Talisker 30 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl
Talisker 30 YEAR OLD, a rare expression, being re-released in limited quantities after the last bottling in 2017 celebrates the summit of Skye. Not unlike the anticipation of the journey to the top of The Cuillin, where majestic views await, Talisker 30 too provides a rare invitation to only a few to reach the very pinnacle of the range, where true character awaits. An elegant and complex expression with Talisker hallmarks of pepper and smoke in a softer and subtler way.
As the land rises, the elements quieten. Smooth smoky clouds swirl and part around peppery peaks. A powerful tranquility reveals the rich beauty of the rugged island.
Made By The Sea. From rugged coastlines and beastly storms, to warming sunbeams and soaring skies, the Isle of Skye powers through our veins and invigorates our souls. Unpredictable elements meet untainted beauty to create a spirit as wild as our island, so raw yet so refined.
Mild and unusually fruity, fading quickly into lush seaweed with charred sticks. Becoming soft and very slightly waxy or creamy, like fudge.
The smoke is immediate and dry with creamy oak. Almond milk and light, sweet stone fruits emerge, joined by a trace of salt.
Long, gently warming, with a lingering maritime aftertaste and just a white pepper tingle on the tongue in place of that chilli ‘catch’.
