All about making whisky
Presented in a beautiful bottle adorned with a vintage-inspired label, Talisker 5 Year Old is an expression limited to only 417 bottles. Smoky and spicy, young and lively, it is characterised by notes of smoke, black pepper, salt and yellow fruits.
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
