Always a benchmark. 90 points – Serge Valentin, whiskyfun.com. Serge is really right about his opinion on Talisker 10. Every whisky from Island region is compared to Talisker 10 most of the time and there is no bad feeling about it at all. The coastal profile of the whisky is reflecting the 'Made By The Sea' writing on the packaging. A great whisky with a nose having balanced peat smoke and sea salt. Wonderful palate with dried fruits, incredible smokiness and peppers. Just a pleasure to have!
