Released in 2005 to commemorate the 175th anniversary of the distillery, this bottling of Talisker is comprised of whiskies ranging from a minimum of 10 years of age and up to 35 years. Talisker released about 60,000 bottles worldwide for this occasion and though it is pretty rare to find on the shelves the bottles, it is worth keeping your eye out in dusty spirits shops and great whiskey bars.

Tasting Notes

"Greeting you with a golden amber hue appearance, the nose begins with mellow toffee notes and ends with a bit of vegetation most notably of yellow bell peppers. Light in body, there is a bit of charcoal in the back ground. There’s a desirable soft saltiness to this malt that finishes with a bit of white pepper. On the finish, I couldn't help but taste light fluffy chocolate mousse that disappeared as quickly as it arrived."
