Talisker 30 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Skye.

Appearance

Light gold with green lights. Fine beading.

Nose

Immediately maritime, with resonant depth and complexity. Then, creamy brazil nuts, Highland toffee and an elusive fruitiness. Becomes more robustly smoky and deep.

Body

Clean and soft.

Palate

Sweet start; rich, custardy, nutty flavours. Salty middle, then the smoke builds into heat, with the key-note Talisker chilli hit abundantly present. Everything becomes perfumed, hinting at dried sage and lavender.

Finish

Classic black pepper; long and warming.

Information:

Distillery: Talisker™

Age: 30 year old

Strength: 51.9% ABV

Place of Origin: Carbost

Region: Skye

Nose:

Clean, clear and very pure, surprising for one so aged. Very accessible; no nose prickle. Immediately maritime; sea-air and salted fish, tarred rope and beaches, with resonant depth and complexity. Then, creamy brazil nuts, Highland toffee and an elusive fruitiness (fresh lychees) in the lingering embers of a peat fire. Becomes more robustly smoky and deep. Just a little water closes the nose, bringing up bonfire smoke and introducing more creamy-sweet toffee.

Palate:

A teasing interplay between dry and sweet. Shows great maturity. Easy to drink at natural strength: sweet start; rich, custardy, nutty flavours. Salty middle, then the smoke builds into heat, with the key-note Talisker chilli hit abundantly present. Everything becomes perfumed, hinting at dried sage and lavender. With water, elegance; the tongue tingles, and the chilli is reduced. Soft, but the smoke makes its presence felt early on. Some treacle, and a touch of dried fruit. Big and gentle, but no pushover.
