Talisker 18 Year Old Scotch Whisky 70cl
Talsiker’s Distillery Manager names this distinctive 18 Year Old as his favourite dram - the ideal gift for that someone who demands only the best Single Malt Scotch Whisky. An absolute essential for lovers of the highest quality spirits. Deep and stormy like the ocean crashing over the rocky shores of its island distillery, Talisker is the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky rugged enough to call the Isle of Skye its home.
Talisker has attained a sterling reputation and this hugely popular Single Malt continues to enjoy global success, receiving impressive accolades at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Though the Talisker distillery is far from large, its capacity is rather modest at less than two million litres and impressive sales of 100,000 cases annually.
Talisker distillery's process water is drawn from twenty-one underground springs that rise from Hawk Hill (Cnoc nan Speirag) beside the distillery. These same springs have fed the Talisker distillery from the beginning. As its name suggests, the hill is home to birds of prey, usually including Peregrines.
Made by the Sea
Distinctive, easily recognised and bottled at the unusual strength of 45.8% ABV, Talisker is one of the most awarded Single Malt Scotch Whiskies in the world.
Talisker has been the only Single Malt Scotch Whisky distilled beside the sea on Skye since 1830, with its elemental style truly reflecting its maritime surroundings. The name is thought to come from the old Norse for Sloping Rock, ‘Thalas Gair’. Talisker is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye.
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, those maritime characteristics emerge once again 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. The characteristic chilli 'catch' in the finish is subtly present in the aftertaste.
Suggested Serve and Food Match
Talisker is best enjoyed from a Rocking glass, neat or on the rocks.
The character of Talisker – powerful, smoky-sweet and peppery – is ideal with smoky seafood. Also try it with dark chocolate or Comté cheese.
Other Products in the Range
10 Year Old: A rich dried-fruit sweetness with clouds of smoke and strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. Peppery at the back of the mouth.
Distiller's Edition: Crisp peat then softens to great richness in the mouth. Sweet, roasty malt with heathery dryness. Sherry notes keep back some pepper. In its place is luscious, slightly oily sweetness with juicy fruit and vanilla.
