Talisker has been part of life on the shores of Skye since 1830 and today is the island’s oldest working distillery. Famous the world over 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 waters of the island’s west coast. This is the first-ever release of “The King o’ Drinks…” as a 15 year old whisky matured only in freshly charred American oak hogsheads.
They have imbued the sweetness, depth of taste and complexity of the mature distillery character with a fresh intensity. The aroma is maritime, with the notes of sea salt, dry seaweed, peeling boat varnish and warm sand, on a base of smouldering peat. The texture is smooth, the taste unexpectedly rich and sweet before a growing spiciness comes through, with a pinch of salt and chilli pepper. The finish is long, spicy and drying. Part of a collection of eight limited-edition cask strenght whiskies. The perfect gift for whisky lovers.
A superb new expression that retains the Talisker character, while adding sweetness, depth and complexity to the overall flavour
