Talisker hails from the austere and rugged Isle of Skye in North Western Scotland and boasts all of the expected coastal characteristics of an Island Malt. Talisker was one of Diageo’s original six Classic Malts along with Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Lagavulin, and Oban. Despite it’s relatively remote location, Talisker is Diageo’s most visited distillery and is reputed to be the favourite drink of Robert Louis Stevenson. Talisker’s sea-inspired style makes it an absolute must try for single malt fans – a true maritimer and a true classic.
Aromas of smoked kippers with lemon juice, honey, roasted nuts and heaps of salt water spray are obvious on the nose. A little more smoked bacon, caramelized nuts, and lemon zest show up on the palate and the finish echoes with crushed sea shells and gentle puffs of bonfire smoke.
