Talisker 18 Year Old 45.8%
Tasting Notes for Talisker 2011 Hand Filled Distillery Exclusive Release 55.4%
Nose: Rich and fruity – Victoria plums, greengages, perhaps dried orange peel – with some butterscotch or rum toffee and a thread of smoke behind. The smoke soon advances into the foreground and the toffee note is joined by a light mintiness. With water maritime characteristics emerge – dry boat varnish, edible seaweed. Still sweet; now with notes of iodine and the smokiness of an un-struck match.
Body: Full. Pleasant, smooth.
Palate: Sweet in front, then more assertive, with a whiff of smoke. The overall effect is warming. The development is towards smoke, coal-tar and toffee.
Finish: Medium length. Talisker’s characteristic chilli ‘catch’ in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
The oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye is set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins. Producing an alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt. Deep and elemental, Talisker is very much a product of its rugged, windswept home. Join us on the Minginish Peninsula, take in the dramatic views of the Black Cuillin, and discover why Talisker whisky distillery owes so much to the sea.
