Talisker 2020 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Produced at the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made by the sea since 1830, with its smell and taste instantly connecting you to its rugged maritime home. Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. The Talisker Distillers Edition, an annual release that is double matured for up to 6 months in ex-amoroso sherry casks, achieves bitter-sweet harmony as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit. An older, richer and sweeter expression that makes a fantastic gift for whisky connoisseurs and lovers of the Talisker family of smoky island single malt whiskies. Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky Distillers Edition 2020 distilled in 2007, bottled in 2017.
Serving Suggestion: Delicious over ice or with a drop of water.
On the palate crisp peat softens to enormous richness, then wafts around sweet, roasted malt, leaving a heathland dryness. Wood controls the pepper; luscious, slightly oily sweetness; ripe, juicy fruit. To finish with flavours of deep cocoa, vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Very engaging; great sweet-dry balance, led by sweetness.
