Pouring a dram reveals a golden amber hue, the result of traditional oak cask maturation, inviting you to explore further.
The first whiff introduces a briny aroma reminiscent of the sea, followed by a delightful blend of smoky peat, black pepper, and seaweed. A touch of citrus zest adds a fresh, uplifting dimension to the nose.
The initial taste experience is intensely malty, giving way to a burst of rich, complex flavors. Notes of salted caramel, dried fruit, and vanilla make their presence known. All of these are beautifully enveloped in layers of smoky peat, adding a characteristic Talisker edge to the palate.
The finish is long-lasting, with a signature peppery kick and a salty, maritime undertone that lingers on the tongue, leaving you with a sense of the windswept Isle of Skye.
This whisky has a robust and full-bodied mouthfeel, accompanied by a gentle warmth that travels down the throat, perfectly aligning with its complex flavor profile.

Still my top.
A little sweet, a little smokey, a little ocean spray. Always enjoyable.
It came very quickly and well packaged so that the mail couldn't destroy it.
I purchased it as a gift so I can't attest to the quality of the scotch, but it came very highly recommended if that helps.
If you want a peaty, smoky scotch, this one is definitely worth trying. It is a good value at this price. The order entry process was smooth and delivery was quick. Shipping cost was a little higher than most, but not unreasonable.
Talisker 10 is a venerable single malt that does not live on its legend. It is the epitome of the well balanced scotch. Third Base had a great price, fast delivery. Will shop with TB again. Thanks.
