I think the confusion stems from your understanding of what a blended whisky is.
Single malt indicates the contents are from single malt whiskies only.
Talisker Storm is a malt whisky, not a blended whisky.
I would, however, suggest you shouldn't write off all blended whiskies. I have tasted some I prefer to certain malts.

When I was in the Central Belt and a member of The Scotch Malt Whisky Society
I never ceased to wonder how they came up with their tasting notes. The most surprising was, 'a hint of used Durex'…I kid you not.
I think us fellas may consider that worse than @PeteSpencer drinking creosote.
Their tastings are highly recommended.
