There was a time when up to seven registered (and several illicit) distilleries existed on the Isle of Skye -- now only Talisker remains. The peat level is a moderate 16-22 ppm (Phenol Parts per Million) and their 10 year old is aged primarily in ex-bourbon casks which they constructed to a larger hogshead size. Talisker 10 Year is bottled at a very appreciated 45.8% ABV.

Tasting Notes

"Bacon and kippers, iodine, and ripe pear were first to rise to the occasion. Salt & pepper are next up with sweet malty cereal replacing the fruit. The peat smoke is a bit late to the party, but eventually opens up on the 2nd tasting. The finish is dry which intensifies the peat."
