Talisker whips up a Storm
Published:  20 February, 2013

Diageo is to launch Talisker Storm – a “more intense and smoky” expression with “vibrant maritime notes”.

It will be available through domestic retail channels and whisky specialists in selected European markets. It is bottled at the traditional Talisker strength of 45.8%abv, without an age statement.

In price terms Talisker Storm sits between the Talisker 10 year old and the Talisker Distillers Edition expressions.

Master blender Dr Jim Beveridge said: “We wanted to focus on distillery character - the bedrock of Talisker Storm. So we sought out some great mature Talisker, enriched and mellowed by time spent in carefully rejuvenated casks, and brought that together with some very fresh distillery character preserved by maturation in refill casks. The result is Talisker’s unique distillery character delivered by aged, mature whiskies, integrated in one vibrant dram.”

Further new expressions of Talisker are to be launched later in 2013.
