Talisker Distillers Edition
 45.8%    |    70cl

There’s near perfection in the bitter-sweet harmony which is such an enthralling feature of this truly classic whisky, as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit.

It’s a polite Talisker, but the absorption of the smoke means it has lost something integral to its being."

Region: Island

Taste:

in brief… Brilliant, clean marriage of peat and rich sweetness.

in a sentence… There’s near perfection in the bitter-sweet harmony which is such an enthralling feature of this truly classic whisky, as its crisp peat softens, not to pepper, but to rich, sweet, juicy fruit.

Nose:

This is beautiful stuff. Extremely sharp and well focused; no lingering, rambling smoke here. There is also a quite wonderful sultana sweetness. One of the most tantalising sherry noses you can find - certainly the cleanest. Remarkable - the stuff of legend.

Palate:

A magnificent start - the peat, crisp at first, softens to enormous richness in the mouth, then wafts around the palate with sweet, roasty malt and a heathery dryness. The sherry keeps back Talisker’s usual pepper, replacing it with luscious, slightly oily sweetness - ripe, juicy fruit and vanilla.

Finish:

Deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Enormously chewable and from beginning to last exemplary in balance between sweet and dry, with sweetness always having the slight edge.
