Talisker 10 Year Old
A classic Island whisky from the oldest distillery on Skye.The classic stalwart of the Talisker family. The perfect companion for when the day is done, smooth, smoky with a comforting afterglow.
”A malt equivalent to The Rolling Stones Satisfaction: it’s exciting and fulfilling no mater how many times you come to it, on one level it’s mainstream, if slightly on the heavier and rockier side of the taste spectrum; on another there’s an edgier and less safe edge to it. A rich body is decorated with pepper and peat.”
“Quite dense and smoky on the nose, with smoked fish, bladder wrack, sweet fruit and peat. Full-bodied and peaty in the mouthy; complex, with ginger, ozone, dark chocolate, black pepper and a kick of chilli in the long, smoky tail.
A rich dried-fruit sweetness, clouds of smoke, strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. Peppery at the back of the mouth.
Huge, long, warming and peppery in the finish with an appetising sweetness
“Fresh, vibrant. Appetizingly briny, with notes of seaweed, fishnets, lemongrass, smoke, and damp peat. A bed of light toffee provides contrast and balance. It finishes with a knockout punch: powerfully peppery and salty. This whisky remains a beautifully dynamic and bold whisky”
