All about making whisky
A must have LMDW“ We see Talisker as one of the most complex and inaccessible whiskies around, especially in these young expressions aged in bourbon barrels. Yet when this single malt is finished in sherry barrels, a whole new world of subtle flavours emerges, where soft spices replace peppery notes and where the amoroso sherry liqueur, softer than that of oloroso, tames the dryness generated by the oak tannins. The Talisker Distillers Edition is a classic that La Maison du Whisky has been distributing since its beginnings in 1997.
The Isle of Skye, located in north-west Scotland, is subject to sea spray and spindrift and is home to just one distillery: Talisker. This inimitable malt bears the traces of its exceptional terroir, and is often included among Scotland’s greatest whiskies. Its smoky, spicy character is enhanced by ageing and finishing in barrels that have contained Amoroso sherry. This second ageing process accentuates the mellow fruitiness of the malt, softening its peaty, peppery power.
A spectacular, clear and much-loved combination of peat and mellowness.
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
