A beautiful 20cl bottle of a 10-Year-old Single Malt. On the nose: Powerful, fresh-clean and growing in complexity like a gathering storm. Sweet maltiness with ripe red berry fruit moves to smoke, brine and an explosion of pepper. In the mouth it is medium bodied, mellow and rich, then very spicy: a pure, tongue-coating sweetness joins a nutty smokiness to embrace those spicier notes. The finish is drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.

Country Of Origin: Scotland

Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.

Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment - like a warm welcome from a wild sea. A powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left. In 1825, Hugh MacAskill of Eigg acquired Talisker House and the north end of the Minginish peninsula on the rugged, beautiful Isle of Skye. Five years later, he and his brother had built what was to become one of the world's most popular distilleries on the shore of Loch Harport. In fact, by as early as 1898, Talisker was one of the best-selling malt whiskies in the UK.

Through fire, war and financial crises, this northern outpost has remained strong: producing consistently fine whiskies which, once tried, are rarely forgotten. Sitting amongst the Inner Hebridean Scottish Isles, Skye is rugged, windswept, a place of extremes.

The only whisky on Skye, Talisker captures the spirit of its island home perfectly. Bursting with the famous smokiness, the surprising subtle notes of black pepper, and yet rounded with a smooth finish, Talisker is a delicious contradiction. Intense and powerful, the Talisker family all have a peated, smoky flavour. This flavour comes from the peat burned during the malting process, and carries on it the salted smoke of an island battered by wind and waves. Beneath the smoke you'll find soft fruits and cereal notes, and in the older expressions a rich vanilla imbued by the aging process.
