Talisker is the oldest Single Malt Scotch Whisky made by the sea on the shores of the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged, yet beautiful landscapes in Scotland. Its smell and taste instantly connect the drinker with the rugged environment ? like a warm welcome from a wild sea. It?s a powerhouse; challenging but adored; once discovered rarely left. Talisker 10 Years Old is the classic stalwart of the Talisker family. The perfect companion for when the day is done, smooth, smoky with a comforting afterglow.
Region: A classic Island whisky from the oldest distillery on Skye.
Appearance: Brilliant gold.
Nose: Powerful peat-smoke with just a hint of the sea-water salt of fresh oysters, with a citrus sweetness.
Body: Full and rich.
Palate: A rich dried-fruit sweetness, clouds of smoke, strong barley-malt flavours, warming and intense. Peppery at the back of the mouth.
Finish: Huge, long, warming and peppery in the finish with an appetising sweetness.
Food Pairings: The soft texture and the depth of the extra-aged Comt? cheese tames the Talisker and makes its spicy, green flavours more accessible. Best served neat.
