Carronshore, United Kingdom (PressExposure) March 05, 2013 -- Talisker Whisky has announced an exuberant new expression of Talisker, named Talisker Storm which is sure to be exciting news for all whisky lovers around the world. The new expression comes with more intense and smoky flavourings with augmented maritime notes without losing any of Talisker's famous hot sweetness.
Talisker is a famous single malt distillery located on the beautiful Isle of Skye and offers a range of malt whiskies including Talisker 10 year old and Talisker Distillers Edition and has a devoted following around the globe. The distillery was founded in 1830 and built in 1831 and was rebuilt in 1960 after a stillhouse fire completely destroyed the distillery.
Talisker Storm will be available in early 2013 via retail channels and whisky specialists in selected European markets. In price terms Talisker Storm sits between the Talisker 10 year old and the Talisker Distillers Edition expressions.
Taliksker Master Blender Dr Jim Beveridge explained the creative process behind Talisker Storm; "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."
Talisker Distiller Manager Mark Lochhead added:
"Any new member of the Talisker family has a lot to live up to and I am proud to say that Talisker Storm does just that. The distinctive whisky we create with such passion and care here on Skye speaks very boldly of the dramatic island where it was born. Everyone here is delighted at the skill with which our malt masters have put together this vivacious new Talisker. Talisker Storm is indeed the right name for it!"
