Talisker Surge has received recognition for its quality, securing a silver medal in the Scotch Whisky category at The Spirits Business Travel Retail Masters 2022 competition in August.

The producer has described the liquid as having aromas of banana split, forest berries, American cream soda and butterscotch, with notes of banoffee pie and tinned peaches on the palate. Its finish is described as powerful and long, with notes of hot chilli spice and cracked black pepper.
