Talisker - 10 years old
45.8% - 70 cl
Taste guide: 10up
Talisker is an Island Single Malt Scotch whisky produced by the Talisker Distillery, Carbost, Scotland; the only distillery on the Isle of Skye. The distillery is operated by United Distillers and Vintners for Diageo, and is marketed as part of their Classic Malts series.
Talisker is known for its unique spicy flavor with an above average peat content (while not as peaty as an Islay malt). The "spicy" character (also described as "firey" or "salty") comes from the water, malted barley, distilling method, barrels, and aging process used by the Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye. The brand is well-accepted and sells as a premium whisky. The high phenol level and distinct taste may prove "challenging" for the casual whisky drinker. This is especially true in the 10 year old version, while the 18 year old has a less dramatic, more subtle flavor.
