All about making whisky
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).
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
