Talisker 20 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Skye.

Appearance

Walnut in appearance.

Nose

Mild nose-feel and good viscosity – earthy, spicy, peppery. Brown sugar, oranges, orange peel; some Amontillado sherry and smoke behind. Bitter chocolate develops, then notes of sea-weed and Highland toffee.

Body

Rich and chewy.

Palate

Oily, minerally, and peppery. Then sweet, thick and rich, with a hint of salt and light smoke in the aftertaste. Trace of matchboxes. Warming aftermath, with chillies. Drinks very well straight.

Finish

Tell-tale Talisker pepper in a long and clean finish. Earthy, irony with some fruitiness in the after-taste, and perhaps a trace of wax. Not as smoky as some examples of Talisker.

Nose:

A rich nose with a mild nose-feel and good viscosity. Earthy, spicy, peppery. Brown sugar, oranges, orange peel; some Amontillado sherry and smoke behind. Bitter chocolate develops, then notes of sea-weed and Highland toffee. With water the charred aroma increases, and it generally becomes more maritime, while remaining rich.

Palate:

Oily minerally. Peppery. Sweet, thick and rich, with a hint of salt and light smoke in the aftertaste. Trace of matchboxes. Warming aftermath, with chillies. Drinks very well straight. With water comes a voluptuous sweet viscosity that dries out gently, with pleasant acidity.
