Talisker 25 Years Old On The Flavour Map
Taste the character and craft in every drop.

Region

Skye.

Appearance

Amber gold.

Nose

Dry and restrained with, up-front, heathery-smoky hints of un-struck matches and behind this, the rich sweetness of sugared almonds and vanilla, treacle and molasses. Then come lighter maritime scents, of sweet seaweed and boat varnish. Water brings on the sweetness, now of macaroons and smoky chocolate, balancing this with briny sea breezes and a trace of heathery smoke.

Body

Medium to full.

Palate

Hot and peppery at natural strength. Richly enjoyable when reduced with water, when the lightly smoky sweetness balances a long and warming effect overall. There's a steady flow of flavours which expand in the mouth into perfumed, heathery peat smoke and dried seaweed balanced by spicy, almost honeyed oak in a glowing, smooth passage down the throat.

Finish

Charred smokiness, sweet gentle fruit and pepper. Complex and long, keeping its aromatic profile as it fades.
