From a malt rich in maritime character, this adventurous release of Talisker is the first ever to be finished in pot-still Caribbean rum casks. They have enlivened he marine scents and peppery punch of this Skye distillery;s colourful character with the rich, dark and exotic sweetness of warmer climes.
Founded in 1830, Talisker remains the oldest working distillery on the Isle of Skye. Famous for a full bodied, rich character and powerful peppery finale, it is made by the sea, like the oyster beds that teem with life in the clear water of the islands West coast.
Deep, caramel aromas are balanced by sea salt, dry seaweed and warm sand on a smoky barbecue base. The texture is smooth, the taste hugely rich and sweet before the classic Talisker heat builds with a dash of salt and chilli pepper to a smoky, peppery and dry finish.
Released part of the 2020 Special Release from Diageo.
