Three Talisker Reviews

“Yeah, I’m a peat head. Islay’s are great!” That’s probably something I would have said back in the day when I was ignorant of where whiskies come from and the fact that anyone could use peat regardless of where they live didn’t cross my mind. However here we are, weeks past that point, and I […]

Talisker 175th Anniversary

Thanks to /u/nsquare14 for sending me some samples. Really appreciate these, as he sent me some I’ve never reviewed as a thank you for the reviews. Talisker: One of those “odd ones out” whiskies. Ready? Let’s list why: First off, it’s peated. Quite a bit. So it’s from Islay, right? No, it’s from the Isle of […]

Talisker Storm

Finally getting to some Fine Drams supplies. Support your not so local supplier kids. Storms are a big deal. I don’t care if you’re 1 or 21… well, maybe I do, because if you’re 1, and you’re reading this, then that’s both an odd choice because you can’t drink yet and also you’re reading… Anyway, […]

Talisker 30 (2011 release)

And now we come to the last installment of “Talisker: Barely Know her!” We’re ending with an oldy (but not the oldest) and a goody, Talisker 30 (2011 release). And again I get mixed up and buy the ‘wrong dram’. This was suppose to be the 2009 version, and I ended up missing out on […]

Talisker 25 (2011 Release)

Continuing on my ongoing series I call “Talisker: Hardly Know Her!”, we have Talisker 25 (2011 Release) up next. And you may be asking yourself: Where is that large automobile? And that’s a good question for talking heads to discuss, not so much me. More so you may be asking why I put the release […]

Talisker 18

This is the first in a three part series I’m calling “Talisker: Barely Know her!” Yes, that should alienate some of my fans nicely. So, up first we have Talisker 18. Winner of the 2007 World Whisky award for Best Whisky in the World, I’ve always wondered about this Diageo sponsored whisky. It’s suppose to […]

Talisker 57° North

I don’t think I’ll ever be more confused about a distillery than Talisker. To start off, the negative, because I eat my veggies first, meat second. They are owned by Diageo (boo, boo, booo-urns!) And that makes people annoyed, as they could be making interesting, crazy things, but are hampered by a large corporation that […]

Talisker Port Ruighe

It’s the last night at our friends house in the UK, and I’m getting nearer to the end of the liver destroying vacation that I needed, badly. I don’t know about you, but when I’m on vacation, I want to eat well, and drink well. And drinking well means getting some interesting and new whisky […]

Talisker 10

Wow, 50 Scotch reviews. Never thought I’d actually hit this milestone. Go me. After reviewing 3 rare malts, it’s probably time to step down from my ivory Scotch tower and go back to some of the regular Scotch/World Whisky samples, and try to mellow out my palate once and for all. Or at least stop […]
