TALISKER 18 YEAR OLD 45,8%

Single Malt, Scotland / Highlands-Skye 70cl Ref: 8608

While the 18 year-old is quite rightly not considered to be the peatiest Talisker, it is nonetheless quite remarkable on every front. First it offers finesse, then complexity and finally generosity. Three vital qualities that are only possessed by the finest single malts. And, on closer inspection, the particularly peaty finish demolishes many received ideas.

Profile: refined, distinguished. Vanilla, chocolate, candied citrus fruit, walnuts and beeswax. Green mint, peat, smoke, ashes and spices (nutmeg, cloves).

Product details

Tasting note

  • Appearance : burnished gold.
  • Nose : fine, distinguished. The initial nose is remarkably well-balanced. Vanilla, chocolate, candied citrus fruit, walnuts and beeswax mingle with green mint, peat, smoke, ashes and spices (nutmeg, cloves). Remarkable refinement. Without being especially peaty, this Talisker proudly proclaims its ‘island single malt’ identity.
  • Palate : full-bodied, delicate. More refined than the nose, it suffuses the mouth with delicious sweet, salty, spicy, camphorated flavours. Oceanic, it is occasionally submerged by notes of black pepper, moorland, salt meadows, and sweet limes and oranges. An energetic, vibrant bitterness runs through it. Talisker’s charm works its magic.
  • Overall : rugged, firm. The peat now becomes ultra dominant. More so now that it has the measure of the palate’s fruity, vanilla character. The sap work has paid off. The retro-nasal olfaction offers beautifully pure malted barley, while the empty glass is simultaneously fruity, chocolatey and peaty.
The brand

The brand

Talisker, which means “sloping rock” in Norse, is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, the most northerly island in the Inner Hebrides and an area little protected from the storms of the Atlantic Ocean. Established in 1830 on the banks of Loch Harport, it has a status all of its own in the world of whisky. Its soft and peaty water comes not from streams or rivers, but from the 21 underground springs of nearby Hawk Hill. Its single malt, produced using traditional methods, has an easily-identifiable, oily character that comes from slow cooling after distillation. Find out more
