Talisker 10 years 20 cl 45.8% vol. is an Island Single Malt Scotch, a Scotch malt whiskey from the Isle of Skye, one of the most remote, rugged and beautiful places in Scotland. Few whiskeys are able to transport us to their origins as Talisker 10 does, a whiskey of great balance with great maritime influence, salty, smoked, sweet, milkshake and spiced notes with black pepper.
Talisker Distillers Edition 20 cl 45.8% vol. It is a malt whiskey with the classic character of the distillery, which, in its final period of maturation, has rested in European oak barrels that have previously contained sherry, giving the whiskey an extra layer of complexity in the form of sweet notes, like raisins, cocoa and toffee that contrast with notes of sea breeze, smoked and peat, all sprinkled with black pepper.
Talisker 57º North 70 cl 57% vol. is a malt whiskey from the Island region, bottled to cask strength, which means that the whiskey has not been diluted or lowered when bottled, the result is a large and powerful whiskey with the classic notes of Talisker, with prominent notes coming from the use of peat to dry the malt. 57th North is one step above the exceptional 10 Year Talisker.
Talisker is the only distillery on the Isle of Skye, in the region of the Scottish Islands. On the shores of Loch Harport, in the village of Carbost, the distillery produces a whiskey of smoked and maritime character, highly valued and awarded in all corners of the world for its balance.
The waters used by Talisker come from Cnoc nan Speireag (Hawk Hill), located just above the distillery. The waters that flow over peat and are brought back to the distillery through a system of pipes and wells. The direct contact of water and peat adds complexity to the whiskey.
The malt used by Skye's distillery is made in Muir of Ord and is malted with peat up to a mean peat level of 20 PPM.
Talisker stills use condensing coils instead of a modern condenser. The pipes, in the form of a snake, cause part of the distillate to condense, return to the stills and be distilled again before it reaches the cooler. Talisker distilled his whiskeys three times, like the distilleries of Ireland and the Scottish Lowlands, until 1928.
Talisker's story begins in 1830, when Hugh and Kenneth MacAskill founded the distillery and built it on land leased to MacLeod. The distillery was rebuilt in 1885 and expanded in 1900, unfortunately, in 1960 a great fire destroyed it completely and was rebuilt a second time, recreating exactly the shape and size of the stills, with the aim of preserving the character of the distillery. < / p>
