Talisker 25 Year
Peated Single Malt
Talisker // Islands, Scotland
Talisker 25 Year Old is an annual release from Talisker Distillery on the Isle of Skye. As part of Diageo's series of six 'Classic Malts' (along with Cragganmore, Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Oban and Lagavulin), Talisker gained a loyal following in the 90s. The malted barley used to make Talisker whisky is peated at a medium level.
Peated Single Malt100% malted barley from a single distillery. Dried with peat.
Cask TypeAmerican and European oak refill cask
"Both fruity, with notes of passion fruit and lemon, as well as peaty. This Talisker is an extremely mature whisky, with lovely coastal influences. Think salty seaweed and iodine. The palate is quite waxy, and very peppery, which is trademark Talisker. A tad more aggressive than the nose suggests, with a more dominant peat influence, but also subtle notes of marzipan and cappuccino. Superb!"
