A classic Island dram from the Isle of Skye. Always highly rated, this was an Editor’s Choice at Whisky Magazine. Lots of spice and fresh, tangy peat. A massive success as the island representative in Diageo’s ‘Classic Malts’ series, Talisker 10yo’s profile keeps increasing as more fans discover its intense coastal spicy, peaty character. A truly elemental malt.
Talisker 10 Years (700ML)
A classic Island dram from the Isle of Skye. Aged for a minimum of 10 years in American oak casks, this welcome member of Diageo’s Classic Malts series has been recognised numerous times for its excellence. Immensely satisfying stuff, with whiffs of warm peat blending with coastal air, balanced by orchard fruit and juicy barley. A spectacular after-dinner dram.
It was an Editor’s Choice at Whisky Magazine, a gold medal winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017 and was awarded ‘Best Islands Single Malt’ at the 2017 World Whiskies Awards.
Nose: A fresh and fragrant nose. Through thick, pungent smoke comes sweet pear and apple peels, with pinches of maritime salt from kippers, seaweed.
Palate: It’s a bonfire of peat crackling with black pepper, with a touch of brine and dry barley. A welcome delivery of orchard fruit provides a delicate and beautiful balance.
Finish: In a long finish, bonfire embers toast malt and crystallise a sugary underlay.
