And still I’m not tempted by the Talisker Storm. This new version of the 10yo came as part of a box set of three 20cl bottles including the 57 Degrees North and Distiller’s Edition. I’m glad to have a new 10yo so I can compare it with my old version from at least a decade ago.

I tend to think of the Storm as Talisker’s version of the Macallan Gold but at least Talisker have had the good sense to keep their original 10yo version. Macallan have ditched theirs in favour of the NAS (non-age statement) Gold. The new Storm makes it into the Whisky Bible 2014 and scores 85.5/100. When you think it’s about £10 more than a bottle of 10yo, which scores 93/100, why bother buying the Storm?!

Jim Murray says of this 10yo in his Whisky Bible “quite stupendous malt to be enjoyed at any time” and I couldn’t agree more! One of my all-time favourite whiskies.
