Description

Talisker 10 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a testament to the influence of the sea. The rugged coastline of Skye and maturation in close proximity to the ocean infuse this whisky with a unique smokiness and salty character.

Aroma

Prepare for a bold opening act. A powerful wave of peaty smoke engulfs you first, reminiscent of bonfire embers and windswept beaches. Hints of medicinal character, like iodine or antiseptic, might also be present, adding complexity. As the initial intensity subsides, maritime influences emerge. Look for hints of seaweed, brine, and even a touch of sea spray. Subtle notes of honey or vanilla sweetness might peek through, offering a surprising counterpoint to the smoke and spice.

Palate

The medium-bodied character offers a satisfying weight on the tongue. The initial taste is a powerful explosion of smoke, mirroring the aroma. Hints of bonfire embers, charcoal, and perhaps even a touch of ash dance on the palate. The maritime character follows through, offering a salty and savory counterpoint to the smoke. Look for flavors of seaweed, brine, and a touch of iodine. As the whiskey opens up, subtle sweetness from the casks emerges. Vanilla and honey notes offer a hint of balance and complexity. A peppery spice might tingle on the tongue, adding a touch of warmth.

Finish

The smokiness fades gradually, leaving a long and complex finish. Hints of bonfire embers and wood ash linger on the tongue, along with the subtle sweetness of vanilla and honey. The maritime character whispers in the background, with a touch of salinity and brine. The peppery spice might also linger, offering a warming farewell.
