For those who appreciate malt whisky at its finest, this Gift Pack houses three superb expressions of the legendary Talisker.
From the manufacturer
In 1825, Hugh MacAskill of Eigg acquired Talisker House and the north end of the Minginish peninsula on the rugged, beautiful Isle of Skye.
Five years later, he and his brother had built what was to become one of the world’s most popular distilleries on the shore of Loch Harport. In fact, by as early as 1898, Talisker was one of the best-selling malt whiskies in the UK.
Through fire, war and financial crises, this northern outpost – Skye’s only distillery – has remained strong: producing consistently fine whiskies which, once tried, are rarely forgotten.
Intense and powerful, the Talisker family all have a peated, smoky flavour. This flavour comes from the peat burned during the malting process, and carries on it the salted smoke of an island battered by wind and waves. Beneath the smoke you’ll find soft fruits and cereal notes, and in the older expressions a rich vanilla imbued by the aging process.
The Spirit of a Wild Island
Sitting amongst the Inner Hebridean Scottish Isles, Skye is rugged, windswept, a place of extremes. The only whisky on Skye, Talisker captures the spirit of its island home perfectly. Few whiskies tell the story of their origin better than Talisker.
The oldest - and only - working distillery on the Isle of Skye, set on the shores of Loch Harport with dramatic views of the Cuillins, Talisker is an alluring, sweet, full-bodied single malt that’s so easy to enjoy, and like Skye itself, so hard to leave.
Like the view of the sea from our distillery doors, this whisky is complex, and takes a while for your palate to appreciate some of the notes. Each expression has its own forthright personality, offering something distinct from the rest.

Secondly, and probably more importantly, is that the whiskies here do actually have noticeably distinctive tastes. Personally, I find there is something good in each one but for those who are just getting into whisky it does provide a range for your palette to sample. Also, if you are giving as a gift to someone you know likes whisky but you do not know which bottle to get them then in effect you are getting three attempts rather than one.
I picked up my set in the sale and at that price it is definitely five stars but at the full price it does seem a tad expensive. However, the 57 is very strong so would probably set you back a fair bit so maybe £45 for 60cl (so less than a standard bottle) is probably actually a fair price. So as a gift for someone five stars due to the fact it feels like a proper present; for your own pleasure somewhere between 4 stars and 5 depending on the price you get.
I'd say that this is a good way to find out whether you like whisky & what your palette is like.
