From the Isle of Skye comes this Talisker 18 Year Old Whisky (Single Malt Scotch). It has spent 18 years in casks which previously held bourbon and sherry. A sweet and smoky malt, a must have for any Talisker fan. If you weren’t already convinced, this fabulous dram picked up the title Best Whisky in the World at the 2007 World Whiskies Awards too.
This Talisker 18 Year old whisky is quite clean and fresh. There is a mixed fruity sweetness with a spicy character. The peat and smoke rise with notes of perfume and thick oak. Hints of Calvados and a touch of acidity with ground ginger.
On the palate it is thick, rich and full-bodied. Notes of spicy, peppery oak, espresso beans and wood smoke. A little allspice creeps in, there is a certain zesty character lurking somewhere. The spice builds and builds with utter intent. The Finish is Long, with peppery oak.
Produced at the oldest distillery on the Isle of Skye, Talisker Single Malt Scotch Whisky has been made by the sea since 1830, with its smell and taste instantly connecting you to its rugged maritime home. Every sip is a taste of the Isle of Skye itself, one of the most remote, windswept yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland.
With wonderful sweetness and warmth, intertwined with just a thread of smoke, Talisker 18 Year Old Whisky is an award-winning whisky that is rich and soft but still assertive and makes a perfect gift for connoisseurs looking to explore new depths of flavour amongst smoky island single malt whiskies.
Serving Suggestion: Best enjoyed neat or add a splash of water or ice to reveal rich notes of plum, orange peel, and toffee.
