Talisker 2021 Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
2011 Talisker double-matured in ex-bodega Amoroso cask wood for rich and fruity sweetness that rounds out the peaty, peppery punch of the malty regular release, to create a richly rewarding and deeperstyle of malt. Part of our 2021 Distillers Edition range. Limited quantities worldwide.

Remarkable; the stuff of legend. Very well focused. Wonderful grapey sultana sweetness. Clean, tempting.
Magnificent; 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.
Deep cocoa, vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Very engaging; great sweet-dry balance, led by sweetness.
