Released in early 2015, Talisker Skye is a no-age statement whisky named after the Isle the distillery is located. The whisky is aged in a combination of toasted and refill American oak and is bottled at 91.6, a signature proof for Talisker. This is a permanent release and is available in most European markets, but not (yet) in the US.

Tasting Notes

"The aroma is on the salted caramel profile along with apple juice and a faint hint of peat. More caramel continues on the palate with sweet malt and barrel spices which are nicely integrated in the whisky. The addition of bitter chocolate on the end is the only added element to the straightforward sweet, smoky, salty dram. This makes a solid everyday dram for those that prefer a low to moderate peat smoke whisky."
