Talisker 10 Year Old 700ml
Country: Scotch Whisky
Region: Island Whisky
Age: 10 year old Whisky
Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky made on the Isle of Skye beside the shore of Loch Harport in the jagged shadow of the peaks of The Cuillin.
Founded in 1830 by Hugh MacAskill, Talisker distillery remains faithful to traditional values. A hundred and eighty years of knowledge has been passed down through generations of distillers.
Beneath the deep and stormy peat smoke character of Talisker lies a rich dried fruit sweetness, followed by a satisfying peppery finish. Superb with smoked salmon and brown bread.
Nose: A fresh and fragrant nose. Through thick, pungent smoke comes sweet pear and apple peels, with pinches of maritime salt from kippers, seaweed.
Palate: It's a bonfire of peat crackling with black pepper, with a touch of brine and dry barley. A welcome delivery of orchard fruit provides a delicate and beautiful balance.
Finish: In a long finish, bonfire embers toast malt and crystallise a sugary underlay.
