Talisker is the only malt whisky distillery made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, windswept, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. It is a powerful, challenging single malt, with a sea-salty nose, peaty, smoky character and peppery finish wonderfully evocative of the rugged, windblown beauty of its island home.
Nose: Powerful peat-smoke with sea-water saltiness, the liquor of fresh oysters, a citrus sweetness.
Palate: Rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. At the back of the mouth is an explosion of pepper.
Finish: Huge, long, warming peppery finish with an appetising sweetness.
