Talisker Dark Storm

imageThe seasons are changing and the winds are plunging the thermometer. The time for light and fragrant is coming to a close, time to usher in the more bold and campfire like affairs. Talisker Dark Storm is nice transition to a more hearty fare.

The nose strongly evokes scents of fresh cut moss and sea brine. The nostril are drawn in to the mellow warmth.image

The palate is quickly filled with a light warm welcoming  burn that fill the mouth with a pleasant saltiness. The transition imagebetween the beginning, middle and end of the sip is a clear fluid transition. On the tongue is a mild tingling burn moving to a medium full mouth feel and then smoothly slipping away.


The finish is lasting and pleasant, leaving a slight saltiness that fades quicker than I would have thought.


This is a solid mid level Islay scotch. Not overburdened by a need to blow you away with peatiness and smoke. Enjoy the fall
