Talisker Storm Bottling Note
Talisker Storm was released in early 2013 as a no age statement whisky, which was matured in specifically selected refill and toasted American oak casks. An intense and vibrant dram, the Storm offers up plenty of distillery character alongside some smokier depth and complexity.

With a classic Talisker profile, a depth of beautiful flavours and a very reasonable price point, this is an ideal single malt for those thinking of exploring the island whisky category. If you’re looking for a cocktail serving, this Scotch is simply begging to used in a Old Fashioned - now where you could find a recipe for one of those...

Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt
Nose: Initial brine, but not as abrupt as the 10 Year Old, quite creamy by comparison. Banana. Banana angel delight? Window putty, hint of sticking plasters and barbecues, citrus. White pepper develops towards the bottom of the glass.

Palate: Thick and mouth-coating with wood smoke, brine, some tin and chilli heat too.

Finish: Red chilli peppers and oak dryness with a hint of embers.

Overall: A welcome addition to the Talisker range, and probably the smokiest whisky to be produced on the Isle of Skye.

This looks store-specific, right?

Because if this is nationwide, I’ll hunt them down in every store I can until the cellar is FULL.
Which Nottingham store? There are a few

Nope. Storm is much more deliciouser. Like drinking a BBQ.

So....... that’s 2 then..... please god, please let it be ALL Tescos.
It is nationwide, however I made a complaint at my local as for the last 6 weeks it was promoted on a deal at £22, then they 'reduced'it upwards to this £23.10 ... Definitely breaks rules.
Just a heads up this is a new aged whisky (NAW), ie it's artificially aged unlike typical single malts like Glenn Keith that popped up at £20 the other day.

NAWs are vastly cheaper to make, and should have a cheaper RRP but instead distillers are selling it next to genuine single malts at your cost.

If you like it, sure but FYI
Good price for a very acceptable NAW. At the end of the day, its not too challenging for someone new to peated whisky.

I am unfamiliar with the trend of "new aged whisky". I was operating under the assumption that this is a NAS and thus has whisky in it as young as 3 years old - hence the need (for marketing purposes) to not declare the age.

I'm having a bit of a hard time finding information on what distilleries do and which are doing it. Can you provide any insight

Heard of NAS (No age statement) but never heard of NAW

Plenty of NAS whisky is good, but there is a trend towards it which is based on nothing more than making cheaper whisky at premium prices. Jura are a prime example of trying to make money from a popular brand by releasing a range of NAS whiskies. Eventually the reputation will be tainted imo

I've always known it to be referred to as NAW, NAS makes more sense now I think about it.

And completely agree. If they actually mixed it up and produced a unique flavour and adjusted the price accordingly I wouldn't be so salty about it.
