiful. I have very special memories of Talisker because my first tasting was with a female friend when with both decided to visit Skye. Everytime I get a bottle my thoughts go back to that visit to that magical island. This whisky is not for the fainthearted but it is divine. I much prefer this stated ten year old to the two other unaged bottles, Talisker Storm and Talisker Skye which both seem to have a harshness to them. This is smooth and needs a drop of water with it. I probably add too much but it comes down to personal preferences. At the moment at £30 for clubcard holders down from £44 it's a bargain. Treat yourself if you can. When I open it I will think of my friend Wendy who now lives on another island...New Zealand. Sláinte.
I keep coming back to this one.
I was a bit afraid of this one; I have had Talisker in the past and been overwhelmed by its alcoholic strength of 43% but when I saw this Talisker Skye I had to give it a go. It is an un-aged whisky, no 10 or 12 year old labels here, and it has a colossal alcoholic strength of 45.8% which is disguised by its lovely flavour of peat, smoke and a trace of caramel. It can easily handle that strength without overwhelming the palate and has along long finish that satisfies the taste senses. I keep coming back to this one: I love it ! And I have just ordered another bottle.
