Description

FULL DESCRIPTION
A harmony of peat, sea, spice and sweetness all finely tuned in your glass. The Talisker 18 is like seeing a grown-up version of the 10-year old that not only lived up to its expectations but went above and beyond. It is of no surprise that this whisky has been awarded so highly, the smoke and spice have matured into more complex flavours and are balanced by elegant sweeter notes of fruit and flowers.

TASTING NOTES
Appearance: Deep amber.
Nose: Burnt heather, wet coastal grasses and singed orange peel.
Taste: Black Jacks, smoked fish, and fiery gingerbread.
Finish: Tobacco and toasted almonds with a sweet, warm cinnamon finish.
Overall: Complex flavours across the board, yet somehow all brought together in style with an almost effortless fashion.

RECOMMENDATIONS

Connoisseur

The malt that comes from Talisker is unique. Medium peated, but with the added complexity of a water source that has run through peat itself. There’s a lot of reflux taking place in the tall stills and talisker also use a worm tub in cold water to condense. This results in a sulphury new make that adds weight to the whisky. Maturation is mostly in refill and rejuvenated casks.
