Talisker is the oldest Single Malt Scotch Whiskey made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment - like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It's a powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left.
On thie nose this whiskey presents powerful peat-smoke with just a hint of the sea-water salt of fresh oysters, with a citrus sweetness. On the palate it boasts a rich dried-fruit sweetness, clouds of smoke, strong barley-malt flavors, warming and intense. It is peppery at the back of the mouth. The finish is huge, long, warming and peppery in the finish with an appetizing sweetness.
