Distillery

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: Dave Broom

Nose: Heather honey with smoke underneath. Salty again but everything softened by oak. Wet sails, oilskins, cough sweets, bitter orange peel, white peppercorn and Lochaber smoked cheese. Mature and rich. Complex.

 

Palate: Multifaceted, rounded and harmonious. Smoke is there but also a dense savory fruitiness. Great balance.

 

Finish: Elegant and long with a little pepper. Comment: Bold, subtle, sweet yet smoky. Class.
