An absolutely gorgeous tasting gift pack of single malts from the Talisker distillery on the Isle of Skye. This set features 3 x 5cl bottles, including a Talisker 10 Year Old, a Talisker Skye and Talisker Storm.

The award winning Talisker 10 Year Old is The classic stalwart of the Talisker family. The perfect companion for when the day is done, smooth, smoky with a comforting afterglow of rich dried fruit sweetness. The warm, subtle smokiness of Talisker 10 Year Old should be sampled neat.

The Talisker Skye is An easy-drinking Talisker, taking the distillery's classically rugged character and softening it out, while maintaining the smoky and sweet notes the distillery is known for. More approachable, but still definitely Talisker..

The Talisker Storm has all the warm, smoky, peppery characteristics loved in the standard Talisker 10yo - but they've been turned up a notch, with more smoke, more spices, and a bigger than ever flavour explosion.

Country Of Origin: Scotland

The oldest - and only - working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins.

Talisker�s founders, brothers Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill were classic Clearance landlords. Having bought the tack [rent] of Talisker House on Skye and extensive lands in 1825, they set about forcibly shifting the resident population from their farms, replacing subsistence farmers with more profitable sheep, however one of the MacAskill�s money-making schemes was distilling.

In 1830, they opened their Talisker distillery in Carbost. Their venture into whisky-making was not a success and by 1848 the bank was in control. For the next three decades Talisker stumbled through a series of other owners who found it hard to keep afloat a distillery which is remote even by 21st century standards. In 1880, Talisker�s fortunes changed when Roderick Kemp and Alexander Allen bought the distillery. Three years later Talisker was formally merged with Dailuaine (and Imperial). In 1916, a grouping of major blenders, John Walker & Sons, John Dewar, W.P. Lowrie, and DCL took control, an indication as to the quality of the spirit.

Talisker has remained within the same grouping (the firms all merged and eventually morphed into Diageo). In 1960, the distillery burned down and was silent until 1962 while it was being rebuilt.

Talisker had long been available as single malt from independents such as Gordon & MacPhail, and also officially, predominantly as an 8-year-old. In 1998, it was given greater prominence as a founding member of the Classic Malts Selection when the age was upped to 10 years. An 18-year-old joined the range in 2004, but since 2008 the range has expanded dramatically with no-age-statement quartet: 57?North, Storm, Dark Storm, and Port Ruighe.

It is now one of Diageo�s most important single malt brands.
