The Talisker 2011 8 Year Old Rum Finish is a very special Talisker, released as part of the Diageo Special Releases 2020. This has been finished in pot-distilled Jamaican rum casks, adding extra layers of flavour to the distillery's classic salt-and-pepper maritime notes. Rich, sweet and very tasty.

Tasting Notes for Talisker 2011 8 Year Old Rum Finish Special Releases 2020 57.9%
APPEARANCE - Golden, with greenish lights. Good beading.

BODY - Medium
NOSE - A light nose-feel with some prickle. The top notes are sweet and maritime, with hints of molasses and crystalline sugar vying with dry seaweed, crystal salt and iodine, then ‘pear drop’ boiled fruit sweets below, on a smoky base with traces of charred meat. A drop of water softens the attack, increasing the maritime character and reducing the sweet notes, while introducing a hint of smoke.
PALATE - A soft, smooth texture and a big taste; salty and especially, lightly sweet, before the full-on Talisker pepperiness takes over. Very drying. Water rounds it, softening the rich sweetness and bringing up the pepper, but the profile is similar.
FINISH - Long, hotly peppery and drying, finishing sweet and smoky with the typical Talisker chilli-pepper ‘catch’ in the swallow. With water more rounded but similar, leaving a thread of smoke on the tongue.

Distillery Profile
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.
