Talisker 10 YO

Single Malt Whisky
45.8% Alcohol content


Talisker (Carbost, Scotland) is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye. The malted barley used in production comes from Muir of Ord. Talisker has an unusual feature - swan neck lye pipes. Talisker’s water comes from springs directly above the distillery via a network of pipes and wells. Talisker is famous for it’s distinctively peppery character, so hot as to make one taster’s temple steam.


House Style: Volcanic. Extremely spicy!

Tasting Notes

Taster: Jim Murray

Nose: A razor-sharp spiciness lances through demerara sweetness and rich peat. Absolutely magnificent.


Palate: The enormous build up of spice adds to the multi-layered peat. The sweetness is almost like freshly crushed grist. Wave upon wave, layer upon layer of complexity.


Finish: Massively warming and still spicy. The peat lingers while the spice bristles.


Comment: A dram to be savored and celebrated.
