Talisker Skye Single Malt Scotch Whisky, 70cl

Produced at the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made by the sea since 1830, with its smell and taste instantly connecting you to its rugged maritime home. Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, windswept yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Talisker Skye pays tribute to the rich varied landscape of Isle of Skye – from soft, serene shores to the dark, jagged peaks of the Cuillin mountains. Talisker Skye brings with it a well-rounded and sweet flavour profile packed with fresh citrus, sweet smoke, peppery spice and traditional Talisker maritime notes. It's matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks.

Serving Suggestion:  Best served in a Talisker Rocks Glass, neat or with a little water.

"The latest release from Talisker is an NAS bottling which contains whisky matured in toasted and refill American oak casks. According to the distiller, this is “An easy-drinking Talisker…more approachable, but still definitely Talisker.” Certainly approachable on the nose, with tangerines, honey, and milk chocolate, before ozone and peat smoke develop. Ginger and a hint of coal tar. Medium-bodied, with citrus fruit and increasingly hot spices, though never overwhelming. Spicy peat, white pepper, and aniseed in a nutty finish."

Gavin Smith, Whisky Advocate Summer 2015

"Some people say that Scotch has lost its edge, especially compared to bigger, more bombastic world whiskies. They need to try this."

Neil Ridley 2015, Whisky Magazine, Issue 127

"This is an uncommonly sweet and fruity Talisker. Young alright, but the toasted oak works out quite well. A nice entry-level whisky and the best NAS so far from Talisker."

Body

Medium-bodied and softly textured.

Nose

The first glorious citrus sweetness of fresh oranges develops into soft mango. Maritime air with seaweed, driftwood, and salt continue under.

Soft and sweet at first, coating and tongue tingling, with light smoke. Quickly becomes more pungent and savoury with a hot spiciness.

Finish

Drier and of medium-length, with a lasting, smooth aftertaste, in which light peaty burnt embers can be found.
