Named for the latitude that Talisker Distillery sits, they have thoughtfully bottled the whisky at 57% ABV for double meaning. This is a NAS single malt released by Diageo and currently only available in duty free or in some UK shops.

Tasting Notes

"Smoked salt and pears are the stars here. Adding just a sprinkling of water really brings out the seaside nature of the dram. The balance between the fruit and smoke is fairly equal and the whisky is only slightly drying on the finish due to the creamy texture (without water, this whisky is more angular and spicy hot). Menthol is what lingers on the back end."
