It’s a polite Talisker, but the absorption of the smoke means it has lost something integral to its being."Dave Broom, 2013, Whisky Advocate Summer 2012

A legendary expression from the oldest distillery on Skye
Extremely sharp and well-focussed; no lingering, rambling smoke but instead a wonderful sultana sweetness.
Full bodied, clean yet rich.
Crisp peat softens to enormous richness, with sweet, roasty malt and a heathery dryness. Sherry replaces the usual pepper with luscious, oily sweetness.
Deep cocoa notes, magnificent vanilla and lingering, earthy peat. Exemplary in balance between sweet and dry.
Strength: 45.8% ABV
Place of Origin: Isle of Skye
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.
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.
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.
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.
