Talisker 10

Postby kiwicrusaders » Fri Jun 25, 2010 1:28 am

Hoping someone can help steer in teh right direction. I absolutley love the spicey, smokiness of Talisker. What other whiskies come close? I know none would exceed :-)

I have tried Ardbeg, Caol Isla and Lagavulin (all of which I like), but really want to know if there are other whiskies like Talisker.

I would say Talisker is pretty unique. I bet you'd enjoy Clynelish 14, though.

I can't think of any whisky that reminds me of Talisker 10.

If you haven't had the Talisker 18, I would say try that, while it isn't as in your face, it is still a great whisky.

Others to try
Laga 12 CS
Oban 14
Clynelish 14

but none of these are that similar to Talisker 10. Sorry.

There are whiskies out there that represent the spicey aspects and the peat aspects but I've not really found any that have both of these aspects. Maybe the closest I've found has been select bottlings of Ardmore.

Agreed. I personally find the profile of Ardmore TC to be quite close to that of Tali 10.

Have you tried other Talisker expressions?

Oh yeah, has anyone tried Bunnahabhain 12 alongside Tal 10?
