Description

Crisp peat at first then softens to enormous richness in the mouth. Theres sweet, roasty malt with a heathery dryness. The sherry notes keep back some of the usual Talisker pepperiness. In its place is luscious, slightly oily sweetness with ripe, juicy fruit and vanilla



Donald John McEwen Process Operator

Distillers Edition

The Distillers Edition is unique: after its usual aging process in American oak casks, the whisky undergoes a second maturation in casks previously holding sherry. The result is older, sweeter and richer than the regular bottlings.



STRENGTH

45.8% ABV



APPEARANCE

Chestnut brown

Nose

Sharp and well focussed; no lingering, rambling smoke here. A sultana sweetness. One of the most tantalising sherry noses - certainly the cleanest

Body

Full

PALATE

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.

FINISH

Some very deep cocoa notes, vanilla and lingering quite earthy peat. An enormously chewable single malt, with sweetness having the edge on dryness.
