Talisker

Talisker Glacial Edge 45 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky

At the time of writing, this is the oldest whisky ever released from Talisker. It's also the final instalment in the Xpedition Oak series. Once again, the distillery has partnered with Parley for the Oceans, an environmental organisation, Twelve heavily charred American oak casks were shipped from the Isle of Skye to Canada's Arctic ice fields. A cooper removed the cask ends and they were then left in sub-zero temperatures for four days, causing the wood to fracture and therefore increasing the surface area with which the whisky could interact during its finishing period in the casks back in Scotland. Talisker's notes say to look out for "maritime and spice notes on the nose, followed by an oily mouthfeel with chili, salted caramel, and toffee on the palate, and a long finish laced with briny salt and black pepper." 2455 bottles are available globally. 49.8% Alc./Vol.

Talisker 11 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Special Release )

The 2022 Diageo Special & Rare collection is known as "Elusive Expressions", drawn from some of Scotland’s most interesting, legendary distilleries and curated by Master Blender Dr Craig Wilson, portrays the otherworldly beings which have fiercely protected the heartlands of remote Scottish distilleries for an eternity, according to our ancient fables and the mythical creatures come to life revealing their true characters. This year each bottle has its own unique QR code which, when scanned, takes you on a multi-sensory experience that tells you the story of the whisky, the mythical creature behind the artwork, and gives you some tasting notes to prompt your nose and palate along the way. The label artwork follows almost as a sequel to the 2021 range, revolving once again around the theme of mythical beasts and stories. Illustrator, Ken Taylor, returns again and is joined this year by digital visualisation artist, Kevin Tong. Talisker 11 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky 700ml (Special Release 2022) was matured in and blended from a mix of 1st-fill ex-bourbon casks, refill casks, and wine-seasoned casks. The nose instantly transports you across to Skye, with the smell of bitumen on the road infusing into your nostrils, together with Talisker’s signature iodine and medicinal notes. Briny maritime notes abound; there’s sea spray in the air. The nose is complex, there are also hints of tobacco leaf and saddle leather. The palate is a bit softer, rounded, and grounded in the earthy peat. It possibly lacks for sweetness – the wine casks have made it a bit drier and more savoury than the sweet and punchy 8yo Taliskers that featured in the 2020 and 2021 Special Releases.

Talisker 8 Year Old Special Release Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Deep, caramel aromas are balanced by sea salt, dry seaweed and warm sand on a smoky barbecue base. The texture is smooth, the taste hugely rich and sweet before the classic Talisker heat builds with a dash of salt and chilli pepper to a smoky, peppery and drying finish.

Talisker Storm Scotch Whisky

The Isle of Skye is the birthplace of the heralded Scotch Whisky house of Talisker. And it is this island that gives this remarkable and unique whisky its distinctive character. The power of the sea and the inherent rugged location give birth to a dram of complexity, nuance and strength. With a sweet warmth on the nose and front palate that gives way to a briny and peppery finish courtesy of the skilful balancing of differing aged Talisker casks. Available only for a limited time, Talisker Storm is a truly tempestuous single malt.

Talisker 10 Year Old Scotch Whisky

Talisker is one of Scotland's remotest distilleries which produces a dram with trademark smoothness.

One of the six classic malts of Scotland, this Whisky is best enjoyed neat or with a slight dash of water.

Talisker Distillers Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky ( Bottling)

This bottle of Talisker is apart of Diageo's 2022 Distillers Edition. The idea behind The Distillers Edition is to provide an alternative expression of each whisky; to add richness, complexity and interest in the form of a different ‘take’ on that whisky’s attributes. There are seven distinctive Distillers Edition expressions (including Lagavulin, Oban, Talisker, Caol Ila, Dalwhinnie, and more), the remarkable and complex Distillers Edition process, and the people who make it. An incentive to explore The Distillers Edition itself. On the shores of the Isle of Skye, where rugged coastlines meet the raging sea, you find adventure in a bottle. Talisker single malt scotch whisky captures the elemental wildness and unadulterated beauty of its birthplace to give you a taste of Skye in every sip. Looking out over the breathtaking scenery of the Cuillin Hills, Talisker Distillery stands proudly by the sea on the shores of Loch Carport. As the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye by almost 200 years, we have been an integral part of island life and history since 1830. In 1825, the MacAskill brothers arrived on Skye from the nearby smaller Scottish island of Eigg. After several false starts, in 1830 they opened Talisker distillery at Carbost, where it remained the only distillery on the island for nearly two centuries. Through upheaval, changes of ownership, and even a fire, Talisker has always kept Skye at the heart of the brand—and the whisky. As a whisky made by the sea, Talisker shares a deep love for the beauty and fragility of the oceans and is proudly committed to protecting the ocean ecosystem for the next generation of wild spirits. Produced beside the shore of Lock Harport in the jagged shadow of the peaks of The Cuillin, Talisker is the only single malt scotch whisky made on the Isle of Skye. This Talisker has real depth of taste, adding weight and layers of sweet rich flavour to the signature peaty, peppery powder. Magnificent in every way. Talisker’s famous 10-year-old has to be one of the most beloved single malts around. The subtle ageing regime accentuates the Isle of Skye distillery’s distinctive character. Here it’s joined by a dose of sherry from a second maturation in amoroso-seasoned American oak casks with, yes you guessed it, heavily re-charred American oak ends. Just in case you didn’t know, amoroso is a medium sweet style rather like a cream sherry. The nose is salty sea spray, bonfires, and raisin-like sweetness. On the palate there is plenty of peat, backed by sticky dates, peppery spice, and a touch of salt. The finish has drying oak and lingering smoke.

Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Special Release )

Nestled on the picturesque shores of Loch Harport, with breathtaking views of the rugged Cuillins, the Talisker distillery stands as a testament to the rich whisky-making tradition of the Isle of Skye. As the oldest operating distillery on this enchanting island, Talisker has perfected the art of crafting a seductively sweet and full-bodied single malt that captures the untamed spirit of its surroundings. The distillery's location is no mere coincidence, as the pristine waters of Loch Harport and the bracing sea air infuse each drop of whisky with a distinctive character that reflects the natural beauty and wild allure of Skye. From the moment the malted barley is transformed by the peaty smoke to the slow maturation in oak casks, every step of the whisky-making process at Talisker is imbued with the essence of this rugged landscape. From the traditional copper pot stills to the aging warehouses where the whisky patiently awaits its moment of perfection, every aspect of the distillery breathes with a sense of history and reverence for the land. In every sip of Talisker, one can discern the harmony between the untamed elements of Skye and the masterful artistry of the distillers.

Talisker 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky (Special Release )

The 2021 Diageo Special & Rare collection is known as "Fables Untold", drawn from some of Scotland’s most interesting, legendary distilleries and curated by Master Blender Dr Craig Wilson, portrays the otherworldly beings which have fiercely protected the heartlands of remote Scottish distilleries for an eternity, according to our ancient fables and the mythical creatures come to life revealing their true characters. This year each bottle has its own unique QR code which, when scanned, takes you on a multi-sensory experience that tells you the story of the whisky, the mythical creature behind the artwork, and gives you some tasting notes to prompt your nose and palate along the way. The Talisker 8 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky "The Rogue Seafury" as the fable goes, on the rugged Isle of Skye stood Talisker, an enduring distillery with a fierce protector of an otherworldly nature: the ferocious Sea Fury. Beneath the smoky, mist-draped surface of the island's dark waters, this leviathan of the lochi lay in wait, keeping watch over its ancient home, imparting the whisky that leaves its shores with its powerful and unmistakably brine-licked character. On Loch Harport's serpentine banks, battered by Skye's merciless winds, Talisker still stands proud against all odds. The powerful landscapes that surround it are eclipsed only by the stories they've inspired - both shaped by the elemental forces of nature herself. But be warned: this is not a dram for any old wandering soul, this is a whisky for the wild at heart-a whisky Made by the Sea. This furious spirit writhes with cereal aromas, soon enveloped by briny seaweed and mountain smoke. The soft oily texture smoothly insinuates itself, carrying forward a bold taste with licks of savoury salt, light sweetness and pronounced smoke. From our most heavily peated reserves, the elemental power of the sea is acclaimed, finishing long and warming. The smoke lingers; this sea-monster breathes fire. A wild-spirited Scotch with a bold and brine-licked character From a selection of the smokiest reserves. Bottled at 59.7% from heavily peated refill casks.

Talisker Skye Scotch Whisky

An easy-drinking style, taking the distillery's classically rugged character and softening it out, while maintaining the smoky and sweet notes the distillery is known for. More approachable, but still definitely Talisker. Talisker Skye was introduced in early 2015, named after the beautiful island on which the distillery resides. This expression brings with it a more well-rounded and sweet flavour profile packed with fresh citrus, sweet smoke, peppery spice and traditional Talisker maritime notes. It's matured in a combination of refill and toasted American oak casks, with a slightly higher proportion of toasted casks. Perfect for those who perhaps find the classic Talisker flavour profile a bit too much, not to say that Talisker fans won't enjoy it too. Double Gold | 2017 San Francisco World Spirits Competition.

Rich and intense at natural strength, it becomes slightly sweeter, fruitier (suggesting ripe figs again) and spicier if water is added.
